About me

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor who is passionate about the possibility for change and recovery through talking therapy. I believe we can all benefit from talking and being listened to by someone other than family or friends.

You may be thinking about counselling because you are experiencing anxiety or depression and feel overwhelmed. Perhaps you have experienced a bereavement, an accident, a traumatic incident, a change in your work or family circumstances, domestic abuse, relationship issues or perhaps you may be feeling sad and that something is not quite right. Talking to a trained counsellor can help you to understand your feelings and lead to recovery.

Psychodynamic Counselling allows us to look at how our past experiences may be affecting our lives in the here and now. I am an experienced counsellor offering short and long term counselling to those experiencing a range of issues including relationship difficulties, abuse, suicidal thoughts, family issues, and feelings such as low self-esteem, generalised anxiety, panic and depression.   I will work with you, exploring your thoughts and emotions to try and make sense of what is happening so that you can enjoy your life.

I offer counselling to adults, young people and couples in my private practice, Flourish Counselling in Chelmsford.  I also work as a therapist at a local children's charity.  I have experience of working in schools and as an Honorary Psychotherapist within the NHS.

My private practice is based on the outskirts of Chelmsford and has on-site parking. It is easily accessible from Chelmsford, Dunmow, Felsted, Ongar and the surrounding areas. I offer a tranquil consultation room that is a safe, comfortable and confidential place for us to talk.

If you are thinking about counselling or have questions please get in touch for an initial consultation.  This is an opportunity for you to find out more about the process to help you make a decision on whether counselling is the right thing for you.
