Counselling Basildon

- I am currently unavailable - 

Do you need a safe space to explore your difficult thoughts and feelings? Are you having problems and feel you need someone not attached to you personally, to talk to? Take the first step and contact me for a professional confidential service. 


I am a qualified counsellor, and member of the BACP. I have experience working with many kinds of clients with different issues, but most of my practise has been working with parents and adolescents who are experiencing problems with antisocial behaviour, substance use, criminal behaviour, self harm, bereavement, relationship breakdowns. I have experience working with Essex Youth Offending Service, in partnership with Essex Social Care as a Multi Systemic Therapist, Papworth Trust. 


I am based in Basildon but able to travel to you, and I am able to offer sessions in your home when appropriate. All we need is an undisturbed hour. This means you do not have to travel, and offers more flexibility in terms of scheduling. If you are unable or unwilling to have sessions at home we can book a room locally, in a leisure centre, library or other venue. I have daytime and evening availability, and some weekend availability. 


I can offer short term therapy (up to 10 sessions) and also longer term therapy.
Sessions last 50 minutes and I would hope to see you weekly.


My service is confidential, with exceptions to serious criminal activity, serious harm to self or harm to another. I receive monthly supervision with an experienced counsellor, where clients may be anonymously discussed.


I am happy to answer any questions you might have, so make the first step and contact me.

I have trained in Therapeutic Counselling which is Person Centred, I also have experience with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy, Multi Systemic Therapy and Transactional Analysis. 


My expertise is in working with adolescents and family members where adolescents behaviour is impacting on the family dynamics. This could be substance use, antisocial or criminal behaviour, not attending school. aggression, violence, relationship breakdown, going missing, self harm. 


I have also treated children and adults experiencing bereavment, LGBT issues, divorce.


Many clients come to me with anxiety, depression and stress. With all clients the amount of sessions varies, however I have found 6-8 sessions to be effective in helping a client explore their issues, provide strategies and exercises that will help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, repair relationship issues such as poor communication, build confidence and esteem.
