Counselling and Psychotherapy in Fareham, Portsmouth, Southampton and the Surrounding Area

My name is Brent Highmore and I have been a practicing counsellor and psychotherapist in Portsmouth, Fareham and Southampton for over 10 years. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Although I have experience in helping individuals to find their way through all manner of issues, my main specialism is working with trauma.

Within the pages of this website I will give you details of my qualifications and experience of delivering counselling and psychotherapy in a range of different environments (such as the Metropolitan Police, University of Portsmouth and Southampton Rape Crisis), and as an accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I abide by their ethical framework to give peace of mind to all my clients.

Along with my counselling and psychotherapy work I am also an experienced trainer in issues around SRE (Sex and Relationships Education). Within this role I have developed and delivered workshops and training programmes in schools, colleges, youth clubs and conferences for young people and professionals on topics such as relationships, consent, sexual exploitation, bullying and cyber-bullying, internet safety, violence and many more.

I provide counselling for individuals (16+) on an open-ended basis or for a mutually agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

Some of the issues that I have had experience of counselling adults and young people for are:

  • Trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Relationships
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Attachment Disorder
  • Looked-After Children
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Eating Disorders
  • Redundancy
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Sexuality
  • Unwanted Sexual Experience
  • Panic Attacks
  • Addiction.

    My counselling practice is within easy reach of Locks Heath, Southampton, Fareham and Portsmouth. Situated on the main shopping area of Fareham, West Street Practice is a 20 minute walk from Fareham railway station, 10 minutes from the bus and coach station. There are also plenty of car parks locally.

    There are times in life when we all feel that things are getting too much, or that we feel somehow stuck. It can seem that we have to soldier on or deal with problems on our own, but it doesn't have to be that way.

    Are you looking to benefit from a place to take some time-out?
    ... to explore your thoughts and feelings?
    ... to get back some sense of control in your life again?
    If the answer is yes to any or all of these questions then please don't hesitate to get in touch... and enjoy the benefits that counselling and psychotherapy can give you.
