About Me

Hello and welcome. I am Monica, a professionally trained and qualified counsellor and registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), offering short term and long term, one to one talking therapy in the Bournemouth area. I’m passionate about my work and the benefits of counselling. I offer an integrative humanistic counselling approach. This means that your needs are at the forefront of our work together, and I will adapt my approach to benefit you. I offer a safe space for you to talk openly in confidence and without judgement. I will always treat you with respect, care and dignity. Life is very much an up-and-down hill journey with bumpy rides that we just don’t foresee. Clients that I work with often feel that life is getting on top of them – they are not living the life they want. I am here to provide a safe, confidential and creative environment in which we work together to open the door to new beginnings. I apply my training and expertise to work alongside you to help you find solutions to your issues and achieve your goals for counselling.
