About me

If you’ve arrived here, you're most likely contemplating some kind of change in your life. You might have decided that you can’t carry on as you are, or you may be curious to find out more about yourself. I hope I can help you with either.

I am an Integrative Relational Supervisor, Counsellor and Psychotherapist working near Braintree & Chelmsford in Essex. I am committed to offering my clients a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment in which to work through whatever is challenging them. Over the years I have experienced how counselling and psychotherapy can help deliver real life changes.

I begin my work with each person from a framework informed by the idea of Trauma and Recovery. I start in this way because I trust this framework to be a holding, ethical and compassionate way of working. Instead of asking "What's wrong with you?" we will work together to explore how what has happened in your past could still be affecting the way in which you're living life today. I am a member of The Relational School of Psychotherapy as both my professional experience and current psychological research confirms the relationship between therapist and client to be the defining factor in successful psychotherapy and counselling.

I am currently an EMDR Therapist in Training. I am offering Low Cost EMDR Therapy during my training and accreditation period. Please get in touch for further information about this.

I offer short term psychotherapy, which can be 6 to 12 sessions and I also offer open ended psychotherapy, exploring the underlying issues behind present concerns at greater depth.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
