My counselling practice is in Chelmsford, Essex specialising in individual therapy with adults and adolescents. I offer confidential therapy sessions in a safe, non judgemental environment. I believe everyone has the right to fulfil their potential so if something or someone is stopping that together we can work through the issue or reasons why you feel stuck.
It can be easy to blame others but sometimes we need to look at ourselves to really see what is going on. The only person guaranteed to always be with you is YOU! so why not be the best person you can be. I often hear 'but I've always been like this' which is fine if you like that particular behaviour or trait of your personality. However, if this causes you pain or upset we can work on changing things. Learnt behaviours are exactly that learnt so you can change with some help. Change can sound scary but working together without judgement can improve your self worth allowing you to fulfil your potential and enjoy life again.
I have appeared on Sky News to debate current mental health issues and topics, offering my impartial advice and opinions on the current difficulties facing many people.
Send me an email to discuss your situation, I am always keen to hear from new clients.
My specialised approach to counselling focuses around building a relationship with my clients and working with them to alleviate issues and improve their self worth.
