About me and my therapy practice
I work with people from all manner of backgrounds and ages that are facing a wide range of life's challenges including relationship difficulties, longterm health conditions/disabilities, and abuse. Healing from the emotional impact that has caused stress, anxiety, and depression. Yet I also work with people to explore their personal aspirations/life and career goals too. Building self-esteem, confidence, and internal motivation to reach health, and lifestyle goals.
I have a relaxed approach yet effective too. Supporting people to overcome a variety of problems in my private and voluntary work. Working together to separate past experiences and unhealthy personal beliefs (inner critic) from the present. Bringing a calmer way of being so that you feel more confident, happier and in control of your life.
I focus on my client's own story to undercover personal meaning and deepen understanding. I sometimes use metaphors, visualisations to help clients express their experiences, their meaning - uncovering hope and personal aspirations. However, how we work depends on your individual needs and focus. Feel free to call or email to chat about what support you need
I am a Person Centred / Humanistic Counsellor, and a member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP ).
I belief that everyone is able to have a more fulfilling and authentic life. Sessions will help you to develop your self-awareness, self-condifence, an understanding of how you relate to others, and ability to make decisions that are right for you.
I offer both short and long term counselling either 1 hour sessions or 1 half hour sessions which gives you with the time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, nurturing and non-judgmental environment at a pace that works for you.
My practice is based in Poole and Milborne St Andrew. I am also able to meet in Blandford, Dorchester, Wimborne (subject to room availability).
My first session
I offer a free half hour telephone session so that you can get to know how I work and ask any questions and there is a short assessment form that I ask you to fill out to make sure I am able to offer you the support your need (or if you prefer we can fill it out together).
