About me

I provide a professional and confidential counselling service in Leigh-on-Sea & Southend-on-Sea. I work in an integrative way, using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Person Centred approaches. I think it is important to tailor my approach to the needs of the individual as I do not believe that one approach is appropriate for everyone. As a counsellor, I will not tell you what to do or take control of your life. I will be non-judgmental, accept you unconditionally and will support you through your journey of self discovery, empowering you to take control of your life. I will provide a confidential and safe environment for you to work in.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist ( I work within the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I did not become a counsellor until I was in my early forties, having spent 20 years working in Banking, Finance and IT. This means that I am able to bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling work, which I believe is very important for a counsellor. I currently have a private practice in Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea, Essex and have 7 years experience working as a Pastoral Care Manager/Counsellor in a Special Needs School for children with social, emotional & behavioural difficulties. I worked as a volunteer counsellor at an NHS Mental Health Unit for 5 years and also teach the 'Certificate in Counselling Skills' & the 'Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling' at a local college.

I originally trained as a Mathematician and have a BSC (Hons) degree in Mathematics, but when I changed my career path to become a Counsellor, I gained the following qualifications since starting my counselling career:
Certificate in Counselling Skills
Advanced Diploma in Counselling
Practitioner Diploma in Counselling Theory and Skills
Certificate in Counselling Supervision
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) Levels 1,2,3 & 4
