I hold a certificate in Trauma Focused Therapy.
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.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and offer therapy to adults and young people (min. age 18). My core belief is that everyone is capable and deserving of positive change in their life. I am trained in a number of therapeutic modalities. I find that, just as each individual is unique, so too is the therapeutic experience. I am able to tailor these techniques to meet your individual needs. The therapeutic relationship is very much an alliance; one in which we can work collectively to explore your sense of self and empower you to gain the tools and awareness you need to make positive changes in your life.

This may be your first time seeking support from a counsellor, or you may have already experienced counselling before.

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.

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 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.

Life can be unpredictable and often things are put in our paths that have an impact on our psychological & Emotional wellbeing. Sometimes these issues can take their toll and cause us pain and suffering, partly due to pushing them to the back of our minds, bottling up or just trying to ignore them in the hope they may just go away. Quite often we try to maintain a brave face and show the world that we can cope, but the reality is, when we ignore difficult experiences, feelings and thoughts they are trapped inside. Never really disappearing, they stay just in the background within continuing to impact our view of self & our world.

“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.

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.
