Welcome. Steve Barker Counselling and Therapy Avatar MEDIUM

Unlike most Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I also draw on a range of highly-effective, clinically-proven approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) so we can get your life back on track fast. If you live in Bournemouth, Poole, Wimborne or Ferndown we can easily work together in person. If you live further away, or if you would prefer, we can work together over the 'phone or via online therapy through Skype, Zoom or video messenger services

Many of us go through times when we just need that extra help to get us through. Sometimes life throws us new challenges that we struggle with, or sometimes things from the past affect our happiness and well-being today. This where a skilled Counsellor or Psychotherapist can help.

Many of us suffer for years with abuse, phobias, stress, anxiety or heartache. The loss of a loved one, divorce or the breakup of a relationship. Some of us suffer seemingly irrational panic attacks or develop self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour. Others have to contend with chronic pain, serious illness or live with unhealthy, life-threatening habits like smoking, alcoholism or drug addiction.

Before we know it we become tired, feel the effects of stress and anxiety and many leave it almost too late to do something.

In coming here, you have taken the first step toward taking control of your life and together we can make you feel better - fast.

If you live in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch or Wimborne and are looking to work in person email me now to arrange your FREE initial personal consultation. If you live elsewhere or cannot get in to see me,we can work effectively via telephone or video calling; over half of my clients access my services this way now.


Counselling allows you to share your concerns in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. You can explore your thoughts and feelings to better help you gain perspective, understanding and comfort. Counselling is about giving you the opportunity to express yourself without advice or opinion - because sometimes we just need to be heard. Talking about it all will help, and if the matter is too difficult to talk about directly I can work with you context-free.


Some clients seek a deeper insight of their thought processes - or those of others they have to deal with. Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are excellent tools to help us realise why we respond in certain ways and give us strategies to cope and manage our lives more effectively. The Humanistic, person-centred psychotherapy I practice is about giving you understanding and tools to help you move your life on towards balance, success and happiness.


Increasingly, many clients seek more rapid and dynamic approaches to turn their lives around.
Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Mindscaping deliver more immediate results to transform your life dramatically and permanently. The results are far more immediate than counselling or psychotherapy because we access your unconscious thought processes directly to help you fell better - fast.

As your Integrative Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist I am uniquely placed to deliver more effective solutions because they are tailored to your individual needs.
