BACP accreditied counsellor and psychotherapist in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch
COVID-19 update: I am currently seeing people via Zoom only. I will review this as the numbers of people infected with COVID changes.
Hello, my name is Annemieke and I work as a qualified counsellor and a psychotherapist in advanced training in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area, helping people with a variety of issues.
It can be difficult to admit we need help to cope with our emotions. But just as we go to our GP for help with our physical ailments, people are increasingly turning to a psychotherapist or counsellor to help them understand their emotions, cope with stress, anxiety, depression and difficult life events such as bereavement or relationship difficulties.
Some people experience traumatic events such as abuse, rape and accidents as adults or children.
Others have mental health problems including addictions.
And some people are interested in understanding more about themselves and improving their self-awareness.
Whatever it is that has led you to seek help, I can provide a safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore your experiences and make sense of your thoughts and feelings, with a view to opening up opportunities for change in the future, a future with increased self-awareness.
I practice using a particular type of psychotherapy called Transactional Analysis. One of the basic concepts used in Transactional Analysis is Drivers. These are ways we have learned to behave in the world in order to feel safe or OK. Can you identify with any of the following 5 drivers?

My counselling and psychotherapy practice is situated in Bournemouth, in the Ensbury Park area, within easy reach of Bournemouth University and Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch town centres.
