Counselling therapy covering Fareham, Eastleigh, Hedge End and surrounding areas

Hello. I'm Sally Piper, a qualified and registered counsellor.

There can be times when life doesn't feel 'right' or we feel weighed down by something. We may lead busy lives and tend to prioritise other's needs, sometimes losing sight of our own. We may be experiencing confusion, anxiety, loneliness, depression, stress, loss, bereavement or relationship difficulties and be in emotional distress, but may not wish to 'burden' others and perhaps believe we should 'soldier on'. Motivation, enthusiasm and joy are often absent qualities at such times.

Whatever may be impacting you, counselling provides the time and space to prioritise your needs and explore and understand what is going on for you. As a counsellor offering counselling therapy for Fareham, Eastleigh, Hedge End and surrounding areas, I can help you find your best way forward, overcome problems and adversities you may be facing, and feel more in control. I can work with you to identify your strengths and build on your resources, explore and make sense of past and current events and recurring patterns in your life, and help you understand and express your feelings more fully.

I provide face-to-face counselling for individuals aged 18 and over and have experience working with a wide age range as well as with a wide range of difficulties.

Although this list is not exhaustive, I work with the following:

    Low self-esteem/low self-confidence
    Low mood
    Loss and bereavement
    Relationship difficulties
    Work related issues
    Life changes

I offer a private, safe, professional, confidential and accepting environment for us to work together, always respecting that you are the expert on yourself, although you may not currently feel this. I will be genuinely interested in you, helping you to explore what your experiences mean to you and how you are impacted by them. I will regard it as a privilege to be able to accompany you through your process at a pace that is right for you, treating you with compassion and respecting your dignity at all times.

At its heart counselling is about attentive listening, so that you feel heard and understood. It may be the only time when you do not need to hide your feelings away, dress them up, or worry how others may react or be affected.

I believe everyone has an innate capacity for change and growth. If you want to make changes in your life, I will support you and work alongside you.

I am a qualified and registered counsellor offering counselling therapy for Fareham, Eastleigh, Hedge End and surrounding areas.

If you have any questions about my practice or would like to make an appointment, please text or phone me on 07938 218967, or click here to email. I will be happy to hear from you and aim to respond within 24 hours, or next working day.

Registered member of the BACP practicing in accordance with their Ethical Framework.

December 2019

As we move into December thoughts of Christmas tend to fill more of our time. We may feel uplifted at the prospect of a festive period filled with connection, joy, fun and warmth. However, with internal and/or external expectations of happiness and perfection, there is also the potential for feelings of anxiety, stress and overwhelm. For some of us it can be a difficult time of year, with feelings of loss, disconnect and loneliness exacerbated.

Whatever feelings the Christmas period brings up for us, it is important to practice self-care. The Mental Health Foundation has provided some advice and tips that we all might benefit from at this time: Looking after your mental health at Christmas.

"It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself."
