Counselling and Psychotherapy

EMDR for Trauma and PTSD

Quote for the month:

“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings” Lao Tau


Change, any change, will often trigger anxiety, stress, a sense of loss, relational problems, even depression. And yet, this is often an opportunity for personal growth - to find fulfillment, peace, happiness, whatever we need to live life well. That's what counselling and psychotherapy can help with....

- Alleviating and getting rid of anxiety and depression
- Helping you make changes in your personal relationships
- Coping with work-place stress and helping to understand why and then make changes
- Help to cope with loss and grief - of a partner, parent, child
- Trauma - single incidents or lifetime experiences


I offer a confidential, supportive and caring space for you to explore what is troubling you so that you can make sense of your life. I have many years experience of working with issues that usually effect all of us at one time or another. These include:

- depression,
- anxiety,
- stress,
- abuse,
- trauma,
- dissociation
- ptsd and complex ptsd
- self-worth
....and many other issues that may prevent you from living a full and fulfilling life.

Whether you are looking for short-term support or want to explore deeper issues, I am experienced in working with a wide range of symptoms from anxiety, depression, low self-worth and self-esteem, childhood abuse and trauma. Please see the page on Counselling and Psychotherapy

My counselling and psychotherapy practice is in Brentwood which is close to Billericay, Shenfield and Chelmsford areas of Essex. I am ideally placed near Brentwood station for easy access to and from Chelmsford, Romford in Essex and London. I also have a practice in London, near Paddington/Maida Vale/Warwick Avenue/Little Venice, within walking distance of Warwick Avenue and Paddington Underground stations, making it easy to travel from the West End, the City and West London.
