About me

My career started in the 70’s working with children and families in Social Work, and progressed into work in the Court arena with  both offenders and separating families in conflict. In  2002 I started working  for Relate  and trained as a Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist. I have been running a private practice since 2007 and now exclusively work in that practice in Dorset.

My approach is eclectic with a leaning towards Behaviourism , Solution Focussed work and Brief Therapy techniques. I look to offer clients a very sensitive supportive approach aiming for self determination and opportunity for personal growth.
