About me

If you are struggling with your emotions and feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, depression, worry, sadness, panic, anger or guilt or you are dealing with a challenging or stressful situation or life event, it can feel difficult to know what to do or who you can turn to for support.  

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and I can work with you to help you overcome these difficult feelings and emotions.  I work with adults and young people (13+). My sessions are very relaxed, confidential, caring, empathic and non-judgemental. 

Together, we can explore any difficult and challenging issues you may be experiencing, so that you can move forward and make changes in your life.

I appreciate that counselling can sometimes be a daunting prospect. My priority will always be to put you at ease and create a safe space where you will be listened to and feel heard. 

I can offer you time limited or ongoing counselling sessions.  You can decide.  We will work at your own pace, in your own time: whatever suits you best.  Being an Integrative counsellor means that I can draw on lots of different counselling approaches and theories to work on the areas that you need support with.

I work from comfortable and welcoming counselling rooms in Wickford and Westcliff on Sea.  Alternatively, I am happy to hold my sessions with you on-line or via the telephone.

As well as being in private practice, I also provide counselling services at a charitable organisation that offers nature-based therapy. 

I am passionate about my role as a counsellor and mental health. Areas I often work in are: anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, abuse, addiction, work / family issues, low self esteem, low self confidence, relationships and health matters etc. 

Please feel free to contact me by telephone or message on 07765 275 601 if you would like to arrange a session. Alternatively, you can arrange a free 20 minute telephone consultation so we can discuss your full requirements.

By reading this, you have already taken an incredibly brave and positive step to overcoming your challenges.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
