Person-Centred Counselling in Colchester, Essex
Convenient for Chelmsford, Braintree and South Suffolk

"Helping you to become the best version of you"

I am based in south-west Colchester, Essex, and offer person-centred counseling as well as CBT and IPT.

Counselling is a form of talking therapy that supports and encourages the client to talk about and explore their problems and feelings in a confidential environment.

Counsellor and client

A counsellor has been trained to offer the core conditions that will ensure that the client feels understood, accepted and safe. Whilst the term counselling is used to describe talking therapies in general it is a type of therapeutic intervention in its own right.

How Counselling Can Help

Counselling is aimed at helping you face and deal with any emotional issues that are making you feel distressed or uncomfortable. It provides you with a safe and dependable place for you to discuss and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support and guide you in a non-judgemental way that will allow you find your own insights into and understanding of your problems. In this way you will be able to find your own solutions and put them into practice.

What Counselling Can Help With

  • Cope with a bereavement or loss due to a relationship breakdown
  • Cope with stress related to life changes such as redundancy or work-related issues
  • Explore issues such as sexual identity
  • Deal with issues which are preventing you reaching your full potential
  • Deal with feelings of depression or sadness in order to develop a more positive outlook on life
  • Deal with feelings of anxiety which lead to worry
  • Gain a better understanding of yourself and your problems
  • Feel more confident
  • Develop a better understanding of other people's points of view

What to Expect

Because counselling encourages you to face difficult or painful feelings, you can feel worse for a while, but with the help and support of the counsellor you will gradually start to feel better. On average it can take a number of sessions before you start to see the benefit so it is important that you remain committed.

During the session, the counsellor will facilitate you to explore and express your feelings. In doing so you will begin to gain a deeper understanding of your emotions and be able to identify solutions to your problems.

It is extremely beneficial to have a space and time where you are able to share your fears and concerns with someone who is able to acknowledge them and help you reach a solution.

Initially you will be offered up to six sessions at which point your progress will be reviewed and together you will decide on whether you need further sessions. The duration of your treatment will be entirely up to you.


The cost of person-centred counselling is £45 per hour. Some concessions are available.

Session length: 1 hour.
