About me and my therapy practice

BACP accredited counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor with over 18 years of experience. 

My approach is humanistic integrative, I am specialised in addiction/behaviour disorders, trauma and anxiety. I run my private practice in Bournemouth and remotely via telephone and other online platforms.

Practice description

I have been trained as a integrative humanistic counsellor.

I follow Roger's principal that the person seating in front of me knows best and will know how to move forward, therefore my role is to enable you to find resources within yourself to make the move you choose to.

In my approach, I create a safe and accepting environment where  the therapeutic relationship is key.

My first session

I offer a 15 minute free phone consultation for all new clients. 


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

Therapy is a team effort, 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 both parts can discuss the practical side of the therapeutic work and continue things from here onwards.

About me and my therapy practice

As an experienced counsellor, I offer professional clinical supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and trainees since 2009.

Practice description

As a supervisor I believe that you know best and together we can work for the best interest of your client work, so we both know that you and your client are safe.


You will feel supported, your theoretical approach respected and you can express yourself without judgement and grow. Together we will explore issues with reflective consideration using Inskipp & P Proctor's Normative, Formative, Restorative Supervision Model and Seven-Eyed Model of supervision.

My first session

I always begin with an initial assessment, for both parties, where where we discuss a therapeutic agreement and ensure that our supervision follows BACP's ethical framework guidelines.

If we decide we can work together, we will find the best available times and platform for our sessions.
