About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I am Polly, a person-centred counsellor offering support and help in a confidential and calm place. I am here to help if you are struggling with life or feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. I work with both young people and adults specialising in loss, bereavement and relationships.
Sometimes it can be difficult to talk about our problems and worries with family and friends. My approach is to work alongside you, providing you with a welcoming space where you can talk about whatever you wish to, in confidence. So if you're feeling isolated and have no one else to talk to, or perhaps you are finding it tough to express your thoughts with your loved ones, therapy can be the solution.
The relationship with your therapist is key in helping you make the change you wish for in yourself. It is important you feel comfortable, supported and at ease with whomever you choose to help you. However daunting this may seem, you have already taken the first step forward. Working together we can find the solutions you are looking for in your life.
I can listen to you and provide the support you might be looking for. Perhaps you feel stuck, angry, confused or hurt. If so, I can give you the time to share these difficult feelings and emotions in a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space. I believe everyone has the potential to move forward with their lives. You and I can work together exploring relationships, dynamics and feelings so that changes can be found to make your life feel right again, as it should.
I offer both short and long-term therapy from my practice in Colchester. If you would like to contact me to make an initial appointment to discuss your issues to see whether we get along, please contact me on 07716 917342.
