About me and my therapy practice
As an experienced, Person Centered / Integrative Counsellor I specialise in supporting individuals, couples and families affected by sexual violence. I work to the BACP ethical guidelines and offer a professional, confidential service.
You can book sessions with me privately or through: BUPA, Health Assured, Care First and CRISP (Counselling for Dorset Carers)
My approach is to focus upon the person rather than the problem and this is achieved through the therapeutic relationship, by providing safe, non-judgemental and empathic support. My practice is based in Highcliffe, Christchurch and I would be happy to discuss your individual counselling requirements with you.
Many of us face challenges in our lives that we find difficult to cope with. Counselling can help empower you to take control of your life and begin to move forward.
