Learn More About Me

Experienced, Empathic Counselling

I am a BACP registered Counsellor, Supervisor and a Facilitator based in Bowers Gifford, Essex. 

I have over 7 years experience in working on a one to one basis specifically in the area of trauma. 

I work in an integrative way meaning that I can mould the sessions around you - putting you completely at the forefront of the therapeutic experience.

I know that talking to a professional about the intimate details of your life can feel daunting. Taking the first step is hard, but imagine yourself a year from now!

I hold indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS.

Client well-being and confidentiality are at the forefront of my practice and, to that end, the rooms are comfortable, secured by electric gates and intercom entry. There is free parking.

Integrative Approach

Support That Makes a Difference

 

Relationships

Embrace Life’s Challenges

When we are suffering internally no one can see it. Consequently our relationships might suffer. That may be our relationships with work colleagues, with family, friends, intimate partners. Most importantly, it's our relationship with ourselves that can cause pain and confusion. Why not come and find out who you really are and what you really want?

What is Trauma?

Psychological Trauma: The Bodies Reaction To A Specific or Series of  Distressing Events

Trauma is a word that is often used these days for almost everything!

However real trauma can be debilitating and prevent you from living a full and meaningful life. Whether that's because of a significant break up, accident, loss or the long term effects of domestic abuse, sexual abuse or child sexual abuse, I am able to work through the after effects with you.

Recovery From Abuse

Finding the Real You

I work with all genders.

Abuse strips us of our self esteem, confidence and identity. It is replaced with the devastation of shame, blame and guilt. We can move through this and shed those negative thoughts and feelings of worthlessness. You CAN become more.

Supervision

Supervision is an essential part of any practice. 

I like to ensure that I work in a congruent, challenging way to ensure that both supervisee and client are kept safe and able to flourish.

Individuals £40 - £60 per 50 minute session.
