About me

I offer clients a professional service tailored to meet their individual concerns. A full two session assessment is conducted before the start of therapy. The assessment explores areas such as 'What the client wants to achieve from counselling' and ' How do you think therapy can help you?'. It also includes, what to expect from counselling, a check on your current well-being and other relevant factors such as ' Is there anything you think you might be uncomfortable with?'. I feel that successful counselling is about providing clients with the right therapeutic service for them.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Foundation Degree in Counselling
  • Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling Therapy
  • Advanced certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Certificate in Counselling concepts

I began my journey as a Counsellor at Brockenhurst College, Hampshire where I studied my level 1,2,and 3 counselling certificates, after which I joined E.D.A.S. (Essential Drug and Alcohol Services) in both their Bournemouth and Poole offices. Whilst there I completed the level 2 certificate in Addiction. My professional qualifications include: Diploma in Integrative Counselling, Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a Foundation degree in Counselling,
As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (B.A.C.P) I have had to take a proficiency exam and be registered: my registration number is 093939.

I have counselled at the B.C.H.A (Bournemouth Churches Housing Association) in Boscombe and more recently I have worked for 'Together' - a national mental health charity. Currently I work in my own private practice in Winton, Bournemouth. I also work in partnership with the YMCA Bournemouth, where I manage, counsel and coordinate a team of student counsellors in their counselling service for clients and members of staff. I have a current D.B.S (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate and am fully insured. All certificates are available to view on request.

Continuing professional development is also an important part of ensuring that I keep up to date and learn new skills; most recently I have attended an introduction to working with sexual issues and an eating disorders workshop.
