WE suffer MORE OFTEN IN imagination THAN IN reality.

Nigel Newman

Nigel Newman Founder and Therapist

"For me, being a therapist is
a calling. I am passionate about what I do."

Nigel Newman is the founder counsellor at Solutions Counselling.  He is qualified & certified as a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and National Counselling Society, a practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and highly experienced in a range of complementary therapies to help resolve life issues.

Nigel was born locally to Liphook and has lived in the Bordon area for most of his life.  

Having been drawn to hypnosis and psychotherapy purely out of interest and as a source of self-understanding Nigel was amazed at what he discovered and how inspired he became.  Nigel loves to be continually challenged and his fascination with people along with his desire to understand them has led him to continue his education along these lines.

Nigel’s love for the human condition and his deep empathy for those in difficulty led him naturally to pursue the subject as a qualified therapist. One of his greatest strengths is his tenacious ability to never give up and he hopes this is demonstrated in the work here at Solutions Counselling.

Nigel is extremely humble when it comes to his many successes. He is in fact so good at what he does that Solutions Counselling has not only grown purely from word of mouth, but Nigel has been so remarkable at helping people that he is often called upon to help many celebrity and high-profile individuals, even being flown out to various locations internationally to assist them with his therapy services.

Jen Kershaw

Jen Kershaw Integrative Therapist

"Joining the team at Solution’s Counselling has been a fantastic privilege, I feel blessed to work alongside others who share the same dedication, empathy and practical approach to therapy."

Having an extensive background in complementary therapies, Jen’s desire, belief, and passion are in the autonomous human ability to facilitate our own healing with a little help. In counselling developing a safe, open, and honest relationship between counsellor and therapist creates the foundation for genuine healing and positive change to occur.


Throughout your sessions with Jen you will feel free to explore any issues you have at your own pace; safe and held as you work together organically to discover what will help you best. Jen’s approach is pluralistic and solutions-based with a focus on personal freedom, awareness, self-mastery, self-acceptance, and resilience. 


Having broad life experience Jen is able to comfortably empathise and relate. She welcomes everyone, operates an LGBTQ+ safe space, and works with people of all ages, faiths, races, cultures, and ethnicities.  Jen’s style can be somewhat unorthodox, as her own journey has taught her the value of sensitively walking alongside others, wherever they may find themselves.  


We all require help sometimes and working together we can draw on a myriad of techniques and strategies to help you with any issue causing distress.
