I draw upon my training and experience in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy ( DBT ) to work with dual diagnosis, borderline personality disorder or other mental health problems which may threaten personal well-being, relationships safety or work.
I work with those struggling with self-destructive behaviour, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder and eating disorders. By uniting the person-centred approach alongside dialectical behavioural therapy ( DBT ) I work alongside you within the therapeutic relationship, practising new life skills seeking to identify, accept and change negative thinking patterns by looking at four key areas: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation and Interpersonal Relationships. The aim is to support individuals find new ways to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in life.

Are you struggling with aspects of your life? You may have already tried to talk about it with friends and family but you still feel unresolved. You might have issues that you feel you can only talk about in a safe and confidential space. There may be times when you feel absolutely fine but there are times when you can't cope from within and you don't understand it. We push difficult issues deep into our unconscious but it still influences our conscious lives. Are there significant events from your childhood that you can't find peace with in your present day? This can leave you feeling despair like you have no control.

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 Chelmsford?
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 Chelmsford 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.
