About me and my therapy practice

As an accredited BACP counsellor, I am fully qualified as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor with over 10 years’ experience working with adults and teenagers.

Integrative counselling understands the connection between mind, body and spirit. This approach looks at your past, present and future, changing unhealthy patterns in your life

I believe we all have the capacity to move beyond our fears and challenges. Through gaining insight and compassion we can feel more confident within ourselves and as such more satisfied within our lives.

My approach to counselling and therapy is first to create a place of safety. Safety is the condition that enables us to explore conscious and unconscious issues together. I support personal inquiries at ever increasing depth to accomplish healing and continuous growth through the relationship. Healing leads to a space of self-discovery and new possibilities in life.

I am trained to listen, reflect and motivate, which provides a unique opportunity to gain a fresh perspective. It is important to feel accepted and understood for who you really are and to this aim, I provide a supportive environment for self-discovery.

I offer a friendly and modern approach to dealing with the struggles of life today. Within my working practice clients often report feeling calmer and more confident within themselves having gained clarity around the challenges and difficulties they have been experiencing. I also show clients techniques to deal with anxiety, unhelpful thoughts and compulsive behaviour.

My Practice is convenient for BH1 and beyond. 

Also counselling students in Bournemouth and Christchurch schools

Counselling via ZOOM or Teams available

My first session

The first session is 1 hour and 20 minutes, which includes a free 30 minutes. This allows us enough time to complete the assessment. The charge for this is £50. If you feel I am not the right counsellor for you then we can end the session, without charge, after the free 30 minutes, that is not a problem. It is important that you find the right counsellor for you.
