About me

Taking care of ourselves is something that we often put off always putting others ahead of ourselves. Asking for help can feel daunting and frightening but you are here and have taken the first step

The therapeutic relationship that we can develop together builds a warm safe and special space which is just for you. Talking things through with someone who is not part of your life and who has no vested interest gives you a freedom to express and honestly explore how things are for you, without worrying about upsetting someone and watching what you say. the time and space allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions without fear of judgement or recrimination.

I offer confidential affordable one to one counselling in Verwood.  Sometimes it can be difficult to access services for reasons of mobility or anxiety and I therefore also offer home visits.

If you feel anxious, depressed, find life hard to manage, if you are coping with death, loss, or grief. Struggling with feelings of anger, guilt or shame, your time with me will allow you the time to better understand your feelings, give you more awareness and develop coping strategies

I am not here to tell you what you should do as I believe that you have the answers within you. Together we can find a way forward that works for you I am here to walk by your side through the journey that we can take together. You are not on your own.

Every one of us is unique and my aim is to understand your world as it is for you. I treat people with warmth, understanding, and respect empowering you to take that next step, grow as a person and gain a greater understanding and acceptance of yourself and your needs.
