About me

Counselling and Hypnotherapy at our Wimborne Therapy Centre in Dorset

We acknowledge and appreciate this is a very difficult time for all both Emotionally and Financially, talk to us and Lets Get This Done together.

  • Therapy for Anxiety
  • Get unSTUCK - step out of the rut
  • Unwanted Thoughts and Behaviours
  • FEARs and Phobias
  • Everyday Normal Life Issues
  • Relationships
  • In an emotionally or physically challenging place?
  • Someone who will listen to YOU.

Our experienced, straight forward and friendly practitioners, will work closely with you to identify the underlying causes of problems and/or develop personalised coping tools.

Integrative Humanistic approach, using a creative and personalised programme to support your personal journey to wellbeing and long term resilience.

You do not need to be in an emotionally or physically challenging place to benefit from our support.

In fact “we firmly believe that everyone would benefit from a regular therapy session a few times a year".

Think of this as preventive action; an investment in your own personal wellbeing for the longer term.

Member organisations


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.
