About me

It may be that you are dissatisfied or unfulfilled with your life, or you may be struggling with a specific problem. Perhaps you are feeling stressed or depressed, or in a crisis and need to talk to someone.

I am a warm, genuine counsellor, who will treat you with respect and non-judgement. I see my task as a counsellor to help you gain insight and understanding about your situation and help you find new ways to resolve the problem or crisis you may be experiencing.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and work with an Integrative Humanistic approach. This means I work with the view that each person is a unique individual and that given the right conditions has the potential to change. I believe that each of us has an inner drive towards a meaningful and healthy life. Counselling offers a safe and confidential relationship in which you can explore your problems and help you make that change.

I am trained to work using Person Centred, TA and Gestalt approaches. I am also a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. My training and experience means I can fit my approach to suit the individual needs of my clients.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP number 658960) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

I have an ethical responsibility to have regular supervision with a qualified supervisor.

I have professional indemnity insurance and cover for counselling and supervision.

As a professional registered with the Information Commissioner's Office, I am required to ensure my practice is in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018.

I offer individual face-to-face counselling for both short-term and long-term work.

Please give me a call or email me if you would like further information and would like to arrange an initial 30 minute free assessment/meeting. This meeting is an opportunity to discuss how I can help you and see if you would like to work with me.

I am able to offer counselling sessions at my practice in both Christchurch and Highcliffe. The facilities at both these premises provide a comfortable and professional environment for you to explore your problems.
