About me and my therapy practice
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Managing life's challenges and our mental health can be overwhelming. Whether it's anxiety, depression, coping with loss or just working out what's wrong and why we're feeling sad, we sometimes need help with our thoughts and feelings. Working online or in person in Brightlingsea, Essex (between Colchester and Clacton) I work with adult individuals to help them gently explore what's troubling them and to find a way forward.
You may be taking your first steps towards getting the support you need. Finding the right counsellor and getting started isn't always easy. I invite you to book a short free consultation on the phone or video call. You can let me know a little about why you're looking for a therapist and find out about working with me. I look forward to meeting you.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use a combination of therapeutic approaches to best support you. My own therapeutic journey helped me to work through a number of significant losses and periods of depression. That process led me to become a counsellor and is something that is really important to me. I am also a qualified and experienced coach.
My first session
The first session is an assessment where we take the opportunity to review our counselling agreement and for me to find out more about you. After the assessment we'll both be able to reflect and decide if we feel we are a good 'match' and whether to continue with further counselling sessions.
