About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist working at HMP Chelmsford with male offenders across the prison. I run my private practice working with adults and young people struggling with a range of difficulties from depression, bereavement, anxiety, relationship difficulties, family issues and low self-esteem. I aim to offer a warm and collaborative relationship, allowing you to support yourself better, whilst developing new self-awareness and coping strategies.
As an Integrative counsellor I bring together ideas and ways of working from several schools of thought. Together these different perspectives enable me relate to each person from a holistic viewpoint, meaning I pay attention to the many different ways in which human experiences are expressed - consciously, unconsciously, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Working in a flexible way, I tailor my approach in response to each unique individual.
Alongside private practice, my experience also derives from my position within the NHS and counselling with the mental health charity MIND.https://www.cpslmind.org.uk/. Currently a Full-time High Intensity IAPT practitioner delivering 1:1 counselling and group counselling with a CBT modality to prisoners.
