About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Sandra Dean and I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor (60 minute sessions) and Life Writing coach. I have been professionally trained in person-centred, Cognitive Behavioural and Psycho-dynamic theories. I also offer Expressive Writing Therapy, Life Writing workshops and the use of Mindfulness. Writing has been a therapy for me, so I offer my workshops for individuals and groups.

My room is in Rayleigh Essex, but I can also make arrangements to see my clients at their home (10 mile radius of Rayleigh, Essex). Please contact me to find out more. *Please note that Rayleigh attendance is NOT suitable for those with allergies to cats*

I am fully insured with public liability insurance.

My specialisms are working to beat depression, anxiety, stress, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, but I can work with any mental health issues. I also specialise in relationship issues, family dynamics, self-esteem and confidence issues and working with life changes that are all too often unwanted and negative. I have a lot of experience working with homelessness, and associated adversities as well.

I have campaigned for years against the stigma of mental health issues, and promote understanding, empathy and knowledge. I have written two memoirs based on mental health and a self-help book for overcoming depression and anxiety, and am well known in the field of mental health.

I had a lot of adversity in my younger years, for which I had various therapeutic help, and it was the realisation of how powerful talking therapies can be, that made me want to become a counsellor and help others as I was myself.
