About me

Do you feel like you are struggling but can't find a way to put it into words? Are you wondering whether enough is enough? Are you worried about your child or teenager and think that they need help?

Being able to speak to some one confidentially can give you the space to increase your self-awareness and understand more about yourself. Talk therapy can be guidance for when you are feeling down during difficult times in your life and it can also be a source of direction for when you are going through change.

My counselling services can address Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Self-esteem, Relationships (sibling reconciliation), Motivation for Change, Addiction, Problems with Drugs and Alcohol and Eating Disorders. Counselling can also help those that need a boost during a period of change to help them develop professionally or personally. Information and advice sessions can be arranged for parents who would like some guidance around helping their children cope or overcome their issues.

Whether you want to let go of your past or piece together your future - attending counselling, that is non-judgemental, will allow you to explore your inner thoughts and give you a chance to hear yourself say them out loud. Within a safe therapeutic environment you will learn how to build the confidence to express yourself and empower yourself to make positive change possible.

I have strong moral values and an altruistic attitude. I am a respected and valued professional. I am a committed and skilled individual that brings a sharp mind and caring attitude to the profession. I am a reflective counsellor and I place each individual at the core of my process.

Training, qualifications & experience

BACP Registered Counsellor
FDAP Accredited Counsellor
BSc (Hons) Addictions Counselling
Masters Certificate in Childhood Eating Disorders and Obesity
BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition

I run my own well-being business which offers professional counselling services and expert nutritional advice. I believe that a combined effort to take care of one’s mental well-being and physical well-being is essential to living a balanced lifestyle.

I am an experienced therapist and hold my own professional indemnity insurance. My range of therapeutic services are offered in, and around, Bournemouth and the rest of Dorset.

Over the past eight years, I have worked in the public sector exploring health and illness in society and learned about social influence on human health. I am an experienced counsellor and have spent the last five years working in the field of addiction.

Through out my career I have worked with young children who were picky eaters, adolescents and adults with eating disorders, as well as elderly people. Becoming more experienced in the field, my interests directed me into expanding my therapeutic capacity into both a nutritionist and a counsellor.

I have worked in international treatment centres inside and outside of the UK where I was able to gain experience with both adults and young people with a variety of process addictions and mental health issues. Recently I have worked as a counsellor with adults in a local charity that helped people suffering with drug and alcohol addiction. Towards the end of 2014, I made a change and started working as a counsellor in schools where I see teenagers. Alongside this I have began to develop my own private practice where I counsell adults and teenagers.

I am an accredited member of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) and an registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means that I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling.

I continually invest in my professional development and have received the following qualifications:

Prevent Training 2016; Abuse within Teenage Relationships Training 2016; Common Assessment Framework (CAF) 2016; Child Sexual Exploitation Level 3 2015; Domestic Violence Level 1; Risk Management 2015; Information Governance 2015; Challenging Behaviour 2015; Safeguarding Adults Awareness 2014; Mental Capacity Act, The Legislation 2014; The Legal Highs Phenomenon 2014; Recording Skills and Report Writing Adult Services 2013; Safeguarding Children Level 3 2013; Health and Safety 2013; Childhood Eating Disorders and Obesity 2011; Emotional Freedom Technique Level 1 2011.
