About me

About Harbourside

Counselling

I am able to offer counselling services from my counselling practice located in Broadstone, Poole.

Are you unhappy, anxious or struggling with day to day life? Do you wish you enjoyed life more? Have you been suffering from stress, depression or anxiety in your professional life or relationships? Perhaps you're wanting to make changes in the way that you react or feel about people or things. Together we can discuss and explore what's been holding you back, and identify the reasons for your feelings. I can help and support you to work towards making changes and moving forward with confidence to a more fulfilling life.

Walking Therapy

I also offer walking therapy - traditional counselling but based outside in the fresh air, walking and talking together while also exercising, de-stressing and absorbing the sights, sounds and smells of nature.

Why does walking outdoors help with counselling? The mental health charity Mind carried out research a few years ago which showed how walking outside could help reduce anxiety and depression. Their research showed that 71% of respondents felt decreased depression and less tense after walking outdoors, while 90% felt their self-esteem increase after a walk. Combine this with talking to a therapist who is there to support you to explore your concerns and make changes, and you have a recipe for success.

I am able to meet walking therapy clients at Harbourside's beachfront location, where you would be able to get changed and store your belongings during our session.

About Me

I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy which means I work within the boundaries and standards of behaviour set by the BACP’s ethical framework.

I worked in the NHS for 25 years and in that time I became skilled in actively listening to patients, understanding their stories and helping them to resolve issues that were causing them distress. I realised that I wanted to develop my listening skills further to really learn to help people to explore their worries and concerns, and so decided to retrain as a counsellor in 2013.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA (Hons) Integrative Counselling (final year starts September 2018)
  • CPCAB Level 4: Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • CPCAB Level 3: Counselling Studies

I have previously worked as a counsellor in a Bournemouth GP surgery and so have experience of working with a large variety of presenting issues. Most recently I have worked as a counsellor at Dorset County Hospital, seeing patients and relatives who have been affected by cancer.
