Choosing the right counsellor for you can be difficult. What helps you to make that choice? Is it how someone looks in their photograph, how much they charge or how far their practice is? What do all the qualifications mean? How can you tell who is best for you? I believe that it is all about the relationship that develops between counsellor and client and that cannot begin until you have both met.
Trust your gut feeling when looking at all the counselling profiles and chose who feels right for you; you will soon know if you can work with that counsellor after your first meeting.
Hi my name is Rosie and if you want to find out more about what I can offer you see my website eastdorsetcounselling.com.
I currently work from counselling rooms in Parksone.
I am an integrative humanistic counsellor which means I use a blend of different therapy approaches to help my clients with the issues they bring to counselling.
I also work with the belief that all people have a tendency to move towards what they need in life, so long as the conditions needed for this are in place.
I have had extended training on working with psychological trauma which may or may not be connected with childhood. I work with clients with PTSD, acute or chronic.
I use mindfulness techniques, when appropriate, in counselling sessions.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
