I am an experienced counsellor living and working in the Bournemouth area.
At some stage in our lives we all encounter problems or situations which are difficult to face and work through alone. It can be helpful to talk to someone who will listen without judgement in a safe, confidential space and to explore the thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may be negatively affecting our life.
I offer counselling to individuals and couples, working as an integrative counsellor, using a variety of approaches as appropriate.
I find techniques based on compassion focussed therapy to be very helpful in dealing with a range of issues which are based on our unhelpful thought processes and which can have such a negative effect on our sense of well being.
My areas of expertise are in relationship issues, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression but I am also equally experienced in working with people with a whole range of diverse problems.
I also run courses in relationships and bereavement - please visit my website for more information.
