About me

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 .

I have provided psychotherapy within social care, and created and managed a Camhs service within a school for emotional and behavioural difficulties.  Following this I consulted for, and clinically supervised a team of psychotherapists in a similar school.  I worked as a clinician for The Priory in their outpatient department.

My private practice is safe, confidential and containing.

I am also a skilled and experienced supervisor and offer individual supervision and group consultation within professional services.

I am a full accredited member of UKCP

Further information

I have completed a certificate in  somatic trauma training and I'm very interested in the effects of trauma on the mind and body and how it impacts the present.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
