Life is very much up and down hill journey, with bumpy rides that we just don't foresee. Clients that I work with often feel that life is getting on top of them, they are not living the life the want. I am here to provide a safe, confidential and creative environment in which we work together to open the door to new beginning. Counselling is about talking but also is about changes.I won't provide solutions but will work with you to explore the problems and help you to find your own path. I am warm and honest, I really hope I am the person that you are looking for to support you with your journey.
Do you feel you are struggling with issues and feelings that don't go away or get any better? If this is the case, finding the right counsellor is very important and in my experience as a counsellor the building of relationships with clients is the key to working in a collaborative way and being able to move on and finding ways to cope with any issues that may occur.
I am good at listening, empathic towards my clients, very caring and understand that taking the first step in calling someone is very hard and can be daunting.
I hope I am the person who can help you and be there for you when you are finding things difficult. I hope to hear from you, otherwise I wish you all the best with your future and journey.
Why did I become a counsellor?
I used to listen to people talking about their problems and I instinctively felt I could help them. I trained as a counsellor and discovered I had the gift of empathy; that I was able to clearly understand how people feel when their lives are in turmoil. Often people need someone to listen. They need to feel someone understands and empathises.
What do I do?
People think counselling is about helping clients to change their lives. It is. But, the counsellor doesn’t tell you what to do; we support you in making decisions about your future. Talking is therapy. Counselling is not about telling clients what to do; it is about listening, caring, showing empathy and understanding. It is non-judgemental. It is guiding clients towards finding their own path.
I knew I had found the right path for me.
Through my training, I have learnt how to ensure a client feels comfortable and relaxed enough to be able to share their worries and concerns; to be able to speak, sometimes for the first time, about the traumas they have suffered. Clients can feel able to scream or shout, to cry or get angry, I will be there beside you, completely focussed on you, just listening and guiding you through the tunnel towards the light.
Part of the process of counselling that I use is to identify patterns of unhelpful or negative thoughts, behaviour or feelings that are often associated with the problems people face. We then work together to overcome the problems and to replace the negative thinking or behaviour with helpful and more positive responses.
I am not here to tell you what to do. I am here to listen and help to enhance your life and help you live it more fully, if you choose to do so.
At present I am working for Dorset Rape Crisis. Also I am part of DCFCT (The Dorset Child and Family Counseling Trust).

I hope I am the person that can help you and support you through your journey
Client Feedback January 2016 - February 2016
Very helpful, got me back to a positive mental state. The counsellor understood my difficulties. Also the counsellor treated me with respect and understanding. I would recommend this counsellor to others who are experiencing difficulties.
Sole is such a warm and welcoming person; she put me at my ease immediately. She helped me to see that I could forgive people and let go of the things that had been dragging me down. Thank you so much, I wish I had taken this step earlier. SM Bournemouth
