Things come to a head in February and I knew I needed to seek help I’d tried everything I could over the years but always ended up in the same position I started and aggression started to set in. Thoughts of ending it all where becoming a weekly occurrence. I decided to go with dot after our initial phone call and after our first appointment she Had pointed me in the direction of a book that helped me understand Who I was and why I behaved the way I did. We than spent a few weeks and months unearthing all the things I had buried from a Poverty stricken childhood and being bullied to doing things I was ashamed of. After a couple of havening sessions and weekly sessions of just talking things thru those little demons where put to bed for good. Now is the time for self nurturing which dot has been great on helping me with and always challenging Me when I put others first or downplay my own worth. 8 months on I now have my own limited company that has gone exceptionally well and I...

Dot understood where I was coming from she put me at ease and made no judgement. I was able to speak freely and learned a lot about myself.

Qualified, Registered & Professional

I am a professional, fully qualified BACP registered Counsellor and Certified Havening Practitioner. I adopt an integrative approach that enables me to adapt my practice to suit your unique needs and provide the best therapeutic help for you.

I have over 20 years experience, working for a large public limited company, providing both professional and personal development. This included coaching, training, skills development, mentoring and professional one to one counselling.

More recently, I have worked with The London Borough of Ealing and Southend’s Local Authority; providing a range of support. I have also provided counselling services for The Early Help Family Support Team (Southend) and a women's refuge in Chelmsford.  

Currently,  as well as operating my own practice I work in partnership with a company offering wellbeing services to the motor industry. I also work with an  organisation that provides counselling for adults in South Essex. We cover many areas including; anxiety, relationship issues, depression, bereavement, trauma, panic disorder, low self esteem/confidence, feeling sad, phobias, family issues, affairs, betrayals, separation/divorce, bullying, menopause, abuse, eating disorders and more.

My passion is mental wellbeing. In order to be the best counsellor I can be I have worked hard to gain an understanding of psychotherapy and the neuroscience that is involved in mental disturbance. I have also trained in the ground breaking Havening Technique. I have found this extremely  beneficial in many areas, for example when working with clients to relieve the emotional effects of encoded trauma (historic or recent). I also offer clients an opportunity to learn how to communicate with their body in it's own biosymbolic language by accessing their unique "operating instructions" for interpreting their world. This helps to improve their sense of self, define what's really possible for them and puts them back in the driving seat.

I provide confidential counselling in a relaxed, safe and comfortable environment. Sessions are charged at £45 for 50 minutes.

I look forward to meeting you.
