About me

Admittedly it can feel daunting at first to realise/acknowledge that we are struggling and feeling stuck but counselling is a way that allows us to regain control over our lives and start on an exciting new journey for the future. To get started all you need to do is call or email me to arrange an initial session to talk about what you hope to get out of counselling and from there we can discuss the best way forward for you.

Whether it is bereavement, anxiety, depression or relationship problems, people come to counselling for many different reasons. The relationship between the two of us is important as it allows trust to develop at a time when the ability to trust is stretched. Therefore I offer a warm and gentle approach within a safe and confidential space to talk about your feelings and worries in a private and quiet environment. I provide the space where you can be heard and understood without the fear of feeling judged.

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor with over 10 years of experience offering both short and long-term therapy to adults, couples and young people covering a wide range of problems including anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationship difficulties. I adhere to the BACP professional code of ethics. I have many years of experience of working in a wide variety of environments including schools, doctors, a college, a hospice and many years with a well known mental health charity within the NHS.

I am here, not to tell you what to do but to understand how you are feeling and support you in a non-judgemental way as together we explore the problems that you may be facing. This is the first step to a self-awareness and understanding that allows you to make the changes that would make your life feel easier or simply feel better about yourself

I work from my home in a quiet village central to Braintree, Gt Dunmow, Thaxted and Saffron Walden.
