Realising that you need help to discuss your difficulties can be a daunting prospect.  


Taking that first step can often take a while to build up to.


There are times when everyone needs help to work through the obstacles that life throws at us, or those within that keep us stuck.


I can offer long and short term counselling & psychotherapy to help with a wide range of issues.   


I work from my consulting room in Colchester, located just outside the town center, with free parking.  



My consulting room is located in the beautiful woodland location of

Kingsford Stables Therapy Centre.  The Centre is easily accessbile by car, with free parking.

What is making life difficult for you?

You are experiencing difficulties in your relationships.  Perhaps conflict or disconnection, maybe the end of a significant relationship?


You have had a diagnosis of anxiety and/or depression through your GP.  However, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) didn't work for you and you're looking for an alternative approach.  


You have lost a loved one.


You are struggling with anger.


You are experiencing panic attacks.


You have reached a crisis in your identity.  You are desperate to discover a more authentic sense of self.  

You are finding it hard to cope with a life limiting condition.

You are progressively at odds with yourself, feeling divided and confused.  Triggering difficult emotions, which you don't understand.


You are feeling stuck or sad.


You may not fully understand what it is that you need help with, but know that you can't do it alone anymore. 


"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset I don't find myself saying "soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner".  I don't try to control a sunset, I watch with awe as it unfolds".

Carl Rogers
