STOP-PRESS: counselling continues to be available via reliable & confidential Skype / Zoom Video ~ ideal for self-isolation & shielding. Click here for details…
Skype / Zoom Video Counselling- June 2021: During our national emergency, my contribution was to offer 13 years experience of Zoom & Skype Remote Counselling, suspending face-to-face sessions, and making more appointments available. As we move out of Lockdown I'll continue offering national video counselling, helping us to transition back (Video/Webcam Counselling Details).
Gaining access to Havant Counselling.
It is best if you try to arrive at my offices (address shown below) about a minute before your session. For security and privacy reasons, you will not be able to gain entry to Havant Counselling on your own.
Current Procedure: The entrance to Cove Therapy Rooms is via the security gate between “Endless Gifts” and “Costa Coffee”. The gate remains locked until your appointment time (the intercom is for the residential flats only). Arrive at the security gate just before your session time. I will come to unlock the gate at 1-minute to our appointment, and accompany us to our counselling room. This allows us to begin on time and keeps us safe.
If you are late for our session, I will stay around the gate for a few minutes but then return to the counselling room, locking the entrance gate behind me. You will have to contact me on my mobile number to gain entry (if you don’t have my mobile number please ask).
If you arrive much earlier than your session time, there are various establishments in Havant town centre that may accommodate you (pub/restaurant at the end of the town centre, McDonalds or the Costa Coffee cafe / Greggs cafe next door).
Please do not try to gain entry by pressing the intercom buttons for the residential flats.
