Christine Nutt UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor
Southend On Sea
If you think you may need counselling or psychotherapy, you are not alone. At times we are all faced with confusing or painful situations, feelings of dissatisfaction, anxiety, stress or depression, painful losses, traumatic or unhappy memories, difficult decisions or the need for change. I can help you to explore your difficulties and provide you with the support you need to find your own answers.
Everyone has the capacity to cope with crisis, resolve problems, develop personal insight and make decisions, but having support and encouragement when the going gets tough can make a huge difference.
I will offer you a safe, confidential and supportive space where you can talk about what you are experiencing and how you are feeling. I will help you to identify choices, solutions or changes that you may want to make. I will not analyse you, judge you or try to impose my values and beliefs on you. I will offer you my attention, respect and respect your individuality

Appointments last for 50 minutes and are usually weekly, at a regular day and time. It's difficult to know in advance how long counselling or psychotherapy will take. Usually a minimum of six sessions are required although many clients prefer to work for longer. The cost of individual sessions is £40 and couples £50.
