About me

I am an integratively trained counsellor, which means that I am able to personalise the style of counselling to suit the individual needs of the client. I offer a professional, non-judgemental, confidential service for clients who need a safe, contained place and dedicated time to work through their issues, difficulties and conflicts.

For whatever reason you have turned to counselling, I am here to listen and to support, to explore with you  your issues and options, and to help you find a way forward.

Starting Counselling can be scary and often people find it difficult to take the plunge. A good way to find out whether counselling feels right for you is to call or Email me to set up a FREE initial session. At this session we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling. Then, if you are happy to continue, we will set up a 2nd session and arrange to see you either weekly or fortnightly, depending on your availability and preference.

I am also the founder of a specialist counselling service for those experiencing grief and loss in Southend and surrounding areas. For further information on this service and to find out what we can offer, please visit our website at

I work from a private, comfortable room in Southend-On-Sea, easily accessible by rail or road, ample parking, in the heart of the conservation area.

I am a Registered member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I hold professional indemnity insurance and I am CRB checked
