AOT Counselling

Counselling & Psychotherapy in Dorset

Home: Welcome
Rock Balancing

Hi, I'm Anthony, an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in Dorset. I'm a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy); currently offering face to face, video, telephone and walk and talk therapy.

I offer warm, confidential and non-judgemental therapy, where you can be comfortable in the knowledge that what you share will be treated in the greatest confidence. 

I hold a BA(Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy, professional indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS check.

What to expect

I offer a free telephone consultation of up to 30 minutes, where we can discuss what you're looking for, whether that's short or long-term therapy, stabilising and improving the present, or unpacking the past; we can plan ahead, or let the process unfold naturally. The most important thing is to ensure we're a good fit, as therapeutic process is a partnership, one in which we can explore together, helping you to understand the patterns of thoughts and behaviours standing in the way of you leading a more balanced, more fulfilling life.

I work within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) who provide guidelines designed to ensure your needs are always the greatest priority – details are available on their website here.
