About Us


Welcome to Swans Therapy

We have been running our successful private practice in the lovely leafy and quite area of Queens Park, Bournemouth, Dorset since 2008.

We actually trained together to become professional counsellors, hypnotherapists, coaches and therapists. Which was been a really interesting experience and journey together!! Previous to this we have both had varied career experiences, businesses, worked in education and the public services. You can read more about this and our qualifications on our own individually named pages: Joy Wood and John Sackett.

We feel that our age and stage in life, with our personal life experiences and knowledge are an asset, and enable us to offer you a wide range of services.

We are very passionate about the work we do and consider it to be an honour to be of service to you.

At Swans Therapy we pride ourselves in giving you the best service possible which is completely suited to your own individual needs, confidential, professional and friendly service.



Our integrated counselling & psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and coaching approach to treatment using a variety of counselling models and techniques, will enable you to overcome any issues, distress or difficulties you are presently experiencing, to regain control of your life, become more relaxed, confident and happy, really looking forward to your future.


Among others these counselling models and techniques are:

  • Humanistic Person Centred Therapy
  • Psychoanalysis
  • BT -Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • TA – Transactional Analysis
  • Gestalt
  • Psychoanalysis
  • Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • NLP techniques
  • EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques
  • Personal Coaching
  • Couple Counselling and Coaching

At Swans Therapy we have found that a combination of treatments can be very effective. For example we may suggest a hypnotherapy session to help with a counselling issue or a counselling session to get to the root of a hypnotherapy issue giving us a wide platform of skills to help you to reach a successful resolution.


We hope you will let us help you to transform your life!
