Charlotte Parker MBACP
Hey! My name is Charlotte, and I'm both a Counsellor and the Clinical Director at Southampton Counselling Practice.
If you're reading my profile, then chances are that either you, or somebody you care about, is going through a really hard time at the moment. And I know that picking up the phone to get help can feel really overwhelming and scary.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP (No. 395033). Verify here.

"Charlotte is an amazing therapist. She doesn't try to give me the solution, she helps me find my own. I have felt better in each session."
"She’s such an amazing therapist, she will listen to you and never judges you with anything, you can be yourself around her, she will give you all the time in the world just so you would say anything in your mind, she will not tell you what to do or what not to do but she will give you some advices, she’s also such a sweetheart and she gives you positive energy."
Working With Me
I'm not like most counsellors. I don't try to tell you what to do, or how you should be feeling. I don't use big academic words like that makes me an expert in your life.
What I do instead is simple. I listen.
I listen to you, and I work with you as your ally. I am warm, I am kind, and I want to help. I treat you with respect and dignity. I do not judge. I'm a human being who has seen plenty of life and I know that you are too.
I am a Person-Centred counsellor. That means I focus on building a genuine working relationship between therapist and client. I put you in full control of our sessions, so that you decide what we talk about, but I'm there to help you find the feelings behind them. If there are any answers to find, then we find them together, as a team.
My work is confidential. I will never share anything you tell me, unless there is an extremely good reason to do so. If you choose to work with me, I will explain the rules of how I work to you clearly, so that you feel like you fully understand them.
No subject is off limits with me. I have a very broad range of experience in three years of practice. This included working for a bereavement service, an alcohol and drug addiction charity, and a health insurance provider. I work with all kinds of issues and am trained and qualified to do so.
I offer a 20 minute consultation on the phone, completely free of charge, with no obligation to work with me if you do not wish too.
If you decide you would like to work with me, please send me an email enquiry. I work on Mondays, both over the telephone and on video calls.
