About

I am an empathic, approachable and experienced (5yrs) Humanistic Integrative LGBTQ affirmative counsellor. I also integrate CBT into my practice particularly when working with anxiety. I have facilitated numerous Wellbeing Support Groups for Dorset Mind including 2 LGBTQ peer-support talking groups and an anxiety support group. My private practice was based at Over the Rainbow Sexual Health Clinic in Bournemouth for 5 years where I have had the privilege of working with a variety of LGBTQ people experiencing numerous Wellbeing Challenges including:Post Traumatic Injury, OCD, Depression, Social Anxiety and Emotionally Unstable PD.
I have worked with people who have experienced trauma and dissociation. Many people, including LGBTQ people, struggle to identify, connect with, explore and express deep-seated emotions due to feeling or being made to feel different or unacceptable by society, family or friends. I help people to recognise that their feelings and experiences are not unusual.
I can offer a free initial assessment to meet and discuss what has prompted you to consider having counselling and to see whether you feel comfortable having me. I provide a holistic, sensitive confidential and safe space, free from judgement and shame so people feel able to connect with their deepest truest selves and find new, helpful ways of coping.
