About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor who is passionate about the possibility for change through counselling.  My main approach is psychodynamic counselling which looks at how our past experiences may influence our present lives.  I will work with you, exploring your thoughts and feelings to try and make sense of what is happening for you.   

I believe that there are moments in life when we can all benefit from talking and being really listened to by another. For some this may be because there has been some specific event that is causing difficulty. For others it could be due to thoughts or feelings that are difficult to understand. I will listen with care and compassion to whatever you wish to talk about. No matter how big or small you may think your problem is; if you and your life are being affected by something, counselling can really help.

In my private practice I offer counselling to adults, young people and couples.  I also work as a school counsellor with a national charity, Place2Be.  I have a number of years experience working as an Honorary Psychotherapist within the mental health team at Essex Partnership University NHS Trust and have also worked as a Counsellor at Chelmsford Counselling Foundation.

I offer daytime and evening appointments from a tranquil consultation room in Chelmsford and from a vibrant health and wellbeing centre in Heybridge, Maldon. 

Anyone thinking about counselling is encouraged to get in touch and come along for an initial appointment before making a decision.
