At times, we all can benefit from off-loading about our struggles and stressors to someone. A trained professional can listen attentively, and act as a non-judgemental sounding board.


The process of therapy can be challenging, supportive and constructive with the aim of working towards your outcomes. Psychotherapy can be open-ended or time limited.

At the Work Stress Buster, we offer minimum of 6 sessions to sessions lasting up to 18 months. Clients are seen via skype, in Hornchurch, Essex (occasional sessions) or regularly in Southend, Essex.

What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy seeks to help you work through struggles and difficulties by addressing the underlying causes. Psychotherapy can help you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and ways of relating to both yourself and others.

How can Psychotherapy help?
You have the opportunity to meet regularly with a psychotherapist, in a constructive environment and be heard.
You can focus on your core issues and work towards finding and addressing the underlying causes.
You have the opportunity to explore your choices and the ways you can move forward, in a safe environment.

Model of Therapy
A solution focussed model of therapy is used.. This means that whilst we address your key concerns and reasons for attending psychotherapy, we also make connections between what you say and its relationship to your desired outcomes from psychotherapy (there tends to be a natural connection between the two).
I recognise that you are the key agent of change in your process; even if you do not have the self-belief, I hold this belief for you until you do.
We will work at your pace.

Types of problems people may come to therapy for include:

  • Low self esteem
  • Family or Relational issues
  • Domestic Violence
  • Emotional abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Conflicts at work
