Hello and Welcome,
You might be looking for a counsellor to talk about a specific problem; maybe you are feeling anxious and stressed or maybe you are struggling with relationship issues. Whatever you are going through - I would like to help.
I am a Poole and Ealing based counsellor in private practice and work with adults on a short to long-term basis.
When people are seeking therapy, it is usually because they are going through a difficult time in their lives and are feeling in need of help and support through this period. I provide an accepting space for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings around your current issues and enable you to discover new ways to cope for the future.
Therapy is about you My role is to support you to find your own path. We work collaboratively and at your pace.
- Face to face counselling - appointments available within the week
- Skype and telephone counselling offered
- Home visits in the Poole and Bournemouth area
If you would like to know what it is like to work with me, why not arrange for an initial (no obligations) session? Then we can meet and you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
