About me and my therapy practice

Hello! Now counselling in Beaminster, West Dorset, I have many years of experience of working with people of all ages and backgrounds from a mainstream therapy approach, and covering a wide range of issues and life events that people can find difficult to cope with on their own. These include depression, living with grief, responding to the different stages in life including teens, mid-life and menopause, retirement and end of life, issues in relationships and marriage including sexual problems, coming to terms with abuse in various forms, anxiety and overload, mental and emotional issues and many others.

We will work together in a professional process to explore what is going on for you in the present, and perhaps reflect together on things or people that have influenced your becoming the person you are. Counselling accepts you as you are, and enables you to find hope, wholeness and work out "where do I want to go from here", then helps you take the next steps. 

Sometimes a few sessions is enough to help people move on, sometimes it takes us quite a few months to work through areas of life, how they are affecting you, and how you can live differently.

I have a lifelong interest in spirituality, and particular experience of working with people affected by their involvement with churches and faith, but this only comes into working with clients if they want to include this aspect of their lives.

Do get in touch if you would like to have a free trial meeting together, to see if you think counselling with me can help you. Incidentally I always have a limited number of spaces at minimum cost for those who cannot otherwise afford this chance of growth and wholeness, e.g. single parents, those on benefits etc.
