I am a fully qualified person centered counsellor based in Epping and Chadwell Heath.
I offer telephone And online counselling which in these present times are more convenient where you can talk in your own home and practice safe distancing.
I offer both short and long term counselling and am available during the day or evenings and weekends. It can be difficult to deal with things and even more difficult to talk about things, life’s experiences can be very difficult or too painful to face on your own.
Talking with someone who is not a family member or friend can help you to share those things you feel you can’t say to people who are close to you. I’m here to offer personal counselling, a warm, supportive, understanding and non- judgemental space to help explore what is going on for you, at your own pace.
If you think this may be what you are looking for then please contact me and I will be very happy to help. To arrange an appointment you would have taken the first step to feeling good again. Please feel free to look at my website.

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.
