About me and my therapy practice

During this challenging time I am offering counselling online and by telephone. I hope to resume face-to-face counselling in the north of Bournemouth once it is safe to do so.

I work in a way to help you to use the time and space to talk about the things that are of concern without feeling judged. During the initial session we can agree your goals and objectives in therapy and then work towards them, whilst providing ongoing help and support.

I have 40 year's experience working in the private, public and voluntary sectors that helps me bring a down-to-earth reality to my work with both short and long term clients.



Practice description

My core approach is person centred, which means I work in a way that allows you to set the agenda for each session. I aim to offer you support and empathy so that it becomes a safe place to explore the issues and concerns that bring you to therapy.

I have a range of tools to help you manage your life and relationships better and we can discuss what is most appropriate for your situation.

I aim to help you understand and take better care of yourself so that we can work towards you being able to manage your life for yourself.

My first session

I use the first session to understand the issues and concerns you have which bring you to counselling. I will ask a few questions to understand your current situation and some of your history so that we can agree goals for therapy. There is no obligation to book a particular number of sessions, so we can agree a flexible programme that best suits your circumstances.
