Counselling Southampton

Counselling or psychotherapy is where you can explore any difficulties that are troubling you in a safe and confidential environment. It is a process where you and I would work together to make sense of your world and where you fit into it.

Living in today’s fast pace society, where we have a great deal of responsibility on our shoulders, we can sometimes feel like there is no time to listen to our emotions and we can neglect ourselves. But our emotions are very important and we need to invest in them from time to time. We can be forgiven for forgetting to take care of ourselves when time goes by so quickly, yet we could all do with being a little kinder to ourselves – getting back in tune with who we are, and what we want out of life. So, where do we turn when we feel that life is getting too much, or we cannot move on from the past? Perhaps you feel that your life isn’t turning out like you had imagined or something is holding you back?

Here at James Penney Therapy I offer the opportunity to take some time to focus on you and rediscover what’s important. There is always a way to bring about positive life changes if we only dedicate some time for doing so.

Topics that I deal with include:


  • Stress and anxiety
  • Anger management
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Problems with personal relationships
  • Family issues
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Addiction
  • Self-harming behaviour
  • Abuse
  • Sex and intimacy issues
  • Eating disorders
  • Sexual orientation & gender identity
This is not an exhaustive list and I recognise that you may feel that your issue may not fall into any of these categories so I would encourage you to get in touch and discuss any questions you may have regarding the suitability of my service using the online form.
