About me

Do you feel stressed, anxious or depressed about a personal or work issue? Perhaps you feel exhausted with worrying thoughts. You want some one to talk to who is professional, experienced and friendly. I specialise in helping adults like you to feel better and cope without additional worries about being judged.  Day/evening and occasional Sat. appointments. My offices are in Bournemouth but I also do online counselling for some people.

I also help people who are suffering with bereavement and loss.

Learn to control those excess worries that could be costing you:

  • your relationships
  • your job
  • those opportunities to develop your potential in life and feel better

Fancy a free, no obligation chat first?

Call me in confidence and find out how I can help you. You can come and see me in my offices in Bournemouth or we can just chat on the phone before you make a decision to use my services.

I offer face to face and in some cases online counselling via webcam (Vsee/ Skype). Day/ evening and some Saturday appointments at no extra charge. Telephone  appointments are also sometimes possible. Do something today. Why struggle any longer.

Contact me today and find out how you could feel so much better.

Counselling for Individuals or Couples.

Feel so much better by sharing the problem and making some changes in your life.

Just like you I once had to go to see a counsellor for a stress-related issue. It was difficult to make that decision but once I did I only needed to see her for a few sessions and I felt so much better. Just talking to a caring professional person helped me to realise that I had a choice to feel miserable or to change something.

In my offices I see clients from Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, West Moors, Ferndown, Wimborne, Parley and surrounding areas. I also provide an online service via webcam (Vsee) and telephone counselling service for some clients who are based anywhere else in the UK.

So if you would like help to find solutions to a problem or you would just like to find ways to feel better and get on with your life contact me.

I help adults with stress and anxiety, relationship problems, lacking in confidence, family issues, work-related problems, fears, phobias, bereavement and other losses, performance issues such as public speaking, exam stress, driving nerves, and much more.

I also help a lot of people with problems related to work such as worries about changing career, bullying at work, and coping with increased demands.

As life has lots of pressures I assist you to learn easy coping strategies so you can deal better with things in the future.

Why choose me?

  • You get a professional and confidential service that has already helped many people like you
  • Individual or couples counselling offered
  • You can speak to me first and find out more at a free initial consultation
  • Easy access.
  • Convenient appointments during the day or evening at no extra charge.
