I have recently qualified with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I work with a counselling charity for people who have experienced sexual trauma. I have worked as a qualified social worker for 36 years and have a lot of experience with trauma survivors of both domestic abuse and sexual trauma. I have many years of experience in social work working with people who have diagnosed mental health problems and since becoming a counsellor I have provided counselling to people with a diagnosis of a range of serious mental health problems.
What I am trying to say is that no matter what your difficulty is, I am happy to meet with you and work out how we can work together to make things better. If you want help to improve making choices or decisions, or if you want to reflect deeply on things that you have experienced, I will work with you.
About me and my therapy practice
The mode of therapy I use is Person Centered with the added protocol of the Three Phase Trauma Model. If you have been diagnosed with or are curious about complex trauma, the Three Phase Trauma Model will help you find safety and understand your symptoms and triggers. You can then move on to making sense of the things that have happened to you.
The Person Centered mode of counselling emphasises collaboration and working together as equals on the goals you choose.
Together these modes can help people with complex trauma.
If you need help overcoming a life event or improving choices and decision making, Person Centered Counselling can help in a time limited way or in an open ended way.
I have rooms in Wimborne, Broadstone and Bournemouth.
