About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced, registered psychodynamic counsellor and founder of Chelmsford Talking Therapy.

I offer confidential and therapeutic services for individuals who are struggling with a wide range of difficulties. These include - but are not limited to:

  • the suffering of acute anxiety
  • depression
  • panic attacks
  • eating disorders
  • bereavement
  • anger problems
  • and difficulties relating to trauma/PTSD.

I also have extensive experience of supporting individuals who are struggling with work-related stress, both on a private basis and via Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP’s). I work with people both on a long and short-term or time-limited basis.

With over fours years' worth of experience providing both individual counselling and family therapy, I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for individuals to explore their feelings and gain a greater understanding of different aspects of their lives both in the present and in the past.

It is my belief that having a strong sense of our true selves and our identity plays a large part in determining the quality of our mental health. I also believe that every one of us is different; I value individuality and approach every person who works with me, with that in mind.

Alongside psychodynamic counselling, I also specialise in Brief Solution Focused work which can be particularly beneficial in working towards rebuilding family relationships.

Who can I help?

My work is not limited to adults, I also have significant experience of working with children and young people/adolescents, families and couples. I also have experience in facilitating group workshops for children, young people and adults.

I am passionate that everyone should be able to access appropriate, professional counselling and mental health support that is right for them. In the event that you feel unable to afford the ongoing cost of counselling, I am happy to explore other options, including subsidised sessions (subject to status), which may make therapy more accessible to you.
