About me

life can feel difficult and overwhelming at times because we are human, you can never say anything silly or stupid in counselling because if you feel it it cant be wrong, to know you have someone who will listen without judgement to you and help you become the best version of you whilst working at your pace

I offer a completely free 20 minute consultation over the phone with no obligation to start counselling, if you are considering counselling for an initial chat about you and your situation before you decide if you want to start therapy.

I believe everyone deserves to be the best version of themselves but past experiences and life, in general, can hinder this. I am an integrative trained therapist working within 3 core approach's, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive therapy, offering tailored counselling to every client believing in your autonomy and helping you to realize that you are the expert of you.

Canvey Counselling Service offers you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore difficult feelings that may be confusing, stressful or painful. I have experience of working with children from 13yrs to adults, each session is 50 minutes.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I work within the ethical framework, I keep my CPD up to date, have regular supervision. I am DBS checked and fully insured

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
