We all encounter situations in our lives that are difficult to deal with, I aim to offer help and encouragement when you need it most. Whether you’re struggling to deal with the pressures of everyday life or you need extra support during a bereavement, I’m here for you.

As a qualified integrative Counsellor, I focus on providing a safe, supportive and confidential space to discuss your concerns and target any issues you’re facing.

Before starting my journey as a Counsellor, I worked for many years in the corporate world. Because of this I have a strong understanding of the challenges you can face in a pressurised work environment.

Based in North Essex I offer friendly and professional counselling from my private practice, for a range of issues you may be facing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly to discuss how I can help.
