I offer counselling in Chelmsford, Essex specialising in individual therapy with adults and adolescents. I offer confidential therapy sessions in a safe, non judgmental environment. I believe everyone has the right to fulfill their potential so if something or someone is stopping that together we can work through the issue or reasons why you feel stuck.
It can be easy to blame others but sometimes we need to look at ourselves to really see what is going on. The only person guaranteed to always be with you is YOU! so why not be the best person you can be. I often hear 'but I've always been like this' which is fine if you like that particular behaviour or trait of your personality. However, if this causes you pain or upset we can work on changing things. Learnt behaviours are exactly that learnt so you can change with some help. Change can sound scary but working together without judgement can improve your self worth allowing you to fulfill your potential and enjoy life again.
I have appeared on Sky News to debate current mental health issues and topics, offering my impartial advice and opinions on the current difficulties facing many people.
Send me an email to discuss your situation, I am always keen to hear from new clients.
My specialised approach to counselling focuses around building a relationship with my clients and working with them to alleviate issues and improve their self worth.

I am a registered member of the 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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
