About me and my therapy practiceHealing happens when we have the courage to share our story with someone who can hear it with empathy and understanding. I look forward to hearing your story.
I provide a safe space where you can explore your feelings and issues away from your daily life. I look to identify the original cause of an issue rather than focus on the symptoms. This means that I can work with all kinds of issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, grief, low self-esteem, divorce, eating disorders, etc.
The root cause may be hidden in unconscious beliefs you have about yourself and others or in feelings you suppress. I can help you unravel your thoughts and feelings to find understanding and meaning. You will become more aware of how you relate to others.
Psychodynamic counselling is evidence-based and supported by the latest developments in neuroscience.
Weekly open-ended psychodynamic counselling for adults
This involves deep work looking to identify the origins of anxiety and depression. We work at your pace and you can attend for as long as you need. We will look to the past, current relationships and our relationship in the counselling room.
Weekly time-limited counselling for adults
Brief work of 8, 12 or 16 sessions to focus on one recurrent pattern of behaviour. This is particularly suited to Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs).
I offer face-to-face counselling in Purleigh, Essex, easily accessible from the Danbury, Chelmsford, Maldon, South Woodham Ferrers, Billericay and Wickford areas.
I also currently offer telephone counselling or online counselling via Zoom.
My first session
Contact me for an assessment session to see if you are happy to work with me. I understand that it may feel scary to start counselling but don't worry, it'll be ok. I will take a history and we can identify your objective for the counselling. The assessment session is 1 hour with subsequent sessions lasting 50 minutes.
The assessment session can be face-to-face, on the telephone or online via Zoom depending on what suits you.
We will agree a day and time for counselling and this will be your regular slot.
