Welcome


 Andy Rogers Basingstoke Counsellor

Welcome to my private counselling practice in Basingstoke. I have 20 years’ experience as a counsellor in Hampshire, working in a variety of settings with a wide range of people and concerns.

My professional training includes a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of East Anglia, completed in 1999, and I have since undertaken many other professional development activities. I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (register no. 56904) and am fully insured.

My approach

My approach to counselling is a personal one, offering a respectful, thoughtful and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship. I trained initially in the Person-Centred Approach but am interested in anything that helps us to understand your concerns, including psychological, philosophical and political perspectives. I provide a genuine, compassionate and confidential space, so that we can work together on whatever it is that’s troubling you.

This might help in various ways: to gain insight into yourself and your relationships; to reduce stress and anxiety; to feel less overwhelmed or isolated; to make changes in your life (or begin to accept things that can't change); to work towards personal goals; or to feel more hopeful or that life has more meaning. See more about how I can help you here.

Experience

As well as working privately in Basingstoke, I have been employed for many years as a counsellor and counselling service coordinator in universities and colleges in Hampshire. I have also volunteered for counselling services in a range of settings, including an adult crisis centre, a youth counselling service, a prison and a rape and sexual abuse helpline.

Since qualifying, I have written regularly about counselling and psychotherapy and for three years was Ethical Dilemmas editor at Self & Society, an international journal for humanistic psychology. You can see a list of some of my published work here.

Outside of counselling, I am also a father, a fan of contemporary music and literature, and a keen home cook.
