Welcome To My Therapy Practice

Serving Hornchurch, Romford and Online

I’m Vanessa, a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am an Accredited Member of BACP, MBACP (Accred), and a Senior Accredited Member of NCS, MNCS (Snr Accred). I am a Professional Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).

Sessions can be held in-person or online (UK residents) either on a fixed short-term basis or open-ended depending on what is appropriate for your needs.

You may be struggling with issues that would benefit from an impartial listener.

Perhaps you have been considering whether counselling or psychotherapy is right for you but feel daunted at the prospect of taking the first step. A relaxed, informal, and no obligation phone conversation with myself will help to answer any questions and relieve any anxieties you may have about the process.


Vanessa is kind, compassionate and non-judgemental, which helped ease the anxiety I felt when speaking openly about my struggles. I am now so much more aware of the way that I think and feel and that’s due to Vanessa’s ability to see what’s going on beneath the surface. Thank you for enabling me to feel more like myself!

I was referred to Vanessa for CBT by my university. From the very first session I felt safe working with her. She has pushed me to get the most from the sessions helping me be open and honest, giving me work to do in my own time and sharing resources – all of which has been key to the progress I have made. I have learnt so much about myself and what I can do to make the most of my life.

Thank you, Vanessa.


Vanessa is a kind and honest therapist. She has helped me in easing my anxiety and evaluate how and why I may be feeling certain ways. The experience has been a rollercoaster but Vanessa was like my seatbelt, made me feel safe and secure.

Thank you,
