About me

I offer psychotherapeutic counselling. The goal of which is to look at the ways in which our pasts affect the present. Issues relating to interpersonal relationships, and our relationship with ourselves have their roots in the primary experiences of our pasts.

If you are experiencing worrying levels of stress anxiety and depression, then psychotherapeutic counselling might help shed light on and show the significant meaning of the roots of these feelings and emotions. Which may lead to a more rounded, balenced and reality based level of self acceptance and understanding.

Low self esteam, feelings of shame guilt and unworthyness, are also particularly well suited issues to bring to a psychotherapeutic counsellor. Linked as they might very well be to primary early experiences.

Feel free to contact myself, we can discuss the possibility of having an initial assessment, where we can decide together if this service is suitable for your individual needs. We can then proceed with at least once weekly sessions. I am happy to provide either short term or open ened packages, suited to your individual situation.

The session are provided in a quiet peaceful old building, set just on the edge of Colchester town centre.

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.
