About me

I have been counselling for over fifteen years. First as a volunteer counsellor on a phone line and then with various organisations. I currently work with a cancer charity and a low-cost counselling service for older adults as well as having my own private practice for individuals and couples. My experience to date includes working with a local mediation service - counselling couples and individuals, the NHS, various charities and schools.

I view myself as a holistic counsellor as I am interested in the whole person. I have a flexible counselling approach and will select the approach I think is best for you as a person and the issue you are bringing. I have been trained as an integrative counsellor and in couple counselling. I offer short-term and long-term counselling and am happy to meet with you for a free non-obligatory meeting so that you can meet me and find out more about how counselling works.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) adhering to their ethical framework (code of practice). As a counsellor we are expected to have continued support and training which I fully endorse. I have my own counselling room close to Chelmsford, Brentwood, Billericay and surrounding areas.
