Tara Malyon MBACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist (accred)
Struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues or work stress?. I specialise in these areas, providing a safe place for you to explore your difficulties, helping you to gain fresh insight and enabling you to learn new skills to manage your issues. I also specialise in Couple Counselling knowing that being in a relationship can evoke many challenges, often resulting in ineffective communication with each other which can leave us feeling very dissatisfied in our relationship. The counselling I offer is a space for you to bring and explore any issues which are proving too difficult or distressing to manage on your own or between you. We can often feel too embarrassed or proud to ask for help but I provide a non judgemental, warm and supportive space for us to work collaboratively to improve any issues that you may be facing on a day to day basis. Our sessions can be short term (more CBT focussed), or longer term depending on your individual/couple counselling needs. As each person and each relationship is unique it is important that we work together using a variety of techniques that will benefit You the client.
I work from comfortable, contemporary, counselling rooms in a quiet, scenic area of Wickford, called the Wickford Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy (WCCP) and in the Town of Chelmsford in a comfortable, private, Victorian house called the Chelmsford Wellbeing Centre (CWC). This is located right behind Chelmsford Train Station. I provide an environment of trust, confidentiality and acceptance, believing that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is essential to the work we do. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email to discuss your individual counselling needs. I am happy to provide an initial 15 minute telephone conversation to answer any questions you may wish to ask regarding therapy.
I am registered and fully insured as a healthcare professional with Bupa, AXA/PPP and AVIVA if you have health insurance which covers your mental health. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this more in depth, as this may help you become more aware of your counselling options.
