Are you looking for quality therapy? Not all therapy is the same which is why I pride myself in offering a therapy that is a cut above the rest. I offer a free 30min consultation so that you can experience this personally and decide for yourself. If you like learning through (1) understanding the science and (2) stories and analogies then this is the therapy for you.

Are you feeling lost, confused, not sure who to turn to? Perhaps as a mum you feel overwhelmed & tell everyone you're fine while burying down the wave of emotions you're battling to manage inside. Do you feel ashamed, alone and that no one will understand how you feel. Perhaps the pressure of working or running a business & managing day to day demands of a household feel too much right now. I have experience of helping many mums understand and improve their emotional wellbeing , deal with trauma and start to heal themselves so they can feel more in control and feel happier life in all areas of their life.

Life can present us with unwelcome events at any age. Professional counselling can't change these events but can provide tools and techniques to help minimise their impact. In my practise, counselling is primarily about the relationship between you and me. It is a talking therapy where we can explore what is troubling you in a safe, non-judgemental setting. Every person is an individual and therefore counselling can be different for everyone. I am more relationship driven rather than theory driven.

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. My clients are always the experts in their lives and I see myself as a guide to help them navigate to a calmer place.

There are times when many of us feel we could benefit from emotional support and although making that first step to see a counsellor can seem enormous, it is a really positive step as talking in confidence to a professional counsellor can help bring clarity and healing and give you much needed support during a painful or anxious time. Counselling can help you make sense of your emotions and responses and empower you to make changes in your life. It facilitates the freedom to talk openly and confidentially, in a place where you will be really listened to.

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.

We all go through life experiencing good and bad moments, but sometimes the bad experiences can become too overwhelming to manage them on our own. Sometimes they may be a result of sudden changes which life throws at us unexpectedly leaving us vulnerable and lost in a new reality and sometimes it may be that we want to change something in our lives, but don’t really know how, which leaves us feeling stuck and helpless. If this sounds familiar to how you feel why not try counselling? Talking to someone you can trust who can listen without any judgement can be very helpful especially in these challenging times.

I have a special interest of helping adults who have unhelpful coping strategies that keep them stuck, such as eating too much; drinking too much; withdrawing into themselves; and/or working harder to activate perfectionist & self-destructive behaviours. Perhaps you're questioning who you are as you struggle with such feelings & question if you'll ever feel better? Perhaps you struggle to find the right words to talk about how you're feeling, & shut down if others ask how you are? You don't know where else to turn, try to struggle on, & feel afraid of what may happen if you're not okay. You are exhausted and want things to change.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Ferndown?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Ferndown 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.
