About me

I understand that contacting a Counsellor for the first time can sometimes feel difficult and take a lot of courage, especially if you are unsure how counselling can help you. My aim as a Counsellor is to provide you with a safe and confidential space, to enable you to feel comfortable in talking about and exploring your thoughts and feelings. I offer counselling to both couples and individual adults, over a long and short term, with flexible daytime and evening appointments.

People seek counselling because they are experiencing difficulties or distress in their life. You may be feeling anxious, depressed, having relationship issues, family problems or struggling to find confidence, you may have experienced a traumatic event in your life, such as a bereavement that has left you feeling sad, lonely or anxious. You may be feeling stuck or confused and not know what the problem is. Whichever of these describes your situation, working with a Counsellor can be the first steps in creating changes to improve your well-being. Having a greater understanding of yourself enables you to make more of your relationships and to have a fuller and more satisfying emotional life.

As well as my own private practice, I work as a Counsellor within the NHS, in partnership with Thurrock Mind. Previously, I have worked as a volunteer Bereavement Counsellor for a Hospice,  and as a Couple Counsellor for Marriage Care, all of which has given me lots of experience in working with a variety of people from diverse ages, cultures and backgrounds who were suffering from a range of difficulties..

I am a professionally trained, qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy - MBACP. I work in accordance to their framework for ethical practice and am committed to ongoing professional and personal development.  I hold an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau DBS disclosure, and am fully insured. My training includes a range of approaches and I will work according to the needs and lifestyle of the individual, rather than imposing a specific technique.

Member organisations

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.
