Counselling and Psychotherapy
Children, Adolescents, Adults, Families, Parenting and Couples
I have a private therapy room in Hutton close to Shenfield and Billericay. I offer face to face and zoom sessions.
I work with a range of difficulties from anxiety and depression, attachment problems, relational difficulties, addictions, and more severe trauma based problems.
I offer a relational approach; meaning we do the work together, and at your pace. As you begin to trust in the process we delve deeper into the issues that are impacting your life.
I am a very experienced Psychotherapist. and supervise students and qualified practitioners .
