About me

About Me
I am a qualified and BACP accredited Counsellor based in Epping, Essex CM16. I work with people who come to counselling because they need to make sense of the problems they are facing in the present and difficulties from the past.

I provide a safe and trusting environment to give you the space you need to express how you feel. I am experienced working with depression and anxiety, which can be as a result of many different reasons such as, relationship & family issues, problems at work, bereavement, loss, abuse and so on.

I also specialise in working with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can result from a traumatic event(s), impacting on daily life. This can be a recent event, or something that happened many years ago. People come to counselling because they are unhappy in their lives and want to make changes. 

I deliver long term, or time-limited counselling, according to your individual needs. I work with adults from 18 years.

I respect, value and engage with issues of equality and diversity.

Our first meeting is an assessment of your needs and to find out if counselling is appropriate.  If at the end of this initial appointment I am unable to work with you I will signpost you to another service.  It is without obligation on either side you also need to feel comfortable working with me, so please feel free to ask me any questions you have.

The cost of weekly appointments is £60. Payment is paid after each session, by either cash/cheque, or invoice for EAP company/agency schemes.

Cancelled or missed sessions, including holidays or illness, are also paid for.
