If you have found your way to my page the chances are that you are not feeling so great right now. Perhaps you know why this is; anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family problems, infidelity, alcohol/drugs or unhelpful behaviour patterns. Or perhaps it is a less definable feeling of dissatisfaction or disappointment with your life. Whichever of these describes your situation best, working with a therapist can be helpful.
Psychotherapy can help you:
- work through anxiety and depression
- improve/repair your relationships
- change unhelpful patterns of behaviour
- come to terms with distressing events, past or present
- get the most out of life and increase satisfaction
I offer individual psychotherapy and couples counselling in an integrative way. This means I have trained in several different therapeutic approaches and can tailor my methods and exercises according to your needs. I work in comfortable private rooms in the conservation area of Southend/westcliff. My Nelson Street office is a ten minute walk from both Southend Central and Southend Victoria station and has ample parking. Sessions last 50 minutes and usually take place weekly.
