About me

The first step towards seeking external support to help you deal with emotional issues is a difficult one to make. It is courageous to seek guidance on issues that are still too often belittled by society. If you are reading this, be proud that you are considering making this step.

How I Work:

With a clinical background within the NHS and Private Sector, experience with children with Autism as well as my Counselling work, I believe in giving people the autonomy to explore and unburden themselves in an environment that is free of judgement, stigma or bias.

At Emotionalskills, I help our diverse range of clients tackle various concerns, such as:

  • Anxiety + Panic Disorders
  • Depression + Low Mood / Feeling Sad
  • Relationship + Couples Issues
  • Anger + Frustration
  • Family + Teenage Issues
  • Dissatisfaction + Unhappiness
  • Phobias

The Emotionalskills model is a straightforward therapeutic skills course designed specifically to help each unique client work through their problems.

I work with:

  • Adults
  • Young people (15 plus)
  • Older people who thought they were too old to change
  • Couples who want to stop arguing
  • Struggling family units
  • People who want to realise a fulfilling life

Who I Am:

I am trained in integrative therapy, which means that I can draw from numerous theories and skills that best suit each person. I believe that counselling offers invaluable support if you are coming to terms with life changing experiences or you want to understand certain emotions with the help of someone who is both objective and has no hidden agenda.

I am a member and practitioner of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such, I am bound by its ethical framework.

Please feel free to text / call (07986 488690), email, or perhaps visit the website, Sessions are held in Laindon, Basildon and take place in a private and relaxed environment.
