Clients describe the space I create as an 'anchor', a caring environment and place of safety. I bring commitment and a positive approach to our work. Together, we will find hope and courage so you can move forward. I am known for being calming, gentle and resilient, creating a safe space for you to explore whatever you may choose to bring. I have an ability to reach out and connect at depth with people who are finding life a struggle, suffering and experiencing sadness. I consider it a privilege to work alongside my clients at these times, providing support and enabling insight, whilst they work through whatever is hurting them.

Have you reached a point where you sense you just can’t carry on feeling this way? Maybe it’s a recent breakup, or a build up of feelings that’s just all become too much to cope with on your own. Perhaps you are carrying a silent pain that you wish the people around you could see. Maybe you are tired of not feeling understood by those closest to you. I wonder if you have lost your trust in others, and reaching out for help often feels impossible. I specialize in working with people to make sense of their past and how it is affecting the present. You are really not alone, and I would like to help, your feelings do matter.

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.

Life is tough, causing us psychological stress and difficulties from relationships, families, and bereavement are just a few examples. Sometimes the thought of therapy can be scary. My therapy style is empathic, warm, and non-judgemental. I believe in treating my clients with confidentiality, respect, sensitivity, compassion, and empathy. I offer the support of a therapeutic relationship to help my clients to better understand their feelings thoughts, and behaviors to find positive changes forward to living life more fully.

You know something isn’t right in your life, but you don’t quite know where to begin to get help. Maybe the idea of speaking with somebody feels a little daunting, or you’re concerned you won’t be able to find the words, or they won’t understand where you’re coming from. This is absolutely normal, and is what most people feel before the call a therapist to get help. Even if you’ve been to counselling and psychotherapy before, the thought of explaining your story yet again might fill you with dread. What you could really do with is somebody that gets it, that you can feel comfortable with, that can help you feel understood, quickly.

You're a sensitive, thoughtful person. In so many ways you know you should feel lucky to have achieved what you have. But lately you've been feeling worried, overwhelmed and sometimes a bit hopeless. And your sensitivity - which could be your superpower - instead seems to only make you feel worse. You feel like you should be able to sort yourself out and carry on - but deep inside a small inner voice is calling out that it needs to be honoured and heard. You long to find somewhere that you can feel truly listened to and understood. Where it's okay that you're a complex person, full of contradictions and questions.

I practise an integrative, person-centred approach which focuses on the relationship between counsellor and client.

A warm, relational approach is the foundation of my work with children, young people and their parents. As an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, I aim to enable each person to communicate and feel understood from the depth of their experience. This means finding each person's unique ways of expressing themselves, and tailoring my technique to meet them "where they're at". I create a safe space so that children and young people are able to bring their most painful feelings and thoughts out into the room with me. At the same time, humour and fun are important elements of my work.

Do you need someone to listen? Do you feel you’re not heard or seen? Do you feel misunderstood, to blame, angry, sad, anxious, disillusioned? Is family life, work or other relationships getting too much to cope with? Throughout life, we are often left with feelings of low self worth, anger, sadness or may feel powerless. We can become confused about who we are, what we need and where life is taking us. This accumulation over many years blinds us to who we really are and sometimes we need help to find out. I believe I can help you.

If you're struggling to control something in your life or a part of yourself, IFS is a great way to bring about change. It may be a behaviour that you're trying to manage (perhaps around food, gambling, gaming, sex or shopping) or an emotion that threatens to overwhelm you just when you don't want it to (such as anxiety or anger). IFS (Internal Family Systems) therapy works with each and every part of your neurophysiological system, so that you can truly feel calmly in charge of yourself and no longer overwhelmed by impulses and emotions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in CO7?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in CO7 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
