As an integrative therapist and mind coach, I practice a number of disciplines.

Hello and welcome to my website, my name is Nigel Murray. I am a qualified Therapist offering effective interventions for Counselling in Bournemouth and Christchurch areas: closing the gap from where you are now to where you want to be.

I believe we can all own a wealth of life experience; I, as with the majority of us from time to time have made mistakes, but more importantly and hopefully learned from them, as I have from my own life challenges. This has been while serving in the armed forces,  living and working in Europe & Africa, whilst working in the mechanical and aerospace engineering environment, in a ‘hands on’ practical, as well as managerial roles.

I returned to the UK in 1990 as a married man, we settled on the beautiful south coast of England in Christchurch, near Bournemouth to start our family, and being blessed with 2 sons and a daughter. During this time in 2003 I began my therapeutic profession as a counsellor after I worked on some difficult life issues I had had. I had spent 4 years studying, which enabled me to start Counselling in Bournemouth / Christchurch areas, I have never felt a desire as deep as I do for a profession, I am inspired to support you, promoting well-being from within, this drives me to develop continuously whilst working alongside every individual I sit with. You will be supported to find your own way of empowering yourself to gain control in your own life choices.

If you or someone close to you would like to know more I would love to hear from you. Give me a call or email and I can answer any questions you may have.


My qualifications include: Diploma in Hypnotherapy; Advanced Diploma in therapeutic interventions. I am an accredited member of the National Hypnotherapy Society as well as being an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and listed on the accredited register of the Professional Standards Authority for both.

I am also an Acupressure / EFT Certified Practitioner

By EFT International (the International recognised regulatory body)
