About me

As corny as it sounds I really do believe that you are the best ProjectYou will ever work on - sometimes we all need a little support along the way.

I'm passionate about supporting and empowering you to make the changes in your life you want to see.  Are you struggling to manage your anxiety or finding family relationships challenging? Perhaps you're navigating the challenges of parenthood, or struggling with your confidence?  I've had the privilege of supporting clients with a variety different challenges they are facing.  

I know reaching out isn't easy - trust me I've been there! My own personal experiences of anxiety, birth trauma and postnatal depression, and the huge impact of counselling had on my own life, led to my decision to retrain as a counsellor. 

I'm here to listen & provide a calm, friendly, and safe space for you to feel heard, without worrying about being judged for how you're thinking or feeling. 

We are all unique & I believe our counselling should be too - I'm a pluralistic counsellor, which means I'm trained in lots of different counselling approaches, so I can tailor sessions to you, your needs, and your goals. 

Sessions are 50 minutes, either face to face at my private studio in Chelmsford, or remotely, via Zoom - whichever works best for you. Sessions cost £50. 

You can book in a session by dropping me an email or we can have a free initial chat - I look forward to hearing from you.
