About me

There are times in life when we can all feel overwhelmed and we struggle to cope. Sometimes a traumatic event can lead to the need to speak to a counsellor, or maybe you are struggling to understand a situation in your life that just doesn’t seem to make sense? Maybe you have a sense that something needs to change but you’re just not sure where to start? Sometimes the problems we have aren’t clear cut and can be linked to events from our past.

Whatever your reason is for seeking a counsellor, I will offer you a safe, accepting and non-judgemental space to come and talk about yourself, your life and your problems. I believe that no matter what your reasons are for seeking counselling, that every person’s underlying needs are the same – to be listened to and to feel heard. By talking through what’s troubling you it is possible to find a slightly different perspective or a clarity and an understanding of what needs to change, sometimes when we keep things inside we can't see them this clearly and they can easily overwhelm us.

I have worked with Essex Police since 2016 working directly with children and adult survivors of sexual violence. During this role, I have attended many training events and workshops around the subject of sexual violence, domestic violence, sexual abuse and trauma which has greatly broadened my knowledge and understanding of these issues on many levels. The way that the human brain deals with trauma particularly fascinates me and my counselling work has shown me just how different and unique our brains all are.

As an integrative counsellor, I work by integrating different counselling theories into my work, which means that every client I work with will have their sessions tailored to meet their own specific needs.

I completely understand that finding a counsellor can be a very daunting experience, if you would like to contact me we can have a chat about whether you feel that this is the right step for you and I will answer any questions or worries you may have. If you decide to go ahead we can arrange a time to meet for an assessment session to discuss fully your needs and you will have the opportunity to decide if I am the right counsellor to meet your needs at this time.
