About me

Maybe you’re experiencing stress, anxiety or depression, in your personal or work life, have low self-esteem and self-confidence, have had a bereavement or loss, or be experiencing difficulties in a relationship. Perhaps your current situation seems impossible to change or you might want to understand events that happened in your past or present.

I am now offering counselling face to face as well as via Zoom/Skype/Telephone. We can work together to make a positive change to your life.

All of my clients say that I’m very calm and easy to talk to.

Sometimes counselling can seem scary, but taking the first step and investing in yourself will make a huge difference to your life and the people around you, so if you feel ready, please contact me to arrange your first session.

I help people with a range of difficulties, but I have a special interest in working with loss, difficult relationships, stress and working with people who are carers.

All of my clients say I’m very calming; which encourages them to relax and share their issues.

Sometimes it's hard to speak to family and friends as you don't want to feel like a burden.. I'm here to listen and offer you a safe, non judgemental space to talk about your issues.

I have worked with clients for over 2 years and I have a Private Practice on Canvey Island and I also work from offices based in Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff, Essex.

I work as an Integrative Counsellor which means I use a combination of approaches: Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness.  Everybody is individual so I will use the best modality suited to the needs of my client.

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.
