You shouldn’t have to struggle alone with grief and trauma after problems like infertility, pregnancy loss, a difficult birth, depression or anxiety in early motherhood. Leaving you feeling distressed, lost and overwhelmed by how your parenting journey turned out. This isn't how you imagined this time of your life would be, and it doesn't have to feel like this.
I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist. I have 16 years counselling experience and am currently also working with several other counselling charities, including Mind. I have extensive experience of working with victims of crime, including supporting people affected by domestic abuse, stalking and also homicide. I believe my client is the expert in his or her own feelings and experience, and I help to facilitate and empower my clients to explore any issues my client has in a confidential non judgemental space, with the hope for acceptance, understanding and to move forwards with their life.
Everyone is an individual who experiences life and the issues it throws, in very different ways. No 'one' sure way fits all - that is my Moto. We are individuals. Whatever anyone is feeling they shouldn't believe that they can "just cope" because everyone else seems to be doing ok. Its all relative! Depression/anxiety/stress/ lack of self worth and esteem are all problems in todays society and many suffer in silence. You don't need to. Often by talking and getting your problems out in the open is the first step to healing. Their voice to be heard and feelings to be listened to. Trust and the therapeutic relationship are key.
I help people have better relationships with themselves and those around them. If you feel that your 'emotional suitcase' has become too heavy to lift, life may therefore feel overwhelming, relationships may feel strained or are breaking down, you may feel anxious, depressed, angry, lost or stuck. You may even have an inner voice that is really mean. All of this may create conflict, distance and pain, taking you away from yourself and those around you. Making sense of ourselves and the world begins to get really difficult. You may need some help to unpack that case, sort through the contents and find clarity.
Our aim at the Chelmsford Counselling and Therapy Centre is to inspire growth , help clients bring about change leading to self - fulfilment. I work along side a group of Counsellors and Therapists so be can be very responsive to client needs. We work with adults, children as well as couples.
