First Steps

Starting Therapy...

Any Questions?

What you can expect following your enquiry

The First Step

Following your enquiry you may wish to book an introductory session. Please talk to me about any concerns  you may have around starting therapy or how it works.


Well appointed comfortable rooms offer the ideal safe environment for healing, reflection and support. 

Choose from  conveniently situated locations in either Poole or Christchurch.

Introductory Session

This is a chance for you to assess if I am the right therapist  for you, and an opportunity for me to understand  what you are looking for. 

Please allow up to 50 minutes. 

Therapeutic Healing 

The core of our work together will centre around you, and on strengthening and healing your relationship with yourself.

Reviews will be offered to ensure your expectations and goals are being met or worked towards, and  for any adjustments made to  improve therapeutic progress.

Ending your Therapy Safely

Whether your therapy is 'Open-Ended' or 'Time-Limited', an appropriate ending  will be pre-negotiated or collaboratively  worked towards, ensuring  client safety is paramount and adhered to, in  accordance with The BACP Ethical Framework Code of Conduct, and Standards.

"Probably‚Äč the most important factor in choosing a counsellor is to see someone you feel comfortable with, and can trust. Please talk to me about any concerns you may have about starting therapy, how it works, or my background and approach to therapeutic work.

Gaining an understanding of what to expect in therapy will likely help reduce any anxiety."
