About me

Choosing counselling is not always an obvious or easy option, and it can take a lot of courage to take the first step in making an enquiry and then to feel trust when talking to someone who is new to you.   If what is outlined on this page sounds like what you may be looking for, contact me by email or telephone leaving a short message and your details and we can discuss this possibility further.

I offer private counselling as a registered psychotherapeutic counsellor, working in a relational way using an integrative approach and model of therapy. I have been in practice since 2008 having previously worked in London, and I now work from premises in Wickford, Essex.
I also offer supervision of counselling to qualified counsellors and those in training, and I have an active list of counselling clients and supervisees.

My approach when working with those who make contact is to offer a non-judgemental, safe and accepting space to explore together at your own pace the topics identified, and to facilitate deeper understanding about any issues alongside ongoing growth and development of self reflection and resilience.

I have experience working with clients from a variety of diverse backgrounds over a large number of years and have accumulated many hours of supervised practice working with different presenting topics during this time. These include trauma; stress; spirituality; sexual abuse; separation and divorce; self harm; relationship issues; pregnancy and birth; obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); miscarriage; low self esteem; family issues; eating disorders; depression; bipolar disorder; bereavement; abortion; anxiety.

I work short term face-to-face and long term face-to-face.

Training, qualifications & experience

My integrative counselling diploma, degree and post-graduate level training, alongside on-going continued professional development (CPD), have enabled me to develop a range of knowledge and understanding about the different psychological techniques that may be useful during the counselling process.  These include; the use of creative tools and metaphor; considering mindfulness approaches; using processes associated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA).

My training organisations are: Barnabas Training International, Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Middlesex University:

  • Dip. Integrative Counselling
  • BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling
  • PG Dip. Supervision of Counselling
  • Certificate in Couples Counselling
  • On-going CPD

I am an organisational member of United Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and I abide by their code of ethics as a registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.
