About me

Making that first step to contact a counsellor can be daunting. However, it can also be the first step towards liberation from issues that are holding you back in life.

Working in independent practice, since 2006, I am a BACP Accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist.

The aim is to help you gain insight, and heighten self awareness. As well as problem solving, my approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.

I will provide the time to talk about the things in your life, that don't make sense, or are making you feel sad or afraid. Therapy provides important space to review your situation, and how you live and experience your life.

I am encouraging, and sensitive, to your experience of the therapy relationship, and work at your pace. Whether as an individual, or couple, of any age, gender or sexuality, I will help you regulate, and manage difficult emotions as and when they arise.

I offer early morning, day time and evening appointments. and also work with clients on Skype.

I work from my home in Branksome Park, Poole

I am registered to take referrals from Aviva, AXA, and Vitality Health
