About me and my therapy practice

My approach is humanistic integrative, I follow Roger’s principle that you know best and will know how to move forward, therefore my role as a counsellor is to enable you to find resources within yourself to make the move. I work in a way which suits my clients needs so I may integrate TA to provide more structure and promote movement and if appropriate, I may also integrate some Gestalt techniques. Gestalt focuses on completing unfinished business, I might bring these different approaches together in my practice work. I use these three theories which studied during my training.

I have worked with a variety of clients with different counselling needs, including common mental health problems, relationship problems, recovery from addiction and abuse, depression, making sense of divorce/separation and much more. 


Practice description

I run my private practice in Poole, remotely via telephone and other online platforms.

I can also offer walk and talk counselling in some of the beautiful areas in Poole.

My first session

I offer a 15 minute free phone  or online consultation for all new clients so that you can ask any questions you need to.

The first session is about getting to know you and to help me complete the initial assessment, I'll ask some questions about your life.

Therapy is an equal relationship, so I will give you the space to also ask questions about our work together, so you can also do your initial assessment.

We will discuss the therapeutic contract, where we can discuss the practical side of the therapeutic work and continue if you decide to.
