About me

There are many varied reasons why people come to counselling, these may include bereavement, relationship and family issues and PTSD.

I am a humanistic counsellor and supervisor. My fundamental belief is that my client is the greatest expert on themselves. I provide my client with a protected environment by which they can explore issues that have stopped them living the life they want. I believe that personal growth will stem from this.

In my private practice, I work from my home in Boscombe Manor. My practice is easily accessible from Bournemouth and Poole. Some parking is available, more during the day than evenings.

I offer online counselling via SKYPE

I can also see clients in The Consulting Centre in Branksome.

Training, qualifications & experience

My primary training is in the Person-Centred approach, although I have considerable experience with Gestalt Therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP. I adhere to their ethical framework.I have a Diploma in Counselling from Middlesex University. I have achieved the BACP Certificate of Proficiency. I hold a post graduate Diploma in clinical supervision. I have attended many courses for CPD. including addictions, art therapy and relationships. I hold an advanced DBS certificate.

I have worked with a wide range of clients... men, women, families and parents of people with learning difficulties. In addition to my private practice, I have created and managed a counselling service for people with learning difficulties. This was in an educational setting, where I worked with people struggling with conditions such as ADHD, Autism, Downs syndrome and Williams syndrome. Some of the issues around these conditions were relationships and exclusion. This service was linked to Harrow College, where it grew to be a placement for trainee counsellors. I have been an associate of the Albany Centre in St.Albans for many years.
