Counselling and Psychotherapy in Southampton and Online

by Brigitta Modroczky, BA(Hons) MBACP

Life can throw tough challenges your way. If you've faced abuse or wrestle with anxiety, depression, PTSD, or grief, remember you're not alone. I'm here to provide caring support in your healing journey, offering a safe space to process, grow, and learn coping skills.

Counselling and psychotherapy enables you to look into what is going on for you in a judgement-free environment. Psychotherapy is also non-judgmental and takes place in a safe environment; but even so, it can delve deeper into feelings, perspectives, and personality.

Because I am fully trained in the person-centred approach, counselling and psychotherapy are usually combined together in my practice in Southampton. However, I have discovered that the therapeutic alliance itself, specifically the requirement of cultivating conditions, is restorative to healing.

Frequently, a relationship or a number of them is the source of disconnection and limitation, and therefore emotional turmoil.

Deeper feelings may rise and the sense of being understood during the therapeutic process; this can be a precise strong experience, or it can be a gentle support to self-understanding and recognition.

You may find that you connect with or discover more of yourself as a result which may be a painful experience. However, with this awareness, you may develop confidence in yourself and your judgement, and you may process towards growth.
How I can help you? image

As a person-centred psychotherapist based in Southampton, my passion is to help people deal with trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grieving, and addictions. I am committed to helping individuals to heal from their trauma and rediscovering their inner strength and resilience.

My career as a therapist began when I earned my bachelor's degree in Person-Centred Psychotherapy. During my training, I realised the person-centred approach had a profound impact on making clients feel seen, heard, and valued. The approach's emphasis on the therapeutic connection as a catalyst for healing and growth struck a deep chord with me.

In addition to my person-centred training, I hold a diploma in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use ACT methods as a complementary modality, adapting my approach to the specific needs of each client. This combination enables us to collaborate on a therapeutic plan that fosters awareness, acceptance, and committed action in line with personal values.

In my work with clients, I create a safe and non-judgmental environment in which they may explore their experiences and feelings. I believe that each client is an expert on their own life, and my duty is to help them on their journey towards healing and self-discovery. I use a variety of methods to help clients develop a deeper understanding of their experiences and emotions, including empathy, reflection, validation, and exploration of core beliefs and values.

One of my strengths is helping clients build a sense of self-compassion and self-care. Many of us who struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, and other issues often grapple with feelings of shame, guilt, and low self-worth. I work with clients to challenge these negative beliefs and develop a more positive and compassionate relationship with themselves.

I recognise that the impact of trauma and other issues extends beyond the individual, affecting their relationships and interactions. Therefore, I also work with clients to navigate the complex dynamics within their relationships, fostering healthier and more supportive connections. I'm committed to ongoing education, I stay up-to-date with the latest research in trauma therapy and regularly attend workshops and retreats to deepen my own self-awareness and healing journey.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I follow its Ethical Framework in my practice. I also adhere to the General Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR), so I recognise the security of your personal information and, as a result, minimise the risk of a breach of confidentiality. When working remotely, I reduce risk by keeping my computer and phone secure.

If there is a serious risk of harm to yourself or another person, I may break confidentiality. Furthermore, if a child is in danger of harm, confidentiality will also be broken; this legislation is detailed in the Children's Act 2004. I am also required by law to break confidentiality if money laundering or terrorism is revealed (Money Laundering and Terrorism Act 2017).

In addition, I have a current enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, and hold full professional liability insurance.

Individual Therapy

Person-Centred counselling and psychotherapy at my office in Southampton once every week at an agreed time.

Counselling in Hungarian Language (Terápia Magyar Nyelven)

A haza édes nyelve sokszor jobban elősegíti a megnyílásunkat és fejlődésünket; olyan érzésvilágot tesz elérhetővé, ami más nyelven kevésbé lehetséges. Ha úgy érzi hogy a magyar szavak könnyebben jönnek, és szeretné a terápiát magyar nyelven lefolytatni, kérem jelezze ezt felém az első találkozásunk alkalmával!

Remote Counselling

To meet the needs of my clients, I provide online and telephone therapy. This allows you to use my services from the comfort of your own home. For online counselling, all you need is internet access via a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. Or just a phone for telephone counselling.

Initial Session

I recognise that entering the world of counselling can be intimidating, so I offer a free 30-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit to work together. Fee: free / 30 minutes

Fees

My counselling fees are based on a sliding scale, which means that we can adjust the cost of each session based on your individual financial circumstances. The range for my fees is between £45 and £55 per session, but I am happy to discuss options for lower fees if needed. My goal is to make counselling accessible to everyone, regardless of their income level.

  • Royal mail house, Terminus Terrace, Southampton, UK
  • (Due to the historical nature of the building, unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible. I apologise for any difficulties this may present.)

Contact me today for a free consulation. If I am unavailable to talk immediately, I will endeavour to answer you within the same working day. Alternatively, you can use my contact form. Please complete all the fields as required. Flexible hours available, please contact for details!
