I am currently offering online counselling with flexible appointments to suit your needs during the day and in the evening.

I also offer walk and talk in various locations in East Dorset whilst working to social distancing guidelines.

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 to work on overwhelming or challenging emotions which can cause stress or anxiety and are preventing you from living the life you want to lead.

Perhaps you feel out of control, lost or stuck?

Would you like to improve the relationships in your life? 

Change the way you react to people or events?

Counselling is a safe, comfortable and confidential place to explore and reflect on what is troubling you. By working together we can help you open up about your feelings without being judged or criticised.

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 also offer walk and talk therapy in Dorset.

We can agree together on 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 offer a free half-hour consultation for us to get to know each other and I can explain how I work and answer any questions you might have. 

I will listen to you while you tell me what has brought you to counselling. We can explore 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.
