Local support when you need it most….

Remember: the hardest part is making the first phone call…. Please, read on….

Welcome to ….. Essex Psychotherapy and Counselling. My name is Mic Austen.  I am a UKCP accredite Counsellor and Psychotherapist.   I work with Individual and Couples for both short-term (6-12 weeks) and long-term (over 3 months).   I hope that you will find all you need on these pages but if you would like any further information please feel free to e-mail or phone me.

Whether you are looking to explore a particular issue in your life right now or need a safe and supportive place to talk about past experience, Counselling and Psychotherapy can give you the support you need when you need it most to help you  move forward. I work with many different and varied issues:

  • depression and anxiety
  • stress and fears
  • emotional, psychological, physical and sexual abuse
  • traumas left over from traumatic events (known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • bereavement
  • family and marital relationships
  • sexual identity and gender issues
  • personality disroders – NPD, BPD, ASPD, etc
  • addictions

Sometimes we feel depressed, anxious, stressed but we don’t know even know why.   My job is to help you understand what is happening and to support you as you find a way through to feeling happy and content – to living the life you want.   I encourage you to phone me (0r email or text if you feel overwhelmed and feel uncomfortable phoning) and we can talk about your needs and how I can best help.  I am more than happy to answer any of your questions.
