About me and my therapy practice
I am a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in many different theories. I am Accredited with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with the UKRCP as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I have professional liability insurance and an enhanced CRB check, and I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I offer confidential sessions to individuals 18 years and over from my comfortable and private therapy room based in Lower Parkstone, Poole, Dorset. There is ample car parking space outside.
People seek talking therapy when they have a strong desire to change the way they are feeling, especially when this is affecting their well-being, relationships and quality of life. Counselling with me offers everyone a warm, non-judgemental, sanctuary, where we can explore your thoughts and feelings with someone who is not emotionally involved in your life, who will listen, believe and understand. Together, we will then work through your problem to help you make the changes you need.
I have many years experience of working with people across the age range, and have worked with children and young people, and with those diagnosed with cancer, and also their family members and friends. My speciality lies in helping people overcome depression, anxiety and stress, in particular young professionals and young people.
