How I can help

My name is Zana Parker and I am a qualified and accredited Counsellor with about 15 years experience. I work with adults who come with a range of concerns, difficulties or things they wish to explore.   


In addition, given my rather unique blend of qualifications, I have a special interest in working with anyone who has concerns arising from pregnancy, birth and/or becoming a parent.


I work in private practice near Totton, Hampshire in an easy-to-find location outside the town. My room is located just off the main A35, accessible from Romsey, Southampton, New Forest, Winchester and surrounding areas.


Do browse around my website to find out more about me and the counselling service I offer and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

What might counselling help with?

There are many reasons why you might choose to have counselling...

  • You might be finding it difficult to adjust to a change in your life, perhaps following bereavement, divorce or separation
  • You might feel "stuck" or unsure and feel unable to move forward
  • You might feel sad, anxious or tense
  • You might like some time just to focus on you and to explore how you relate to others and the world around you


Perhaps you'd like to...

  • Understand yourself more deeply

  • Build self esteem
  • Lift low mood or depression
  • Move forward from a life event
  • Understand and manage anxiety or stress
  • Adjust to change
  • Be kinder to yourself
  • Understand and improve the way you relate to others
  • Live a more fulfilling life

Pregnancy, birth, parenthood

Being additionally professionally qualified as an antenatal educator and hypnobirthing teacher I also have a special interest in working with people who want to explore concerns connected to having a baby. For example...

  • Feeling anxious or scared about labour and birth (even if you're not yet pregnant)
  • Postnatal depression
  • Suffering a scary or traumatic birth experience
  • Miscarriage
  • Pregnancy termination
  • Feeling disappointed
  • Coping with new emotions
  • Struggling with adjusting to parenthood
  • The impact of a baby in your life

Please contact me if you think you could benefit from counselling at this challenging and sometimes overwhelming time, whether you're a parent, member of the extended family or a friend.
