Counselling and Psychotherapy

Inside out
Stephanie Petrelli- Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor

About me

Hello and welcome to my page; my name is Steph Petrelli. I am a qualified, professional Psychotherapist with a Master of Education in Counselling Psychology and a registered member of the BACP.
In a very busy and hectic world, I believe counselling is one of the few places people are truly able to dedicate some time for themselves. It can be extremely helpful and effective to talk it out with someone who will listen with compassion and without judgement.
Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to follow a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I was a teacher for 5 years. It was this experience that developed my passion for wellbeing and that set me on the path of helping others and focusing on mental health. During my counselling career, I have had the chance to work with both adults and young adults suffering from a wide variety of issues. I currently work at a university counselling centre helping to support students throughout their education using a brief, solution-focused framework. I also provide longer term counselling support for a charity in Portsmouth. 
Some of the issues I have worked with are:

  1. Anxiety 
  2. Depression
  3. Eating Disorders
  4. Relationship issues
  5. Abuse 
  6. Stress management
  7. Bereavement
  8. Self-harm
  9. Assault 
  10. Lack of confidence/Self-esteem

My Approach

Inside Out Counselling came from the belief that our bodies are greatly affected by our minds. A lot of the physical pains we experience can be linked to our mental struggles. Therapy can help to explore this, helping to heal our mind as well as our bodies.

I can offer you a warm, safe environment to help you explore your problems without passing judgement. No one is more of an expert on your life than you and I want to understand and work through your problems with you. I value your experiences and what you bring to our sessions.

I have always been a part of a multidisciplinary team and therefore use methods and strategies from a variety of approaches, all depending on with whom I'm working. This integrative approach allows me to tailor each session to your specific needs and experiences. It is important to me to ensure you are getting the most appropriate support that works for you. I may use techniques from various counselling models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Brief Solution Focused, Gestalt, Mindfulness, Person-Centred, as well as other methods.


Getting Started

If you think counselling might be right for you, we can start by having a confidential chat about what you might be looking for. Our initial discussion will involve answering any questions you may have and organising our first meeting.
During our first meeting, we will discuss what has brought you to counselling and it will give me a chance to get to know you a bit better. We will also discuss what you'd like to get out of our work together and what length of counselling you'd like (short or long).
Our work together can be short-term (usually 4- 6 sessions) or longer, more open-ended. If there are concerns about being able to access face-to-face work, I can also offer video sessions. If you're going through a difficult time or would just like to talk about feelings and thoughts you can’t cope with, please get in touch. 


  1. All sessions are approximately 50 minutes.  
  2. First session/Intake Assessment- £25
  3. Regular/on-going sessions- £40 
If you book 6 sessions in advance, I can offer a discount of 15%- saving you £36.
