About me

Hello My name is Bhawna but my clients call me Bee. I work in the Grays and Chafford Hundred area

I offer a confidential Counselling services for families, couples, individuals and children.

Some of my clients have said

“We had whole family sessions and they helped us understand how we all felt; it helped us to reconnect in a way that we had lost”

“We have learnt to understand that we are both different and therefore we may not agree on everything, but the important thing is how to manage that difference”

“Bee, has helped us understand how to communicate better in our marriage”

"Three generations of the family met with Bee and we talked about how I learnt to be a Mum from my Mum and how that then impacted on my daughter"

I'm offering counselling/psychotherapy based on my 9 years of training and over 20 years of direct experiences of  working with families, children, and adults. I have been based in Essex for all of that time, but also worked/working in Central London. I have worked for the NHS, Local Authority and volunteered at MIND. I also have organisational consultation experience and a busy private practice.

At times life can be very difficult for all of us. Life events or experiences can leave individuals and families, struggling to make sense of how to carry on, and it takes outside support sometimes to help us get on track. I hope you will allow me to help you and your family during these difficult times.

I am also offering supervision to Counsellors and Systemic Psychotherapists

The type of work that I specialise in is:

All types of  relationship issues.
Couple conflict/separation.
Family work, child and parent conflict
Life changes i.e. divorce, ageing,
Illness and loss.

I believe in offering a transparent, collaborative and tailored therapeutic experiences for all my clients. Everyone has different needs and will want and need me to respond differently so that they can best use our sessions.

If we do work together I will offer a calm, safe environment for you to explore your difficulties and worries. Our sessions will be a journey of exploration based on your goals.

I can offer day, evening and some weekend appointments.
