About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my page and a warm welcome. Do you need someone to talk to? Do you feel life is challenging, are you feeling anxious, sad, stressed, angry, maybe feel like you’re not coping with life and not sure why? Or are you feeling stuck, not sure what way to turn? I am a compassionate person-centered counsellor who will provide you with a safe space where we can explore anxieties, thoughts, feelings and concerns together at your own pace. It is a place where you can feel supported whilst you work through difficult or painful problems you may have found too hard to face by yourself or have been unable to talk to family & friends about.

As well as working with a wide range of issues I do specialise in loss, grief and bereavement. Whether it was last week or ten year's ago it can be helpful and healing to talk to someone that can help you make sense of your feelings. This can be due to a loss of anything including loss of a loved one, a pet, a job, friendship, relationship, home or physical health.  Also loss of freedom and life as you knew it through Covid and any effects you have now.

It is so important to find the right counsellor so I offer a free initial session to establish whether I am the right counsellor for you.    I offer face to face counselling in Buckhurst Hill, Barkingside and Harold Wood also Zoom and telephone counselling. Life can be busy so I can fit in with you with sessions in the evenings or weekends along with day time sessions. 

Practice description

I offer telephone, Zoom and face to face sessions.  Face to face sessions are at Harold Wood, Buckhurst Hill  and Barkingside

Sessions are £60 each and last for 50 minutes.

I offer an initial free 15 minute assessment which will be on the telephone.

At this initial assessment it is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions and me to get to know a bit more about you,  We can use this assessment to see how you feel about working with me and to get an idea of what you want to come to counselling for. 

 For the first full session, payment is requested in advance to secure the first appointment.

My first session

All sessions will last 50 minutes. Our first assessment chat will be for up to 15 minutes and there is no charge, this will enable you to decide whether you feel that we can work together. This will give you the chance to talk about what is troubling you and to think about what you expect from counselling.
