My Portsmouth consultation room located in The Marple Cross Centre, Albemarle House, Osborne Road, Southsea, PO5 3LB – opposite the Queen’s Hotel (click for location map) – five minutes walk from Southsea Hoverport.


I usually offer appointments in Portsmouth & Southsea on Monday afternoons & evenings, and Friday mornings, but other days and times can be discussed (contact me to discuss).


Portsmouth Counselling with Wheelchair accessThe Portsmouth building is ground floor (wheelchair access & facilities), off the main road and opposite The Queen’s Hotel.  It is equally distant from both Portsmouth Harbour railway station, and Portsmouth & Southsea railway station.

Across from Albemarle House is the Southsea Common which can be a peaceful place to be after a session (when the weather is nice!) and near the coast; Southsea Clarence Pier and the hovercraft is a two minute walk from the building (ideal for Isle of Wight clients).

Within the building we have a reception and a comfortable waiting room with toilet facilities including properly equipped wheelchair toilet facilities & a specially designed wheelchair ramp to facilitate access into the reception from street level (all counselling rooms are on a level floor).

The building is accessible by wheelchair & suitable for the mobility impaired.

If you bring someone with you for support, your friend is welcome to visit the many local shops, museums and coffee shops/cafes during your session as, for confidentiality and health & safety, we are unable to cater for someone sitting in the waiting area during someone’s counselling session.
