You could be wondering why I am a therapist….. here’s a little bit about me I live in Essex with my family. I experienced my own trauma as a young adult and can empathise with how difficult it can be to overcome this. I had a long journey through therapy and have experienced how powerful it can be and the impact it has had on my life and relationships. Dealing with my own trauma has led me to qualify as a therapist.
As a therapist and the experience of being a single mother, I have a unique combination of skills and experiences that has made me a brilliant caregiver and support system for my clients. My life as a single mother has shaped me to be organised, resilient and adaptable. All these qualities are beneficial in my work as a therapist. It also allowed me to relate to and understand the challenges that clients may face in their own lives.
My passion is seeing individuals restore healthier relationships and supporting people live their lives to the fullest.
I am a strong believer that your life and relationships can get better! Yes, it will take work and time, but it is most definitely possible. I am here to help you make that happen.
My clients appreciate that I support them in their journey of healing and make them feel safe in therapy; but I also do not shy away from being directive, challenging a thought or belief that may be getting in the way of progress. I find it useful hearing about your relationships past and present as I believe that they hold many keys to your breakthroughs. I will provide tools and strategies when needed and perhaps even a book recommendation.
I feel privileged that the people I have counselled trust me at times in their life when they are going through personal distress with their feelings, thoughts and memories. Integrity and trust is very important to me and am committed to offering an honest, safe, respectful and confidential relationship in which we can work together.
