About me

I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor and have been in practice since 2010.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my experience involves working with young people including children diagnosed with ASD, adults, couples and families.  I am a qualified clinical supervisor and supervise the work of pastoral staff in schools across Poole.  I run my private practice from Westbourne in Bournemouth offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to work.

Working with Trauma

A lot of my work has involved working with trauma. Whether that be a recent life event, i.e. death of a loved one, an accident or witnessing a traumatic event, or, an event(s) that happened many years ago and has been buried deep inside like childhood abuse. Opening up and talking about those traumatic events can sometimes feel scary and impossible to put into words. Some of my clients have preferred to express their stories through their dreams, poems and artwork and they feel safe using this metaphor. Every picture tells a story, a story that sometimes, cannot be put into words.  

My work starts with the principle that it is all about you, your struggles, your uniqueness and exploring the best way for you to move forward.

        Philosophy

        I work with the person sat in front of me and everything that person brings to the counselling room.

        Whether it's working with adults, young people or families, the principle stays the same: it's all about you.
