About me

I am a Therapeutic Counsellor based in Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole. I'm also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). 

Therapeutic counselling can support anyone who is experiencing psychological turmoil or emotional difficulties. It may be that your usual ways of coping with adversity are not working and you would like to seek alternative, more effective ways of behaving or responding, you might already know what is wrong in your life or simply feel that something isn't right. 

As an adult or a young person, counselling gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts and worries with someone who does not judge, respects your confidences and who will not impose their views upon you. It offers a safe place to express your feelings and explore problems.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as private practice, I work with children and young people aged 11 and upwards in school settings, both privately and with The Listening Ear. I have also taken part in volunteer work with the YMCA.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
