About me

I am a Accredited Intregrative Counsellor, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Accredited EMDR Practitioner and a Clinical Supervisor. I am CRB checked and fully insured. As a Accredited member of the BACP and EMDR UK and Ireland Association I also hold a certificate of proficiency license number 055765 on the UK Gov Professionals Standards Acrredited Register.

I offer face to face, telephone and online therapy/counselling to adults and couples and offer face to face sessions to adolescents and children. I can also offer telephone and email/online therapy/counselling to international clients, as well as to individuals who may be unable to attend my clinic.

I can also offer supervision to qualified and trainee student counsellors/psychotherapists as well as personal therapy for students at discounted rates. Please contact me to discuss further.

As an experienced and professional therapist/counsellor we would explore cognitive, emotional, behavioural and cultural/environmental elements of your life together and my intention at all times is to provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental, comfortable, calming, relaxing and tranquil space for my clients to explore any presenting problems affecting them.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is a goal orientated, here and now solution focused evidenced based therapy which has been recognised by the NHS as a preferred treatment for a range of symptoms including anxiety and depression.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy which uses bi lateral simulation allowing the brain to process information in a more helpful way, which in turn helps alleviate symptoms.

EMDR is recognised as an effective and recommended treatment for post-traumatic stress (PTSD) worldwide; in Britain the National Institute for Health and Clinical excellence (NICE) recommends CBT and EMDR as trauma focussed therapy.

My clinic is in Billericay Essex, where there is ample free parking. For all new clients, I offer a free no obligation initial telephone consultation session where clients can ask all their questions and find out all about the therapies that I offer.

I offer individual and couple counselling to help with a range of presenting problems including Anxiety, Depression; Panic Disorders, Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD, Chronic Fatigue syndrome, Addictions, Low Self Esteem/confidence issues, Phobias, Suicidal Thoughts, Self-harming, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Work Related Stress, Bereavement and Loss
