About me and my therapy practice

As an experienced BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist my aim is to give you the time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings, without fear of criticism or judgement in a safe, supportive, emphathic and caring environment.

There are times when many of us feel we could benefit from emotional support and although making that first step to see a counsellor can seem enormous, it is a really positive step as talking in confidence to a professional counsellor can help bring clarity and healing and give you much needed support during a painful or anxious time.   Counselling can help you make sense of your emotions and responses and empower you to make changes in your life.   It facilitates the freedom to talk openly and confidentially, in a place where you will be really listened to.

My practice is based in the BH9 area of Bournemouth and I work from a log cabin within my garden.  I am within easy reach of areas of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. There is a regular bus free off road and on  road parking. 

I also offer counselling sessions via Zoom and home visits to clients who are home bound or in residential care

For several years I have worked at a respected local charity counselling adult survivors of childhood abuse.   I am experienced in working with trauma, dissociation, anxiety and post-traumatic stress, sexual violence, domestic abuse and substance misuse.

I offer short, medium and long-term counselling to adults and young people over 18.   Concessions are available to trainee counsellors who are completing their personal therapy and to people who are on a low income or who are unemployed.
