Special areas of interest include anxiety, stress and depression, as well as working with men and the LGBTQIA + community.
Perhaps you're feeling down or anxious, maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Therapy I offer represents a safe, accepting, confidential space to look at whatever issues you may be facing right now, and find a way forwards. I can offer a chance to be heard and seen, an opportunity to work through your thoughts and feelings, and a time to develop new skills. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support.

I have a down-to-earth approach to therapy, and my natural curiosity leads me to ask questions which help me understand more about you and how you work. I have worked with clients who have experienced abuse, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, cultural issues, depression, discrimination, feeling suicidal, gender and sexuality issues, intercultural adjustment, racism, relationship difficulties (personal or work-related), self-harm, separation/divorce, sexual violence, stress, trauma and workplace bullying. Some issues brought to me by couples are infidelity, communication, low libido and sexual dysfunctions.

“Mental Health problems do not define who you are, they are something you experience”. Beginning a therapeutic journey can be frightening, I provide a safe, confidential space to help people explore and understand their thoughts and the way it influences their behaviour. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy for mental health conditions and has many benefits over other forms of therapy. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts and behaviour are connected and can been applied successfully to a wide range of mental ill health, including depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Firstly, I want to acknowledge your courage in seeking help. Maybe you are experiencing overwhelming anxiety, sadness, depression, hopelessness, pain of loss, panic, anger, or feeling powerless? I believe your thoughts and emotions deserve to be heard, respected and received with care, in order that together we can explore them so you can understand them. I combine my professional integrative training with diverse experience and insight, working non-judgementally with genuine warmth. In a calm, comfy environment we will work together to enable you to leave unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behaviours behind.

I use an integrative approach as I do not believe that one style fits all. This means that I will suggest utilising the most appropriate approach according to individual needs and wants. The main approaches I work with, but not limited to, are TA (Transactional Analysis), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Humanistic Therapies. I am also a qualified Europe and UK EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) therapist, a treatment with great success for different types of trauma, PTSD, assaults, rape, phobias, illness, injury, anxiety, self-esteem, stage fright/ performance/ tests and relationship issues.

Are you experiencing poor concentration, distraction, anxiety, memory problems, brain fog, insomnia or indecision? I work with high ability individuals who want to optimise their brain health and wellbeing. They are usually 'knowledge workers' - senior professionals, medics, lawyers, scientists, engineers, or C-suite staff who have a lot relying on their concentration, focus, decision-making, memory, emotional agility, psychological flexibility and cognitive ability. These important functions can be negatively affected by stress, neurodivergence (ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia), hormonal changes and illness such as Covid.

I have one to one, online or in person 50 minute counselling sessions available. Somewhere you can speak in confidence about what you're finding challenging and be listened to sensitively and without judgment. May be its anxiety, confidence or esteem, health concerns, loss or grief that's troubling you or perhaps you're looking for a culturally safe space to talk about relationships, racism, discrimination or stereotyping? Whatever your circumstances and whatever your issue, you'll be heard and respected in our sessions and if you're looking for things to be different we'll work together to make those changes happen.

Are you struggling with the stresses and strains that family, friendship, and/ or work life can bring and unsure what to do? Life is not always easy or straightforward, our lives can become challenging at times, causing us to feel overwhelmed with an array of complex emotions which can have an impact on our daily lives. Very often we don’t have someone that we can completely share our innermost thoughts and feelings with so having someone who is a trained professional, allows the opportunity to open up and confide in. I trust that I am able to provide a safe, non-judgemental space to work collaboratively with you.

I try to make therapy as available to as many people as I possible can. The cost of therapy can be quite steep so I keep my prices as low as I can so that more can access it. Therapy is about getting to where you want to be by making your own unique road map, so that you can use it again in the future if need be. I'm an Addiction Psychologist by trade, with 18 years of private practise behind me, but a lot of my work is helping many different age groups with problems such as OCD and PTSD etc. Please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat to see if i can be any help to you.

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.

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.

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.
