Hello & Welcome

Hi! My name is Ashleigh. I am an experienced, qualified counsellor based in Essex, UK. I am very passionate about mental health, counselling and psychotherapy and I absolutely love what I do. I consider myself to be a friendly, genuine person who is also diligent and empathic. I have a genuine desire to support others and I believe it is both rewarding and a privilege to truly listen and have the opportunity to get to know more about who you are. I think it is so important for people to have a safe, confidential setting to express themselves, feel heard and get the support they need.

I understand that the idea of counselling can be daunting, and I hope to offer a comfortable space where everything you share with me feels valid and safe to explore. A space that is accepting and free from judgement, where you are welcome to present authentically and as you truly are. I build trusting relationships with my clients based on mutual respect, honesty, and care. I put you at the centre of my work always, and focus on whatever you choose to bring.

How I Can Help You

I can help you to notice your strengths, understand your needs and wants, and begin to live a life that's more serving. ​I mostly work with those who regard themselves as perfectionists, overthinkers, or people pleasers, and those who struggle to implement boundaries. I have a wide range of experience working with difficulties such as anxiety, stress, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, low self-worth, relationship issues, attachment, trauma, loss, abandonment issues, low mood, and loneliness. If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to get in touch and we can decide together whether we feel I will be the right therapist for you.
