Monica Moroney, (MBACP) Dip in Therapeutic Counselling, Dip CBT
Hi, I'm Monica. I offer a free no obligation initial consultation to enable you to make a well informed decision about therapy. This is to assess your presenting issues and to go over the boundaries and function of counselling. It is important that you feel safe and able to work with me in order to begin a commitment to therapy.
Through my counselling experience, I have been able to work with young adults and adults facing life's struggles, such as; depression, anxiety, low self- esteem, emotional and physical pain caused by traumatic events, bereavement, loss and the stresses of day to day life.
I provide an integrative humanistic counselling approach. This means that your needs are at the forefront of our work together, and I will adapt my approach to benefit you. I offer a safe space for you to talk openly in confidence and without judgement. I will always treat you with respect, care and dignity.
My private practice in Bournemouth, enables me to work with a range of clients in a very personalised way, drawing on years of NHS and crisis agency experience.
I am a professionally trained and qualified counsellor and registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), 374222, offering short term and long term, one to one talking therapy in the Bournemouth area.
Life is very much an up-and-down hill journey with bumpy rides that we just don’t foresee. Clients that I work with often feel that life is getting on top of them – they are not living the life they want. I am here to provide a safe, confidential and creative environment in which we work together to open the door to new beginnings.
I apply my training to work alongside you to help you find solutions to your issues and achieve your goals for counselling.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
