Offering psychological therapy close to Poole and Bournemouth, Dorset.

Psychotherapy, Counselling, EMDR & Clinical Supervision

I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Transactional Analyst and EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner offering psychotherapy, counselling and clinical supervision in a confidential, non-judgemental environment. Having lived in different countries throughout my life, I am sensitive to cultural and religious difference as well as issues relating to change and adjustment. I am deeply committed to an ethical and non-discriminatory practice with my clients and abide by the principles and ethics of both the UKCP and BACP.

My Approach
We will work collaboratively for an agreed period of time to explore what you are struggling with and identify ways in which you can enhance your life. I offer brief solution focused counselling for clients requiring targeted support or longer term psychotherapy for those wishing to explore issues in greater depth. Depending on your expectations and presenting issue, I will draw on a variety of approaches to achieving your personal goal for change and growth. Over the course of therapy, we will regularly review the effectiveness of our work together to ensure that progress is being made.

My practice
I am based in Lilliput, close to Poole, Bournemouth, Wimborne and surrounding areas in Dorset. I offer therapy online or in person depending on your requirements. If you prefer face to face sessions, I implement COVID safety guidelines.

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Developmental & Complex Trauma
  • Anxiety and Depression

    Being bilingual, I can offer counselling or psychotherapy in German.

    Whether you decide to embark on psychotherapy, counselling or EMDR, it is important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable. I hope my website gives you a sense of who I am and how I work.
