About me

About me
The counselling service I have established is called, "Ray of Hope therapy".  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling. I am a fully accredited member of the BACP.  I offer clients therapy using the humanistic approach. I have a great deal of experience in counselling and group work. I have worked within various professional organisations, including the NHS and The Priory Hospital, working with addiction and many other issues such as trauma, loss, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks and depression.

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment offering my clients unconditional, positive regard and empathy as they grow and develop. This can lead to greater insight, healing and progress.

I work from my private practice in Ardleigh Green, Essex and Brentwood and I can also offer sessions available on Zoom. 

Sometimes the world we live in gets tough. There can be so many mixed messages which we start to believe about ourselves, this can sometimes develop into a negative core belief such as. " I'm not good enough or I don't fit in", and many more, as a result of this clients can often feel depressed, it starts to affect self-esteem. Counselling can help clients to challenge these negative core beliefs and help break the patterns this will result in a more positive self-concept and self-esteem.

Our early experiences, both negative and positive, impact on our present way of thinking, behaving and relating to others, therefore it is important to help the client to make those links between past and present behaviour, to increase their self-awareness and bring about change.

I believe in the core conditions, i.e., putting clients at the centre of their own recovery and empowering them to change their lives for the better.
To book a session, just email me or text and i will get back to you within 24 Hours.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
