About Me

Dionne is an experienced Counsellor, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Hypnotherapist who currently runs a Professional Counselling Service in Bolton. Dionne has many years of experience working with children, young people, adults and couples, working in a variety of setting including – NHS, G.P. referrals, schools and teenage counselling services. "I work with vulnerable people in demanding & difficult circumstances. I strongly believe in helping people to develop awareness and coping strategies to help them to deal with demanding and challenging events".

Counselling can help young people/teenagers , to understand and reduce anxiety caused by the massive changes in their lives as they return to school and college.

Adults: Counselling is helpful for adults in treating many issues such as: relationship issues, general anxiety disorder, depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, eating disorders, anger management and many more. it is also very helpful in treating trauma and phobias .If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me on 07711835576.

Relationship issues: A relationship can be siblings, parent and child or mum and dad and lack of communication can be a major problem in relationships, with individual’s mind reading and presuming they know what other family members are thinking and feeling. Not being able to express or talk about thoughts and feelings may create pressure on the relationships within families.

Couples: I work closely with couples helping them to look at and discuss problems occurring in adult relationships. The relationship, rather than the two individuals, is the 'client'. Pressures in our lives, work, money family and health all add to the strain. All of a sudden the relationship that once re-energised us leaves us exhausted and disappointed.

I have monthly supervision and I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am an integrative therapist and use whichever approach is most beneficial to my clients.

Please call 07711 835576 if you have any concerns or questions about counselling children.


Types of trauma include fear of flying, psychological bullying, physical and sexual assaults including rape and sexual abuse, car accidents, muggings/assaults, the witnessing of critical incidents, being trapped in lifts. The actual phobia or trauma does not have to be discussed, thus allowing the trauma to be treated both quickly and reliably, with a minimum level of distress to sufferers.

Hypnotherapy attempts to address an individual's subconscious mind, using the power of suggestion for beneficial change. A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis to give appropriate, positive suggestions to help an individual bring about the change they desire. Although hypnotherapy is not the same as sleep (the individual will still be in control and be aware of their surroundings), hypnotherapists often require the individual to be in a deeply relaxed state to enable them to use their imagination fully. It is therefore essential that the individual feels totally comfortable with their hypnotherapist.

Bridge House offers counselling in a confidential setting which is within easy access of Bolton Town centre, just off Chorley New Road (opposite Bolton School). Free parking. Evening and weekend appointments are available.

Dionne has worked with children, young people and adults for many many years at a number of organisations. Dionne currently works at various primary schools working with young children using play therapy and also as a private therapist and hypnotherapist at Bridge House.
