Hello my name is Gina and thank you for visiting my professional profile page. I strongly believe one of the key ingredients for therapeutic change to take place is the relationship you have with your counsellor. With this in mind, I offer a discounted rate of £25 for your first 50 minute session which will be an assessment. This is so that you can decide whether you would like to work with me.I provide a peaceful and calm environment in which to work in, near to Fareham Town Centre, and well placed for those seeking counselling or psychotherapy who live in the surrounding area, such as Wickham, Knowle, Whiteley, Locksheath, Warsash and Titchfield, or even as far afield as Southampton, Portsmouth and Southsea. My private practice is close to junction 10 off the M27. There is free parking which just outside on the drive. Through my own personal experience of counselling I have found that by being heard by someone who is genuinely there for me, without any fear of being judged and experiencing true empathy and understanding has enabled me to explore certain aspects of myself and my life and become accepting of who I am. I can offer a creative way of working for both long term and short term therapy, and I have many years experience working with clients who want to lose weight and address their issues with over eating.ÊSince 2004 I have attended many CPD work shops which have provided training in: National Centre for Eating Disorders to work with Obese and Over Weight Clients – trained by Deane Jade.CBT, NLP, Life Coaching, Group Work, Style and Image workshops, Hypnotherapy, TA, Dawn Breslin’s Confidence Coaching.You will find more information about me and my practice on my website www.ginabate.com.
