The curious paradox is that when I accept
myself just as I am, then I can change.Carl Rogers
Last 4 years I have been living with my family in Loughton.

Most of my experience consists of working with the adults, in different settings. Previously working in the agency, I have my own practise now and through the years I worked with all kinds of issues, as listed below, always supporting and promoting higher confidence and good mental health and well being, and generally happier way of life.
I also worked at schools with children and young people
of all ages from diverse cultural backgrounds, working through their relational, teenage issues and anxieties relating to difficult family circumstances or exam stress. I have been DBS checked as a school counsellor.
Areas of counselling the adults I am particularly
•Stress (work related or other), and Anxiety
•Redundancy, Career and life choices
•Addiction or Eating disorders
•Panic attacks and OCD •Bereavement & loss
•Depression and Feeling sad & low
•Family concerns and Relationship issues
I carry out various CPD training courses (CPD –
Continued Professional Development) on a regular
basis to keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
I work mainly with person-centred approach in a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental manner. My approach is very personal and every counselling therapy is tailored according to the needs of the client. When I find it helpful, I at times use tools from other modalities of counselling. As to the speed, we can move in the pace that is just comfortable for you and discuss only things you want to bring up in the sessions, there is no push at all.
By us working together, I would like to support you to
find more understanding and meaning in your life, to help you move forward with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I believe that each person has the ability to take responsibility for themselves and to change and grow towards their own, full potential. I am privileged to be a facilitator of such growth, which is, for me, fascinating to watch.
If you would like to find out more, you can contact me directly via phone or email,
and we can book an appointment to discuss things of your concern. I can usually
see clients within a week of their enquiry.
