About me

There comes a time in all our lives when we need help. It is sometimes difficult to tell a friend or family member what is troubling us. We just need to unload to 'someone' we can trust. This is why I decided to train as a counsellor/therapist. Let me be that 'someone' for you.

I am a registered member of the BACP with some years experience and I offer a friendly, confidential and relaxed place where you can feel comfortable enough to talk about your feelings and what is worrying you, for example, if you are experiencing feelings of anxiety or you are worried about a relationship, I am there for you.

How can I help?

I have experience of many different counselling/therapy approaches, and I have a positive and optimistic view of human nature.

What should you expect from our sessions?

I practice from a therapy room in central Manningtree where parking Is available. The therapy rooms are private and comfortable.

However, if you live in other areas like Mistley, Brantham, Lawford, Dedham, Stratford St Mary, East Bergholt, etc, I am happy to see you also.

Day time and evening appointments are available. All sessions last for 50 minutes from the agreed appointment time.

Normally we would meet and review your needs, then you would have the option to continue for as long as you need or for a fixed number of sessions. The number of sessions you need depends on your personal situation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have many and varied qualifications including:

  • BA (Hons)
  • HE Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling
  • Diploma in Counselling Skills
  • Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Cert Ed

Professionally, I am a qualified psychotherapist/counsellor and I have counselled people with a variety of concerns that they needed help with. I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP), and as such I am bound by and adhere to the BACP ethical framework.

  • Counselling room


Sessions are charged at £35 per session - payable by cash, or on-line banking, at the end of each session. 

Each session will last for 50 minutes.

(If you are unable to attend a pre-arranged session, we can do our best to find another mutually convenient time to meet.
However, if sessions are cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, the full fee will become payable, as costs still have to be met.)

Further information


So, what do clients say to me?

One client was about to leave their partner and after several sessions they turned to me and said:

                                            "you don't know how good you are".

They are still together and the client has decided to go to college to train for a new career.
