Life events, traumatic experience, loss and bereavement can result in feelings of anxiety, stress or depression. Any of these can lead to difficulties in your personal relationships or prevent you from living life to the full. It maybe that you have a sense of something not feeling quite right in your life without being able to pin that on anything in particular.

Perhaps you have struggled with issues that have their origin many years ago and you feel it is now time to talk about them or that recent unexpected life changes have left you feeling overwhelmed.

Counselling can provide you with space to take some time-out to explore your thoughts and feelings about these matters. As you are reading this you have already taken the first courageous step towards bringing about change.

After over 21 years of counselling experience in the South East, I have been counselling in Dorset since 2016 with therapy rooms in Poundbury, Dorchester and in the Weymouth area as well as providing counselling online or by telephone. As a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non judgmental environment, working in accordance with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's 'Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions'.

Additionally, I have taught Integrative Counselling up to degree level 6 over a period of 7 years, most recently teaching Counselling and Supervision at The Iron Mill College. I welcome trainee counsellors seeking therapy as part of their training and personal development.
