About me

I am a fully registered and insured psychotherapist and chartered psychologist. I offer therapy sessions to adults in a lovely rural location just outside of Colchester town centre.

I'm an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist. This kind of therapy emphasises the impact of childhood experiences on the difficulties you have as as adult. You may be surprised at how deeply early events can influence your thoughts and feelings, leaving their mark on your emotional world and driving you towards unhelpful ways of functioning.

Psychoanalytic therapy aims to work at a deep level, creating lasting change in personality, and is particularly helpful to people who have complicated, entrenched, or longstanding difficulties.

However, the usefulness of this approach is not limited to these situations as it can be very beneficial in any situation that brings distress or discomfort. It helps you to explore, understand, and resolve what is troubling you, and helps you to create the foundation you need to take new steps in your life - to feel differently, to think differently, and to make new decisions.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss how we might work together to ease and resolve whatever difficulties you are facing.

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
