Bournemouth Psychotherapist & Counsellor

About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I have over 10 years experience in agencies, organisations, and private practice.

Why Come For Counselling & Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy and Counselling can change your life. Talking to someone independent can really help you work out what’s wrong and what you can do about it. I give you the time and space to look at your situation objectively in a more helpful way.

The Benefits Of Counselling & Psychotherapy Can Include:

  • Relieving your isolation by sharing your thoughts, feelings and worries in a safe place.
  • Improving your relationship with yourself and others by getting to know yourself better.
  • Increasing your self-esteem by accepting yourself and feeling confident to make choices which will improve your day to day life and well-being.

Who Is Counselling & Psychotherapy For?

I work with individuals over 18 and offer psychotherapy and counselling for issues such as:

Anxiety, Depression, Relationships, Self-esteem, Divorce and separation, Loss and grief, Loneliness, Abuse, Work-related stress, Family and parenting difficulties

My practice is based in Southbourne, Bournemouth. We meet in a comfortable private room and there is nearby parking. Southbourne is easily accessed from Bournemouth, Christchurch, Ringwood, Highcliffe, New Milton, Poole, and surrounding areas.
