About me

I am an accredited psychodynamic counsellor/psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist and a registered member of the government voluntary register qualified to Masters level.

I work in a sensitive manner that is tailored to meet individual need using a range of therapeutic approaches offering both short and long term work. My aim is to provide a welcoming professional service to the practice which is based in Tiptree and offers a private comfortable space for individuals, couples, families and trainees to safely explore a broad range of difficulties. I have a wide range of experience working with adults, adolescents, children and couples on a wide range of difficulties that include:

    * Anxiety
    * Depression
    * Relationship difficulties
    * Trauma
    * Abuse
    * Loss and separation
    * Bereavement
    * Mental Health disorders
    * Employment issues


Parents and Carers:
For parents/carers with children I also offer Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) which is attachment based relationship therapy developed by Dr Dan Hughes that is particularly effective when working with parents/carers who are experiencing relationship difficulties within their families. Work with children and adolescents is tailored to their need and shaped by current developmental stage, this can include play and art based approaches.

Trainees Counselling and Supervision:
Alongside the above services I provide counselling and supervision for both trainee and qualified counsellors and education staff in accordance with the BACP guidelines.

Appointments:
Appointments are available during the day and in the evening. Weekends are by prior agreement.
