I am a counsellor with 20 years experience and have completed four years advanced study in psychotherapy. I use an Integrative approach providing counselling and psychotherapy tailored to meet your individual needs. I have specialist training in working with relationship and couples. I am located in Dorset (Bournemouth, Poole, and Christchurch).
I work with adults of all ages who are negotiating life stages, or facing changes. I also have a special interest in problems facing students.
I can help you with issues such as stress, self-esteem, confidence; anxiety, panic, depression; difficulty in relationship, separation, divorce; loss, bereavement, redundancy; trauma, abuse, addictions and eating disorders.
It can be a challenge to know which approach or which therapist to choose. We can meet for an initial session to decide what’s right for you.
