About me

I work with any form of emotional difficulties, from losing direction in life to bereavement or loss. I am passionate about working with family members who have been affected by the mental health of another or struggling with caring responsibilities.

I get to work with you to become the best version of you and I couldn’t imagine anything better!

Offering both short and long term counselling. I will be led by you, in the direction that you would like to go and I have the belief that you know exactly where that is.

I offer face-to-face counselling sessions from my calming practice based in Southchurch.  A full COVID protocol is in place to ensure your safety and will be emailed prior to our first session together.

I also provide the option for sessions to be held via Zoom or WatsApp call, to adapt to your requirements.

Sessions will be 50 minutes long and it is usually most effective to maintain the same time each week.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. If for any reason you do not feel connected to my profile, or I do not have availability, I can refer you to other therapists within my private practice www.lifehousetherapy.co.uk.

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.
