About me

Counselling can enable you to express yourself and to be yourself. I will listen in an empathic and non-judgemental way, giving you space and time to support you and focus on your needs.  I practice from both Life Force Counselling Centre and Greenstead Commuity Centre in Colchester.

If you think you would benefit from counselling please contact me and I will respond as soon as I can.  At the initial appointment, we will meet to see how we can work together, and if so, we will contract to further work. I can offer short or longer term counselling in a warm and boundaried environment.

I practice integrative counselling which means the focus is on your individual needs. I deal with all relationship issues, as well as anxiety, depression, addictions and trauma.  I have experience of working with a wide variety of different issues in my clinical practice. I am a registered BACP counsellor qualified to see clients age 18 and upwards. I have over 3 years' experience counselling a wide variety of clients in private practice which I am endlessly pasionate about.  I also enjoy working creatively with clients as I feel this is a great way of exploring and developing a client's potential for growth in any areas.

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied counselling and creative therapies at the University of East London and qualified as an integrative counsellor at Life-Force Counselling Centre in Colchester in February 2016. I am a registered counsellor and member of BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.

Abuse, anger, alcohol & drug addictions, bullying, bereavement, grief, loss, separation and divorce, domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse, including historic abuse.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a very good knowledge of working with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, orthopaedic trauma, post traumatic stress related to refugees from war zones as well as usual issues which present in counselling.  I am very interested in the connection between mind and body and working therapeutically with this.
