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.

Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, not able to think clearly, feeling like something isn't right & want to feel better. Reading this, is your first big step forward to feeling better. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you have a greater awareness about yourself, a chance to talk to someone about the things in your life that don't make sense or what makes you angry, sad or afraid. I have many years experience working with anxiety & depression, , panic, relationships, aging, addiction, suicidal thoughts, trauma, abuse, along with transgender, gender dysphoria and more. I am only 8 miles from Ipswich. 9 miles from Colchester.

Anxiety can be exhausting. If you want to take back control and work in a tailored way to suit your personality, you are welcome to a free 30 minute consultation so we can discuss your needs & how I work. If your anxiety levels are high right now, we will usually work on bringing that down first (think of it as Psychological First Aid), then if you want to look at what underlies your anxiety/issues, we can do this much more easily when you're less stressed out and figure out the best way to address these.

Anxiety and stress rob us of our confidence and make life feel too much. You may find yourself struggling or feeling inadequate. You might blame yourself for not coping as well as you think you should. Maybe you doubt yourself or tend to expect the worst. Life might feel hard to enjoy or have lost its pleasure. These are are all un-talked about side effects of anxiety and stress. Prolonged anxiety or stress takes its toll on us both physically and emotionally. We might suffer from: worry, panic, poor sleep, tiredness, muscle tension, trouble concentrating and feel unable to relax.

My core purpose is to increase my clients’ emotional and behavioural mastery of the challenges of change. Change is an unplanned, unexpected event whose impact upon us, our families and our lives is momentous. It may seem to us that the event has shattered our identity and impaired our sense of self-hood and continuity. We may feel as if we no longer recognise ourselves as the person that we were before the change-event occurred.

My style varies as an integrative therapist as I am able to use many different therapeutic approaches depending on the presenting issue. I have an enhanced DBS for Adults & Children.

Sometimes, children and young people need a little extra support to guide them through difficult times in their lives. They may be encountering challenges and would benefit from talking in a safe and comfortable environment to explore feelings and worries. I offer a non judgemental counselling service in a warm & friendly atmosphere suited to young people. I have been counselling children & young people for 10 years. Children can relate to me and I strive to do my best for them. I’m able to adapt my counselling style to suit clients' individual needs (eg I use play & art when working with young children to support them effectively)

I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and I am a counselling supervisor. I work a lot with childhood trauma and also the 'quarter life crisis' - people in their late 20s early 30s who are struggling with past, present and future issues. Perhaps you aren't quite sure what the issue is or don't feel that it's 'bad' enough to seek help? I will take it seriously and won't dismiss you.

Life can feel very difficult at times; we all know that ups and downs in life is to be expected. Sometimes though, life can start to feel too difficult and painful feelings can become overwhelming. There could be many reasons for this, some more obvious to us than others, a bereavement for example or a difficult relationship. Sometimes it does not feel obvious or clear what the problem is and even less clear how to resolve or move on from it. We can, as humans, become stuck: stuck in difficult feelings, stuck in difficult relationships, jobs,stuck in understanding ourselves. Feeling stuck can feel incredibly isolating.

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.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Colchester or for a Colchester online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in Colchester are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in Colchester who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in Colchester who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Colchester you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Colchester and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Colchester or family therapy in Colchester.
