During the current outbreak of Coronavirus I shall only be able to offer online counselling and in order to try to be available to more people I have reduced my fee to £25 per session.



My name is Ally and welcome to barefeet counselling.

I am an experienced and welcoming counsellor offering counselling to adults and young people in Ringwood, Christchurch and Lyndhurst.  

I am also registered member of  BACP - British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and HACP - Hampshire Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.


Making the decision to come to counselling and choosing a counsellor can be a daunting and difficult process. Please take time to look at the pages of how I work and about me to help you in that process and I hope this will encourage you to take that first step to contact me. You will be welcome.


I offer the opportunity to work with a specific issue over a short time (6 weeks) or longer for more in depth work - the choice is always yours.


I can offer appointments in Ringwood at Ringwood Health Clinic, Wessex Health, Christchurch and at  Lyndhurst, Fenwick SCA Health and Well Being Centre. All offer easy and accessible parking. 

Clients have come with issues that are many and varied some of which I have listed here, but this list is, of course, not complete as how each of us respond to our life experiences and the people around us can be equally varied.






Family dynamics

Anger management



Carer support

Postnatal depression


Work related stress

Low confidence/esteem
