Welcome, my name is Jacqueline Hendy and I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor with over 23 years of experience located just outside Bournemouth in Dorset.

If you’re thinking about finding some counselling for yourself or someone close to you, you’ve come to the right place. Often it can be helpful to talk in confidence to somebody other than family or friends.

What I Offer

I am able to offer my clients the experience that I have gained from 23 years in practice as a Therapist working in both the public and private sector.   I work from an Integrative approach which means that I can draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) if appropriate, this enables me to engage with my clients in a way that will be most effective and will best suit their individual needs.

I prefer to work face-to-face, and offer short term and long term work.
