Hello my name is Hazel and I am a skilled and very experienced counsellor who hasÊ been practisingÊ in West Dorset for eleven years. I provide safe, effective, professional support on a 1:1 basis for a whole range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationships – both personal and work related, self esteem, family issues, stress, anger management, abuse and trauma( and many others too).ÊMy clients find me friendly, easy to talk to, non judgmental and empathic. I work both with adults of all ages and with young people.I am a humanistic integrative counsellor which means I work with you to provide a ‘bespoke’ service which will best promote your wellbeing and support you to make changes. I provide a strong therapeutic relationship to empower you to make lasting changes.ÊI offer long and short term work depending on your particular needs and appointments are available during the day or in the evening.ÊMy premises are located very conveniently and discretely between Weymouth and Dorchester and there is lots of easy parking! As well as my private practice I have worked for 9 years as a volunteer counsellor for a local charity and have extensive experience working as a schools counsellor.I also deliver training courses to adults on counselling and mental health and have a particular interest in supporting trainees. I originally trained as a counsellor to further support my previous career as a specialist dyslexia teacher of young people and I have a good working knowledge of a range of learning difficulties.I am happy to offer a free 30 minute introductory session to new clients to discuss how counselling works , how I may be able to help and to answer any questions and queries.
