About me

Most people experience problems at some time in their lives, many experience regular recurring difficulties.  If you are wondering if Counselling will help, then maybe it is time to try it.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches and can therefore tailor sessions to suit the individual. My way of working favours Person Centred, CBT and TA. I also have a strong interest in Attachment and Trauma.

I provide a safe and non-judgemental space to talk openly, where confidentiality is of the utmost importance.

In addition to private practice I am a Senior Volunteer Counsellor with Southend Carers, supporting people in a caring role who are in crisis.

Prior to being a Counsellor I worked for 8 years as a Team Leader working with disadvantaged youths.  As an experienced Youth Worker, I am also skilled at building confidence, self esteem and motivation in people who have needed to overcome challenging circumstances.

Thank you for viewing my profile, please feel free to contact me.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
