About Me: 

 

My passion for helping and supporting people came from working in Human Resources for several years. Having a natural compassion and empathy for people seemed to resonate with others, making me an approachable person to open up to.  Whatever the issue was, whether work related or personal, people knew they would be treated with respect and dignity and be really listened to.

Ultimately, this led me to re-train and qualify as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist where I knew I'd found my niche.

I have a private practice with comfortable counselling rooms in Braintree and Chelmsford in Essex and I also volunteer at a local hospice offering bereavement support to clients who have lost a loved one.  Sessions are available face to face, online or by phone.

Outside of work, I love writing, nature, walking and curling up with a good book, a cuppa and a biscuit ......or two.
