I offer sessions all day on a Monday and a Friday. I also carry out sessions during most evenings.
The sessions are ideally held face to face and are located in a therapy room within a garden. I also counsel on line and on the telephone. The most appropriate forum to match your needs can be discussed during the initial consultation phase.
Parking is free.
The office is easily accessible, safe, well lit and comfortable.
About me and my therapy practice
I run a private practice in Hadleigh, Essex.
I strive for a practice that welcomes and affirms all people, regardless of ethnicity, age, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion.
I have a myriad of experience working with those that have had challenging lives. I have worked in the Criminal justice system, NHS/ Mental Health Psychiatric Units and in the Education system.
I hold an Enhanced criminal record check provided by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and am a Member of BACP.
I also work with private insurance companies.
I am an integrative trained counsellor which means I draw upon different modalities and theories to ensure my client is offered therapy that is tailored to their own individual needs. I use various forms of Therapy: CBT, Transactional Analysis, Person-Centred and Solution Focused Therapy.
I offer a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space to understand and make sense of how things are for you, so together we may explore what you wish to achieve.
I have a particular professional interest in those with Special Educational Needs, complex teenage issues and trauma.
My first session
In the first instance, I offer a free 30 minute phone call. This allows me to get an idea of how you respond to a small trail of therapy, and for us to agree if we would like to further work together.
Thereafter my sessions run for 50 minutes.
I find weekly sessions create momentum which supports the therapeutic process. Some clients move to fortnightly sessions once the work is established. I also have many clients who 'dip in' monthly for their therapeutic session to sustain their well being and balance thoughts.
