About Me: 

I'm a fully qualified and accredited therapist with a number of years experience.

 

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 work related or if they were experiencing personal problem, people knew they could talk to me in confidence and would be really listened to.

It was important to me to help people leave the office in a better place than when they walked in.  This ultimately this led me to
re-train and qualify as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist, where I could really support others professionally.

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.  

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