Paula Isgrove

Primary Location
Secondary Location

Working with both individuals and couples. I appreciate the connection between physical health and psychological well being. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety disorders and trauma especially relating to relationship issues and sexual assault/abuse, sex problems and sex addiction. OCD and hoarding as well as panic disorders are also areas of interest.

I have a lot of experience of discussing sensitive and intimate topics with people, including issues relating to sexual identity and sexual assault/abuse. My approach is caring and professional and counselling is totally confidential.

My private practice room is in the quiet rural location of Birch only 10 minutes from Colchester town centre and within easy access of Stanway, Copford, Marks Tey, Tipree, Maldon, Mersea and Layer de la Haye and the surrounding area. There is space for you to park on a driveway for free and off the main road.
