About me and my therapy practice
The core of my work is about our relationship. The trust that is built and my respect and unconditional positive regard I have and show. I work using many different psychological theories and offer these depending on what my client is presenting concern is.
I draw from experience of working in a sexual violence centre for many years, a mental health charity, comprehensive and special schools and currently in the NHS with palliative, oncology and bereavement.
I am an accredited member of the BACP and I follow there ethical guidelines and framework. I have regular supervision. I update my safeguarding training accordingly and my continued professional development.
My practise is based in Leigh-on-Sea. Parking is available. My room is bright, comfortable and confidential.
I offer a face to face, online or telephone counselling sessions.
