About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

I am aware making a decision to pursue counselling can be a big step, and it can feel quite overwhelming. People come into counselling for a number of reasons, and whatever your particular reason may be, part of my role is to welcome and enable you in starting that journey. Please do feel free to call or email me if you have any questions, or you wish to arrange an initial session. In this we can talk about what is bringing you into counselling, and, what you would like to gain from our working together. Then if you would like to, we can arrange further appointments at a mutually convenient time.

I offer a confidential, safe and non judgemental space for you to focus on and explore any unresolved difficulties you may be struggling with.

I adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and a Diploma in Professional Services which I obtained on a BACP Accredited Training Course in 1992. I have been in practice for over 25 years working with both short and long term clients.   My model of practice is Integrative, which means I am able to tailor my approach to best suit the needs of the person seeking counselling, and I include person centred, solution focused and CBT skills into this.

Over the years I was the In-House Counsellor at a large GP Practice. I also have worked with local CCGs, Essex Police, Occupational Health Services, Further Education Academies, and EAPs (Employee Assisted Resources). I also manage my own caseload of individuals and couples who have privately referred themselves.

Issues I can help you with include, Abuse, Anxiety, Anger, Bereavement and Loss, Depression and Low Mood, Health Issues, Low Self Esteem and Confidence, Panic, Relationship and Couple (including Separation and Divorce) and Stress.

I am able to work with adults - individuals or couples.

I am able to offer telephone counselling.
