Irene Flint, DipCouns (BCPC), Registered member MBACP
Sometimes it helps to be heard and seen by someone who is not directly involved and who can be with us in our distress whatever it is, someone who can shed some light on what is going on without being directive. You may be bringing something that has happened a long time ago, but which still affects you, or something from your recent past you are struggling to deal with on your own. Whatever it is, I offer a safe, supportive and accepting environment where we can explore your feelings and work with the issues in question. Although I do not offer solutions as such, I will help you to increase your self-awareness and develop your inner resources to enable you to move forward in life. I am familiar with theory and make use of therapeutic tools in my work, but believe that the counselling relationship is what ultimately makes the difference.
I offer an initial assessment session free of charge which is an opportunity for you to find out how I work and ask any questions. If you decide to go ahead, I will also take a brief personal history and agree on any goals you wish to work towards. I will endeavour to meet you at a time that is convenient for you, both daytime and evenings.
My counselling training has been humanistic and integrative and I adhere to the ethical guidelines laid down by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have been seeing clients for many years, at first in local placements offering low-cost counselling and then also in private practice using suitable rooms in Dorchester. In order to increase flexibility, I am also able to see you from my therapy room in Broadmayne which is located approximately four miles from Dorchester. We can discuss the various options at our initial meeting to see which would be most suitable.
My work is influenced by my own life experience as well as my formal training which I continuously further by attending workshops on a variety of relevant topics. I feel fully committed to my work as a counsellor and look forward to hearing from you.
