NHS IAPT Experience -
Sometimes life can be overwhelming and we can be dealing with something painful. We all have times when we need support. Perhaps you have experienced a difficult time and are struggling on the other side and need emotional support.
You do not have to struggle alone.
It is only when we speak to someone unconnected from us that we hear our thoughts and how we are really feeling. We primarily focus on clients that are dealing with life’s difficulties such as work, education, relationships and many more.
Additionally, psychological problems such as depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and panic.
I work with you to establish and help you achieve your goals at your own pace. I will offer you a safe space where you can be listened to and express your uncensored thoughts. I can also help you identify unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours and then work to break out of this vicious cycle.
Remote Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Due to the demands and routine of life, it can be difficult to attend face to face sessions. Online and telephone therapy are quickly becoming the first option for many patients who desire therapy. Some of these reasons could be due to the desired therapist is not local to them, working long hours, a disability and no childcare.
Remote therapy gives you the option to have it in the comfort of your own home, in your lunch break and also if you have a physical disability and cannot commute.
I provide remote therapy to students with mental health difficulties, couples nationally across the UK and also for many other difficulties and it has proven to be just as effective for face to face.

I have previous NHS experience. Counselling and CBT.
Choosing a therapist can be a daunting prospect. I offer a 10-minute telephone consultation over the phone to discuss what you require help with and would like to do. Alternatively, you can send me an email with any questions you might have. Facebook and Instagram: Mylifetherapyessex.
Our two therapy rooms come with a waiting room and patient toilet access. Parking available on site.
