About me

Do you worry about your future, relationships or work?

Do you ever feel like you don’t know who you are?

Do you scroll through social media searching but are not sure what for?

Do you ignore signs that you should be taking more care about yourself?

If any of those sound like you, then Inner Child Therapy for adults may help. In this work we explore your relationship with you, with your past and with others. We use creative counselling to heal woundings and to champion your inner child so you feel empowered, you belong and know who you are.

You can join me in either group work in Weymouth or Dorchester or work with me one-to-one, in person or online.

Training, qualifications & experience

Specialisms/Experience:

I specialise in working with adults and their inner child who is key to common mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.

I have worked within primary care from 2016 to 2019, working within several GP surgeries as a counsellor supporting those with a common diagnosis of anxiety and depression, and a variety of other mental health issues.

In 2018 I set up my first Mental Health Support Group for surgery patients in Yeovil and explored various techniques to help promote positive mental health. Later the same year I set up a counselling service at Penn Hill Surgery, which supported both patients and trainee counsellors from local colleges such as Strode College.

I run Inner Child Therapy Groups in both Weymouth (at Furzedown Farm) and Dorchester (at The Breathing Space).
