About me

My name is Annemieke and I've been working as a counsellor and trainee psychotherapist in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area for over 5 years, helping people with a variety of emotional issues. I practise using a particular type of psychotherapy called Transactional Analysis, you can find out more about this by visiting my website.

How I can help you
I can help you by providing a safe, confidential, understanding and non-judgmental listening ear. We will develop a therapeutic relationship through which we can explore the patterns that you have developed in your life and relationships.

Your first appointment
At your first appointment, we will discuss how we will work together and what you are hoping to achieve from therapy, if you know.
We will get to know each other a little and see if we both feel that we are able to work together. There is no obligation to continue with further sessions following this initial appointment. Therapy usually works best if sessions are weekly.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Transactional Analysis, having completed a four year course in 2016. I am a psychotherapist in advanced training and will be a qualified psychotherapist once I complete a dissertation and exam.

I am also an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, which means I have over 450 hours of experience and have completed a written assignment demonstrating my skills, experience and ethical practice.

I have worked for over 3 years as a volunteer counsellor at a local charity which has just been nominated for a Queen's award.

I have been working in private practice for over 3 years.

I am also a qualified nurse and have over 20 years of experience in helping people with terminal illness and chronic neurological conditions such as motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
