I'm a fully qualified and accredited therapist with a number of years experience and have a private practice in Braintree and Chelmsford. I also volunteer at Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford, as a Bereavement Counsellor, offering support to clients who have lost a loved one and am a Mental Health First Aider. 

 

My passion for helping and supporting people came from working in Human Resources for many years. Having a natural compassion and empathy for people and being an approachable person to open up to, led me to being a go to person when people felt troubled. Whatever the person's issue was, whether it was work related or if they were experiencing personal problems that were affecting them at work, people knew they could talk to me in confidence and I would do my best to help them.  Having been in the corporate world for many years, I have a broad experience of how the work environment can impact on a person's wellbeing.

 

I found it so personally rewarding when the person left our meeting in a better state than when they walked in, that I felt drawn to follow a different path outside the corporate world.  I spent a number of years retraining and qualified as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist and have had the privilege of working with many clients who have successfully found their own way forward.

It can be a painful and challenging experience to talk about the reason you came to therapy, but you can be assured that empathy and compassion, dignity and respect, is at the heart of what I do and how I work.
