About me

Hello, I’m Bernadette, and I provide on-line, telephone and face to face counselling. I am based in Bridport, and in easy reach from Dorchester, Yeovil, Weymouth, Honiton and surrounds. I also provide counselling at locations of your choice with prior arrangement.
I am an experienced Person- Centred Counsellor, and this means that I provide an environment that helps you to explore issues and problems, feelings, beliefs and behaviours in a way that enables you to move towards reaching and fulfilling your true potential.
Finding the right counsellor can be daunting, I offer a warm welcome, and a safe and supportive environment. I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session, and this will help build a trustworthy relationship where you are able to disclose anything that is troubling you. Your journey through counselling can help you recognise the bigger picture, make connections and help you move towards the life you want to live- This is known as ‘self- actualisation’, which I believe is accessible to everyone.

I have recently returned to Bridport from working in Cardiff, where I met and supported many incredible clients. My passion is to see people grow and develop, and I have supported clients with anxiety, depression, low mood, low- self- esteem, anger, loss, loneliness, traumatic life events and transitions, and those experiencing relationship problems.

If you would like to find out further information, please call me on 07813108409, I am always happy to chat. Currently, I am offering online and telephone services. Demand for this type of therapy has increased in these challenging times and it fits well with on- the- go lifestyles.

I ascribe to the ethical value of providing clients with effective and confidential therapy, and work in accordance with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists code of ethics.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
