Expanding Southsea Counselling

The History

After leaving Portsmouth’s Charterhouse Counselling around 2011/12, I centred my LGBT Couple Counselling practice within The Marple Cross Centre, Southsea.

The Southsea location allowed me to branch out with additional counselling services (now that I was attaining qualifications in couple work and group work). The Marple Cross Centre was also accessible by wheelchair users, with the offices located on the ground floor.

My services remain accessible to Southsea and surrounding areas of Hampshire (Gosport, Portsmouth, Hayling Island) via my LGBT Counselling Services over Zoom & Skype (click that button!).

Southsea LGBTQ+ Support

My counselling services were located within The Marple Cross Centre, located on the coast of South Hampshire, just 5 minutes walk from the beach (Osborne Road, Southsea, PO5). A single-story set of offices with four counselling rooms all on the ground floor, all wheelchair-accessible.

Southsea was my second private counselling practice location in Hampshire.

After working within The Marple Cross Centre for a handful of years, I came to join the management team as co-director. We enhanced the services that the therapy centre provided to the local Portsmouth & Southsea region, and introduced a very powerful, and free, website-based: “Find a Therapist” service. Find a Therapist combined all the data we had on all private therapists associated with our Centre. The website presented a friendly interface, which one used to indicate personal ailments, and obtain a list of  suggested therapists who could help. Bookings could be made within minutes. The service was queried by local Hampshire residents seeking therapy over 100,000 times during its lifetime.

Eventually, The Marple Cross Centre served its purpose and the management team decided to close and move to separate practices within Hampshire.

My next location was to establish Waterlooville Counselling, some five/six miles north of Portsmouth & Southsea and Cosham.
