There are many counsellors available but finding the right one for you is important. I am a qualified therapist and have experience in working with adults, adolescents and couples with a wide range of issues. I offer my clients warmth and a safe space to explore difficulties whilst helping them to find the best way forward. Please feel free to call me and you can decide if you would like to book an appointment.
I am an integrative therapist which means I use different modalities including CBT and humanistic therapies. My core approach is person-centred because I believe the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the client and counsellor - if the therapeutic relationship is good then you will feel safe and comfortable sharing your feelings with someone you trust.
I make it my priority to put you at ease and offer you a space where you can be yourself and share your innermost worries and fears.
I understand the complexity of being human and have respect for my clients' individuality and life circumstances.
I offer you true empathy and understanding and listen without judgement. I will challenge you where needed and help you to thrive in life, despite the issues that have brought you to counselling.
I am a registered member of the BACP and have experience with a diverse range of clients and issues. As well as my private practice, I have counselled families in crisis at Southend Borough Council and worked for a local homeless project helping addicts in recovery. I also work at a local secondary school counselling adolescents.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
