Thank you for looking at my profile. 

January 2022 

During the pandemic I am working with staff within the NHS, and so unfortunately I have no current availability.  

My Best Wishes


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, supportive 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.  

I have a Diploma in Online Counselling skills undertaken through OCST and recognised by ACTO (Association for Counselling Online).  During this time of considerable challenges around the Coronavirus it is helpful that I already have an online counselling practice. For some people it can be an incredibly useful and convenient way to access counselling. Some of my clients will use both in-person and online therapy to give them flexibility and choice.  

I am located in central Bournemouth close to The Triangle. Additionally I can sometimes offer counselling across three further locations - Highcliffe, Christchurch and Southbourne . To view these 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.
