About me

For most of us there are times in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed by painful or difficult feelings.  Counselling can help in these situations. 

I have worked with clients with the following issues:
relationship difficulties, family breakdown, bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of anger, isolation, loneliness, difficulty coping with loss or change, lack of life purpose, work stress, bullying, self-harm, sexual or emotional abuse and unresolved painful feelings from the past.

Counselling offers an opportunity:
to talk confidentially with a professional therapist in a safe space; to build a relationship of trust where painful feelings can be expressed, sensitively explored and understood; to develop your inner resources and to become more empowered.

Person Centred Counselling:
I follow a person-centred approach to counselling, - the essential qualities of which are to create a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment, a total acceptance of the person, a desire to be empathic, and to understand that person, and a commitment to being genuine or 'real' in the relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in 1997 and have worked as a counsellor within GPs surgeries for the South Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust as part of a Primary Care team for 5 years, and at the Young Peoples Counselling Service in Brentwood, as well as within my own local private practice.
