About me

I am a Senior BACP Accredited/ Registered Person Centred Counsellor / Psychotherapist. I have over 20 years experience of being with persons who have chosen to seek counselling and therapeutic support. I abide by the BACP ethical framework for good practice.

I consider it a privilege to be alongside a person who could be experiencing depression, anxiety, low self esteem or other feelings that can be felt as overwhelming and unmanageable.  

My core training is in the Person Centred Approach, where my ultimate aim is to offer a caring safe place for a person to talk about experiences they have had or are having, that has maybe left them feeling vulnerable and unsure of what to do or how to be. Counselling offers an opportunity to begin to disentangle confusions and fears that disable inner confidence and leave the way open to considering more enabling personal choices.

Experience:
Alongside my private practice I have been an in house counsellor for a number of GP surgeries. I have worked sessionally for a project dedicated to persons with Personality Disorder and am an associate counsellor for EAPs. I am BUPA recognised.

My practice is located in a quiet village 3 miles South of Colchester with parking facilities available.

I offer time limited (6 - 12 sessions) or long term (ongoing sessions) which can be agreed between us at assessment. The time frame is offered to confirm that a person can rely on the space they are asking for and can be managed according to a person's need.
