About me

I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor. I trained intergratively, which means I use a range of different theories and modalities to support my clients depending on what you need. It might be that you want to look at events from your past that you feel are holding you back or it might be that you want to concentrate on what is going on for you in the here and now, we can do either or both. 

My approach to working with clients is holistic, taking into account the mind, body and soul. Whilst working together I am also able to offer you therapeutic tools to help support you outside of the counselling room, if you feel that would be helpful.

I offer face-to-face or online appointments from my therapy room based in Chelmsford. I work with young people (16+) and adults. 

To get started with counselling drop me an email by clicking on the green box at the top of my profile or you are welcome to call or text if you prefer. We will arrange a free 15 minute chat. After we have spoken, take your time to choose if you would like to arrange our first appointment. You are under no obligation, what is most important is that you find the right therapist for you.
