Hello, I am a whole person practitioner meaning I have a Holistic approach to Counselling. I am an Integrative Psychotherapist which means I am qualified in more than one model of Psychotherapy.
I offer a personalised therapy tailored to the individual and where you 'see' yourself in the present. I have a creative approach helping to build a strong, safe and supportive base which is both accepting and honest, from which recovery and growth can flourish.
I provide short term counselling for life issues and longer term Psychotherapy for unhelpful patterns of behaviour and deeper seated problems.
Where to find me: I work from 3 locations.
Time & Space, Chigborough Farm close to Maldon. A relaxing rural environment with outside space, Talk & Walk Counselling option, Therapy dog, free parking and farm facilities including a café.
Braintree, Unit 6 New Walthambury House Anglia Way CM7 3RG. A more traditional clinic environment, bright and sunny with a private garden, minutes from the town and free parking.
Chelmsford Counselling Centre Moulsham Street, cosy comfy rooms at the heart of Chelmsford, with a 'paying' car park close by.
