Welcome to WellSpace
WellSpace Counselling is a private therapy practice owned and run by me, Hannah Beckett-Pratt. I am a qualified Counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer 1-2-1 counselling for adults aged 18+, both in person and online.
I counsel from a Humanistic foundation; my belief that everyone has the capacity to cope, grow and heal is the cornerstone of my practise. And yet, the impact of change, loss and trauma, can leave us feeling distant from these life-affirming parts of ourselves.
I will work with you to rediscover the part of you that is resilient to adversity, that can make sense of things and that can thrive in the life you want to live.
My approach is relational, in that I help my clients to understand how they relate to others, to their environments and to themselves. The therapeutic relationship we will build together will also provide a new relational experience for you; one which offers the support, empathy and compassion from which you can better understand yourself and explore any changes you want to make in your life.
Please make contact with me via the contact form if you would like to arrange a free, 15 minute telephone conversation to briefly discuss your needs. Following this, we can schedule a 60 minute initial session charged at £60
This allows us the time to explore why you have come to WellSpace, what you would like to gain from therapy and to plan how we will proceed.
WellSpace Counselling is based in Alresford; a small town approximately 15 minutes drive from Winchester.
I work from a designated talking therapy room in The Station Mill. This is a health and fitness centre next to The Watercress Line train station and opposite Alresford GP Surgery. My room is on the second floor, via four flights of stairs and therefore I regret that it is not suitable for disabled access
There is a small capacity for free parking at The Station Mill and for up to 1 hour on the surrounding roads. Additionally, there is a large car park priced at 30p per hour, opposite The Station Mill. The meter accepts coins only.
I also offer online video counselling, via Zoom or Google Meet

In addition to running WellSpace Counselling, I volunteer at a charity offering low-cost psychological therapies to the Winchester community. I have also been teaching A Level Psychology at a local Sixth-Form College for the past 8 years.
Prior to undertaking my four years of therapy training, I hold a degree in Social Anthropology. Studying what it means to be human has afforded me a unique understanding of personal development, how we make our lives meaningful and how we interact with our surroundings. This appreciation for the reciprocal relationship between our sociocultural and psychological worlds continues to enrich my client work.
As a registered member of the BACP, I am committed to ethical practice and attend regular supervision, continued professional development opportunities and my own personal therapy; to continually increase my awareness, knowledge and skills.
Counselling at WellSpace is £60 per 60 minute session, whether taking place online or in person. The full fee will be payable for missed appointments and in the event of appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice.
I accept BACS payments and debit/credit card payments, payable at each session.
I see all clients on a weekly basis, at the same appointment time each week. The initial session can be scheduled at a different time.
