About me

Hello, thank you for looking at my profile.

I hope you will get all the information you're looking for... if you have any questions please feel free to get in contact with me.

I am based in Westcliff. I set up my private practice 4 years ago, I wanted to offer a counselling service that was bespoke to the client, by that I mean offering a service that is right for the individual, as I feel not a one glove fits all.

I have worked as a Qualified Psychotherapist/counsellor now for over 17 years, working with individuals, couples, adolescents, families and groups.

So why choose me?

  • I'm open minded, and realise the diversity and uniqueness of an individual.
  • I am able to visit you at home if you are unable to visit me through either illness or disability.
  • I am realistic, down to earth and never have expectations Of others, I am non judgemental.
  • I am RELATE trained.
  • I understand the importance of communication, and how a few small adjustments can make such a massive difference.
  • I have experience of working within a school framework with young people and adolescents.
  • I am experienced in family counselling, couple counselling and individual therapy.
  • I have a full and updated DBS that I am happy to provide.

When did it begin?

In 1999 I began my first steps in counselling training.

Not always easy, lots of soul searching and self discovery.

Four years later I Qualified as a psychotherapist-counsellor, then I really began to learn.

For the last 13 years I have continued my personal development, learning not only from courses but from the client my journey continues.....

How does it work?

Counselling does not always have to be long term, sometimes a few sessions can be enough.

The beauty of private practice is the flexibility.

Counselling is unique experience. In the initial assessment session , we make sense and gain an understanding of what has brought you, identifying how we can move forward.

At the end of the session we can book another appointment, or you can go away and think about it and decide to book another time.

Further information

So to summarise....

Counselling is the clients and the therapist coming together to find a way forward

Sessions last an hour, occasionally slightly longer, family counselling will be longer.

The number of sessions can be as many or as few as required, and although continuity is important we can spread them out if that’s more convenient.

Counselling can help by simply being able to talk freely in a safe environment; it is often called 'The Talking cure'.

Many people internalise their problems, often not knowing where to turn, then often feeling relief on being able to share with another.
