About me and my therapy practice

Life throws all kinds of things our way and we deal with these events as best we can but at times there is a sense of overwhelm. Sometimes we don't even understand why we are feeling so low, fearful or angry. Perhaps it is a recent event or crisis. Perhaps a more generalised feeling. Perhaps its both. Emotions can be hard to navigate on our own.

As a counsellor, I can help by providing the space for you to work out how you are feeling and to talk through what feels difficult. 

Our past experiences can unconsciously influence the thoughts, decisions and choices we make in the here and now. They can affect how we relate to others.

Psychodynamic counselling can enable you to untangle internal narratives from the past that may be keeping you stuck in unhelpful patterns or relationships. Gaining self-awareness and insight about these things, encourages lasting change.

Practice description

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and have worked with a range of adults with varying psychological and emotional difficulties. I provide a safe space for clients to talk through their difficulties whilst encouraging clients to be curious about their internal voice and narratives. 

My practise is based in Chelmsford, approximately a 5 minute walk from the train station. Counselling sessions are weekly and you would be offered a session at the same time and day each week.

My first session

It is important you feel that your counsellor, and the type of counselling, is right for you. Therefore your 'first session' would be a chance for us to meet, for you to share what has brought you to counselling and for you to ask any questions you may have. We would also use the session to establish if psychodynamic counselling suits your needs.
