I am a Counselling Psychotherapist working in Epping, Essex CM16. I completed a postgraduate training in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (MSc) at Birkbeck College, University of London and I am Accredited with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). In 2016 I completed a training in Counselling for Depression, which is recommended by National Institute in Clinical Excellence (NICE) as a treatment for depression.
I have worked in a number of different organisations, including the NHS and deliver long-term and time-limited counselling according to your individual needs. I have considerable experience of working with many different issues and how this can manifest in low mood, depression, stress, anxiety and relationship issues.
Secure & Confidential
People come to counselling because they are unhappy in their lives and want to make changes. Difficult situations, such as relationship and family issues, bereavement, work difficulties, or unexpected incidents can lead to feeling overwhelmed. Frequently people can feel emotionally trapped, or have past experiences they want to reflect on. Talking about these experiences enables you to make sense of how they can be impacting on your life.
Often we have created ingrained patterns of self-belief. Once we start to recognise these patterns we can make shifts of how we perceive ourselves and the freedom and empowerment to make changes. I offer a confidential non-judgmental safe space where you can talk about any emotional and psychological problem that may impact on how you live your life.
I work sensitively in accordance with the individuality of each person. I respect, value and engage with issues of equality and diversity.
