About me

I am a Person Centred / Humanistic Counsellor, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP ) with over ten years counselling experience.

My approach to counselling is based on the belief that every one of us has the ability to move in the direction of a more fulfilling and authentic life. During our sessions you will be encouraged to develop your self-awareness. Counselling will assist you in understanding how you relate within yourself and relate to others. This will assist you in becoming more empowered when making decisions about your future.

I offer both short and long term counselling which provides clients with the time and space to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe, nurturing and non-judgmental environment.     
My practice is based in Spetisbury, Blandford Forum being a 20 minute drive from Poole town centre. I am conveniently placed to see clients from; Broadstone, Corfe Mullen, Dorchester, Wimborne, Shaftesbury and the surrounding areas.
