Location: Billericay

My key skill is in listening…that’s really listening and hearing, seeing you, empathising with your feelings. It’s then my role to facilitate you in finding your own solutions, helping you increase your own self-awareness and realisation that you have choices.
My main way of working is based on the Integrative model and I am also able to use a wide range of techniques and theories, tailoring my approach to suit you. Some examples include Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamics, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy . In addition, I am a qualified hypnotherapist and find this can often complement our counselling / psychotherapy work.
I offer my services on a face-to-face basis, online (via Zoom), telephone or via messaging services for short, medium or long term therapy. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
