About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor offering counselling covering a wide range of issues.

I provide a safe and relaxed space to explore any difficulties you may be experiencing in confidence.

We all have times in our lives when we feel unable to cope. Sometimes we struggle with a crisis or we find certain events or relationships difficult. Having someone to talk to in a supportive environment can help you to make sense of these experiences and to make changes to live the life you choose.

My approach is person-centred, believing in each individual's ability to become more self-aware and take control of their own lives. My counselling aims to help you see your life more clearly and supports you in achieving your own potential. When helpful, this may make use of coping strategies to guide you through difficult times.

I have extensive experience in helping clients overcome anxiety and depression and have specialised in working with relationship and family difficulties. I have also experience of working with young people and adults with a wide range of issues, including self-harm and bullying. This has often made use of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques which can help with building confidence and with overcoming panic attacks and managing anger.

My private practice is based in the relaxed setting of a listed building, close to parking and bus routes, in central Colchester.
