About me and my therapy practice
Space for you. (Essex based counselling practice.)
I am a qualified, accredited, and experienced integrative counsellor.
I am also an accredited and qualified EMDR therapist, working towards EMDR accreditation.
EMDR is an acronym for ‘Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing’. EMDR is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by an American clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro, in the 1980s.
EMDR is a complex and powerful therapy. Therapists always have a background in mental health before undertaking training in EMDR.
I offer counselling, both short and longer term, to individuals for a variety of problems. Sometimes people have specific issues they wish to explore, with someone who can listen in a confidential and non-judgemental way, independent from friends and family. At other times people may be worrying excessively, feeling confused, overwhelmed, or low in spirit. I have many years’ experience working in the NHS, with clients who have chronic illness, Chronic Fatigue and Multiple Sclerosis. And I also have experience within the Bereavement and Alcohol Agencies.
I am accredited with BACP and work within their professional and ethical frameworks.
I would welcome an opportunity to build a therapeutic relationship, to work together to create and gain an awareness of the possibilities to make meaningful changes to your life and together examine the choices available to you.
