About me and my therapy practice
As a qualified, highly empathetic counsellor with a wide range of experience I am trained to understand how past experiences and current behaviour may be linked. My strengths lie in my capacity to non-judgementally relate to my clients, instilling a feeling of being heard and understood. This ability creates a valuable, therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe to identify and work through their current difficulties with me.
My role is not about telling you what to do but to work with you to explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to understand where they may have come from and how they may affect your life and relationships in the here and now. Through the insight gained comes the opportunity for change.
Alongside my private practice, I also work as a Staff Counsellor for a large public-sector organisation providing short term counselling to employees. I have also worked as an Honorary Psychotherapist within the NHS as well as for a local children’s charity providing counselling to parents of children with emotional difficulties. I have also worked for a charitable organisation delivering time unlimited, affordable counselling to adults.
My private practice is conveniently located three miles from Braintree and Witham and mid-way between Chelmsford and Colchester. I offer evening and daytime appointments from my standalone, air conditioned consulting room, as well as free parking.
After an initial consultation which is chargeable, should we decide to work together, the first full session will be free of charge.
