About me and my therapy practice

I believe in working with your individual needs. Please call me for a free, no obligation chat so I can answer any questions you may have. I fully appreciate how anxiety- provoking it can be talking to a stranger and the prospect of coming to counselling for the first time. I hope you will find me down to earth, relaxed and friendly.   I work with young adults and adults who have difficulties in relationships or recently experienced loss in life.  Maybe you are over thinking, or worrying and feeling low for no reason?  We can talk about what you are experiencing and how you would like life to be happier and more balanced.  Counselling can give you a clearer frame of mind, a more positive outlook on life and better communication with others, allowing you to cope and feel more in control of your situation. 

Practice description

I am currently working online or over the phone. I do have a room that I practice out of, when we are able to work together in person. This is based in the centre of Wimborne. We can agree together the best approach for you. I can draw on different techniques to support you understand what is happening in your life. We can create structure around the sessions, or create time and space to explore. I can introduce psycho education to help you understand reasons for behaviour or we can use art or creative tools to explore feelings and thoughts. The great thing is there will always be tools or strategies that suit you as an individual and we can work on this together.  

My first session

I will listen to you while you tell me what has brought you to counselling. We can talk about what you want from your sessions, agree how you want to work, any questions or fears you might have and agree a way forward. 

I have a down to earth and kind approach with an emphasis on building a non judgemental and trusting relationship with you. I offer a warm and caring space for you to feel heard and supported.
