About me

I'm ok... I'm ok ...sound familiar when you're feeling far from ok? Life can be tough and you might be experiencing a difficult time, counselling can help with this. I'm Charlotte an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.  I believe that talking therapy can help you!

I offer a safe and non-judgmental space and time enabling you to explore and understand your situation better. 

Maybe you're feeling low, anxious, or going through a life transition such as a break up or bereavement ...I can help you make sense of what you're going through and feel comfort and relief through this understanding.  We can focus on what's important to you, helping to improve your wellbeing, achieve your goals, gain a more balanced outlook and rewarding life.

I work face to face (COVID safe) in Ringwood, Hampshire, and by telephone or video call (Zoom) - suiting your needs.

I am qualified in PREVENT COVID 19 -ensuring your safety if you want face to face sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I specialise in working with adults and young people dealing with life changes, bereavement, loss, anxiety, depression, stress, anger and relationship problems.

I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Person Centred Counselling. I also draw on other types of counselling such as, solution focused and mindfulness. We can work in a variety of ways to suit you and your needs.  I am a qualified one to one counsellor.

I believe that working together you will be able to find the way forward that is right for you and I can help you focus on what you may like to change and understand better.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
