About me and my therapy practice

At times in our lives we can face difficult circumstances. I offer friendly and professional support to help you find new ways forward. Together we’ll work through what you choose to bring to counselling at a pace that suits you. I provide a safe, warm and confidential service to all my clients.

I work as an Integrative Counsellor. My approach is to identify what would be of therapeutic benefit to you and integrate this into our sessions. I have a sense of humour and am creative, which is reflected in how I work. 

We work together; side by side and step by step.

As an accredited integrative counsellor and former neurological nursing sister I have extensive NHS experience of working with chronic illness. Following counselling within sexual abuse and trauma I also offer EMDR - a unique and powerful NICE approved therapy that treats trauma, anxiety, depression self-esteem and phobias. I'm also trained in Anger Management. 

BeWell Counselling is located across three locations - Highcliffe, Christchurch and Bournemouth. To view the Bournemouth and Highcliffe locations, please visit my website. All the rooms are private, comfortable and modern with available parking.

Please give me a call at 07873 134 069 to arrange an initial session or visit for more information.
