I became a counsellor in my early forties, having spent 20 years working in Banking and finance and the health industries. This means that I am able to bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling work, which I believe is very important for a counsellor. I currently have a private practice in Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea in Essex and work as a Counsellor in a Secondary School.

I also work with companies such as Mind, YMCA, and The Police Firearms Association offering counselling and Supervision. I  co-founded The Aspirations Program charity offering a twelve week abstinenced based recovery program for addiction which is trauma informed, the first of its kind in Southend. I also offer Supervision for Counsellors as well.

I am trained in integrative counselling this means I use a blend of approaches from CBT, psychodynamic, humanistic, Transactional Analysis to offer a full range of counselling techniques.


If you would like to consider counselling please contact me for a free initial consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a professional Counsellor and Therapist, welcoming anyone seeking to help change their lives and improve upon their mental and spiritual well being. I have spent a considerable amount of time working with individuals to help them break the cycle of addiction and specialize in this area of work.
