About me

Sometimes we cant put words to how we feel and this can make it hard to explain our feelings to friends and family. Counselling is a place to talk about feelings and if you don't have the words, sounds can explain a feeling so much better.

I offer you a non-judging, confidential space where you can be you (take off the mask you hide behind). I don't want to give you advise because I believe you know what works for you, however in the darkest of times its hard to find it by yourself.  I'm not saying its going to be easy and we will explore difficult feelings that may be confusing, stressful or painful but I am sure we will have some laughs a long the way, even if you don't feel like it now.  Each session is 50 minutes which are normally weekly

It all starts with a completely free 20 minute assessment over the phone. No obligation, This gives you the chance to ask me questions and to see if counselling is right for you. So click on the email me button or call/text me on the number above.

I am a qualified counsellor who has worked with all different ages from children to adults, who have different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. I have worked as a counsellor within a number of charities that specialise in emotional well-being for children and adults

I work in a integrative way, which means I use different theories that best fits you and your needs.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I work within the ethical framework, I keep my CPD up to date, have regular supervision. I am DBS checked and fully insured

I work in a lovely room in Canvey Island with parking down one of the side roads and is near Canvey Town Centre
