There are times in our lives when we're not OK,
and believe that no one understands our struggles,
that we alone should fix them, or that things will never change.
But it needn't be like this.
As an MBACP and UKCP registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor I can support you in getting clarity and relief from your difficulties. Working together you will learn to challenge and alter limiting your harmful beliefs, feelings and behaviours. With my supportive, confidential and respectful support you can:
• Make sense of your past experiences and find new perspectives
• Discover yourself in dealing with the present, and to cope with your challenges
• Feel confident in yourself and look forward to your future
I specialise in stress, anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, isolation, past traumas, substance abuse, addictions, and domestic violence. I work with people who experience difficulties in relationships with partners, family, and work-related issues. My psychotherapeutic practice is in North Chelmsford, Essex, and called Think Feel Act (www.ThinkFeelAct.life). You can read more about me and how I can support you on my website – click the 'visit website' button at the top of this page or go to http://www.ThinkFeelAct.Life
I offer face-to-face sessions in my practice in North Chelmsford, in Essex, or via video calls such as Zoom.
I offer a free, initial 30-minute phone consultation so you can get a feel for how we can work together. There's no ongoing obligation after this initial free consultation. I welcome you to call me for an obligation-free chat.
Training, qualifications & experience
I’m a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist in advanced clinical training in an MSc and Certified Transactional Analyst. I also hold a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the renown Metanoia Institute, the leading UK provider of specialist higher education in the disciplines of psychotherapy and counselling psychology and whose founders and past principals are internationally regarded in the field of Transactional Analysis psychotherapy. My training and qualifications with Metanoia are level 7 and validated by Middlesex University. I've worked as a counsellor at MCPS in West London, Centred of Change in Croydon and I am currently volunteering my services at CGL STARS (South-End Treatment and Recovery Services) in Essex.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA) and the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA). I abide by all of their ethical codes, which can be found on their respective websites.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

"I really feel like I'm being looked after by you, and that I'm really looking after myself too. It's like a battle in my head has ended where everyone has put their weapons down, and now I'm just left with the feeling of serenity."
"You gave me back my life, the life that now I'm not afraid to live."
"I could write a million words to say thank you, and I'm so grateful to have had you help me through the hardest time in my life."
"The insights you gave me are so helpful and you supported me throughout. Now I feel excited and so sure of myself. Thank you."
My consulting room is in the quiet and discreet surrounds of a residential area on north Chelmsford. There's off-street parking on a private driveway and local bus services within walking distance.
What you bring to therapy is personal and can also be profoundly private. Ensuring your confidentiality is my upmost importance so that you can explore all aspect of your self freely, safely, and without judgement.
