About me

I work in Colchester in Essex in CO1

I am an extremely intuitive therapist and therefore you will access your issues fairly quickly.

My current work is very much focused on empowering you, as you feel deeply into your current experience through awareness. This process allows you to make choices and truly see what is going on for you at a deep level, thereby enabling change, healing and freedom.

I work with your current experience, this may trigger past experiences that are presenting to you for healing. I also work with your potential. Together we can explore the issues that you bring to the session in a safe and confidential environment.

All sessions are led by you and I work at your pace offering insights when appropriate.

I have 25 years experience in  private practice and offer counselling around a range of issues, with particular understanding around depression, bereavement, relationship and fertility issues. As well as people who want to explore life changes.....maybe at a crossroads....

In the last 15 years I have worked within interdisciplinary NHS teams providing counselling to people who are undergoing fertility treatment. So I totally understand the complex range of emotions that you are feeling. I’ve offered counselling to people who have undergone treatment for cancer and who have experienced neonatal bereavements and miscarriage. I have also worked with older people and carers. I have worked in hospitals, community projects and in my private practice

I am also very aware of the issues around M E and chronic fatigue.
I work with individuals and couples.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
