About me

I have over thirty years experience in and around the NHS so have supported many people, with many different problems in many different ways. Now a BACP registered Psychotherapist I work to offer a helping hand to adults in crisis through my wellbeing, psychotherapy and coaching service. Your own crisis may vary from from relationship problems to redundancy, from bereavement to bullying, but if you are feeling anxious or lonely, isolated and invisible or maybe you have just lost sight of who you are because things around you are changing, I may be the person you are looking for.

If you are in need of some time out and want a safe and confidential space while you work things out with someone who genuinely cares then call me. Do it now because you don't want to wait till things to get so bad that they turn into a lifelong health issue.

I am willing to meet you in Wimborne or Dorchester for a, free of charge, chat in the first instance so we can work out how best to start helping you.

I am fully insured and I am able to offer both long term support and outcome focussed short term support tailored to meet your specific needs. I will ensure we have regular reviews as part of your therapeutic treatment plan to help you track your progress with the changes you are making.

The first half hour is free so we can jointly decide if I am the right person for you. At the end of the day you will need to feel comfortable with whoever you choose to work with.

Thereafter I charge £50 per 50 minute session.

I offer concessionary rates for students, older people and those facing financial hardship.

Cancellation, without 24hr notice, will be charged at the full fee. I do not charge for holidays but would appreciate advance notice and I will do the same regarding my own holidays.

Arrangements for telephone coaching can be made for some clients.
