Life can be difficult, whether you find yourself in the depths of despair or something just doesnÕt feel right, I believe anyone can benefit from having time and space where you can be listened to with compassion, in confidence and without judgement. I work with both individuals and couples.IndividualsI have worked with individuals who are suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, low self-esteem, loneliness or perhaps just a vague sense that something isn’t right. Issues or relationships from the past that you can’t seem to escape, or perhaps an recent encounter that you can’t stop turning over in your mind.CouplesAnd with couples who feel they no longer can communicate, who watch helplessly as small issues explode into destructive rows. Or perhaps one partner has had an affair and you can’t seem to get past it. My approach understands the importance of communication and of valuing your partner however it also accepts and explores the pressures that can exist within relationships. Time constraints, finance, demands of children and of work, the stress of being in conflict, these are all forces that can easily over-whelm any couple.Research has shown that the relationship is key to any therapeutic process. And compassion is the bedrock of any relationship. I have a professional, welcoming space, in the centre of Bournemouth where you can feel free to talk, and feel like the counsellor is listening. And together, using both humanistic and CBT approaches, we can get to the heart of the matter and get you where you want to be.I offer a reduced fee first session of £30 for individuals and £45 for couples.Ê Subsequent sessions fees are £50 for individuals and £60 for couples. If you are unable to afford these fees I also run a low-cost counselling service, Connect Counselling. Visit the website www.connectcounselling.info for more information.
