During the course of our work together, we may also draw on other tools from technique-based approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness based therapies such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavioural therapy skills work ( DBT ).
Hi there, I'm a chartered counselling psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have over 15 years experience across the NHS and private sectors and practice various therapeutic models. I would describe my approach as integrative, which means I would tailor my work with you based on your individual needs. My approach is rooted in Existential therapy, which aims to help you to make choices that enable you to live more authentically. Together we’ll explore your lived experience and make sense of the paradoxes, conflicts and dilemmas you may be facing.

You are not broken. You may be experiencing emotional injury, and/or psychological distress, but this does not communicate brokenness. On the contrary, this communicates an emotional BUILD. You might be struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, women's issues, trauma, grief, loss, low self-esteem, low self-worth, etc. It may even be likely that you have learned how to live in a way that attempts to guard you from any additional emotional injuries. Essentially, your life experiential may have taught you how to build a wall of emotional defense, but that is not your truest self

I enjoy working with young people and adults alike. I have been told by past clients that I am open, honest and friendly, which are qualities that all clients have valued. I like to problem solve and am a very logical and practical person. Having lived in several different countries, I have developed a good understanding of a range of issues for people from different cultures and backgrounds. I like to ask questions and truly get to know someone and never assume to know better.

I enjoy working with people with a diverse range of issues and am able to draw on knowledge and skills from multiple areas of psychological knowledge and expertise to explore, understand and bring about change to each individual’s particular areas of concern. A ‘formulation’ is a shared understanding of your unique strengths and difficulties which includes an understanding of your early experiences and how these might be impacting on your life now. Working together early on in therapy to create a shared formulation is vital, as it can help us to clearly see where the main issues are and how they might begin to be be remedied.

Dialectical (DBT) Counsellors
If you're looking to find dialectical behaviour counselling in Bournemouth or for a Bournemouth DBT psychologist, you can find Bournemouth dialectical behaviour therapists who use DBT therapy to provide clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.

What is DBT Counselling?
DBT was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder. However, research shows that DBT therapy in Bournemouth has also been used successfully to treat people experiencing depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse. DBT skills are thought to have the capability of helping those who wish to improve their ability to regulate emotions, tolerate distress and negative emotion, be mindful and present in the given moment, and communicate and interact effectively with others.

How do I find a Bournemouth DBT therapist?
DBT assumes that effective treatment must pay as much attention to the behavior and experience of providers working with clients as it does to clients’ behavior and experience. Thus, treatment of the providers is an important part of any Bournemouth DBT counselling program, and therapists should practice the skills themselves. They need to know basic behavior therapy techniques and DBT treatment strategies. Look for a Bournemouth DBT counsellor or therapist with specialized training and experience in DBT.

Who are the best Bournemouth DBT Psychologists?
The best DBT treatment typically consists of individual therapy sessions and DBT skills groups. Find the best DBT therapists in Bournemouth who offer individual therapy sessions, ensuring that all therapeutic needs are being addressed. The best DBT counsellors in Bournemouth will help the patient stay motivated, apply the DBT skills within daily life, and address obstacles that might arise over the course of treatment.
