I aim to provide a safe space for individuals, couples , and young people where anxieties can be talked through, free from any sense of judgement. Every effort will be made to establish a trusting relationship with you. I will seek to understand your situation and help you to explore the way you feel about yourself and your concerns as well as your hopes and desires. The counselling relationship can help you to become aware of patterns in behaviour that have developed in your life and reveal how those past experiences may still affect you now. Working this through in therapy can give you greater choice in the way you live.

I work with couples and individuals on a wide range of issues drawing on a range of approaches including CBT, Person Centred, Emotion Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Life Skills Coaching methods.
It can be a great relief to be able to share your worries and stress with someone. We all struggle at times and as much as we would like to talk to our friends or family we feel unable to let them in. Sometimes we feel stuck, alone and not able to find the solution to the problem that's making us unhappy. Being able to talk openly with someone who can support you, without judgement, as you explore your feelings and the circumstances that are causing you stress can make a big difference. You will start to feel in control, see things more clearly and feel more confident to make the changes you want to in your life.

I have in-depth knowledge of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and I work with people who have a parent or a partner with NPD.
Many of us have the feeling that something is wrong but are not sure what it is or we know our life could be better. This can be because we are out of touch with our true self. One reason for this is that we learn to defend ourselves from the world at a very young age. Those defences become ingrained and we think they are part of our personality. We may often dismiss our defences as ‘that’s just me.’ For some people who have had trauma, those defences can become debilitating in the form of an addiction or a panic disorder. Working through our issues can help our defences to 'stand down' as we become more comfortable in our own skin.

Working in independent practice, for fourteen years, I work with individuals and couples who are looking to overcome stuckness, identify unmet needs, and recognise thought patterns that may be holding them back, or resulting in unhelpful relational behaviours. The aim is to help you gain insight, heighten self awareness and develop a less self critical view of yourself. As well as problem solving, the approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.

I imagine that whatever has happened to bring you here involves suffering. Whilst therapy can help to consolidate on successes and open up an even brighter future, most of us seek therapy because of a painful sense that all is not well. Whether it is a traumatic life event that brings you here, or difficult experiences from the past that continue to intrude on your present and future; current relationship difficulties or simply a nagging feeling of anxiety or depression, I can really understand your struggles and hope I can help you reconnect to what you love the most, and what can give your life the greatest purpose and meaning.

I work psychodynamically, which means when we work together we look at what’s going on for you at the moment and what's gone on in your past. We look at your relationships with others and your relationship with yourself, and by doing this you can gain insight and understanding to the reasons for current problems and work towards increasing your capacity to cope with difficulties...current and future. Working this way can help to unravel some of the more deep-rooted feelings that aren't always in our conscious awareness, and in turn, help to resolve them.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Bournemouth are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Bournemouth then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Bournemouth, or Child Psychologists in Bournemouth.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Bournemouth psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Bournemouth specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
