Zoe Karaviotis BA (Hons) MBACP
My name is Zoe and I am a fully qualified and insured professional Person-centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am based in Weymouth working in Dorset. I also hold a current DBS certificate.
I have previously worked as a counsellor within the NHS in Dorset and also with Somerset Partnership NHS. I also worked with a Dorset charity specialising in working with adult survivors of childhood abuse and have experience of working with a wide range of individuals and issues, from a variety of different backgrounds.
I am able to work with clients who are D/deaf or hard of hearing (can use BSL) autistic, Aspergers, have learning difficulties or who have disabilities/abilities, mobility or medical issues. I am able to adapt my work to suit individual needs.
I offer long term or shorter term work and flexible contracts to meet clients needs and am happy to work with local companies, health care services and employment assisted programmes.
I value individuality, difference, honesty and integrity. I respect you finding your own path, being entirely yourself and building trust and connection with you. I believe in the right therapeutic environment people can be empowered to find their own answers when they feel ready and in their own time.
