About

Hello, and welcome. If you are struggling psychologically in any way, I am here to help you towards a more fulfilling life. Perhaps you've never felt 'good enough' even though you do what you feel is expected? Perhaps you feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed or alone? Perhaps your childhood is casting a shadow over your adult life? I am a qualified and experienced counsellor working with adults aged 18+, and I have experience of working with issues ranging from bereavement, loss and painful life phases to depression, anxiety, low confidence and self-esteem, anger and relationship problems. I also have specialist knowledge of autism.
My way of working is based on person-centred theory, with elements of CBT and psychodynamic thinking (attachment theory and transactional analysis). I allow you space and time to discover yourself as we go through the process, using my skills as relevant based on your changing needs. Based in Essex, I work with adults nationwide via secure video technology.
If you are suffering with your mental health your feelings are valid, whatever your background or situation. Taking the first step of reaching out to a therapist may not be easy, but you will have my full support every step of the way. As we progress through counselling, clients often gain in confidence that they can cope with life's challenges.
