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.
