Dr Lara Lopes de Jesus (CPsychol) Chartered Psychologist- Counselling in Chelmsford, Essex

Welcome to my website.

I am a qualified, chartered and experienced Counselling Psychologist who offers therapy and counselling from my practice in Chelmsford, Essex. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

People seek counselling for a wide number of reasons. It can be natural to believe that you have to keep on struggling with your difficulties alone, and try to effect change by yourself, feeling it would somehow be ‘weak’ or ‘embarrassing’ to ask someone else for help. Talking to an experienced therapist, however, can help you get to the root of whatever it may be that is stopping your life from moving forward and stopping you from feeling happier; and it can also give you extra support in making changes. Whatever your reasons, I can help.

Are you feeling down, as if life is getting on top of you?

Are you finding the challenges of life too difficult?

Are you fed up with the same problems repeating themselves in your life?

Do you want to make changes but aren’t quite sure how to?

If any of these sounds like your life, then perhaps it is time to get some extra help - to make your life happier and to give you back the control you yearn for.

I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

The work consists of a series of regular, confidential sessions in which all of these issues can be talked through. Sometimes the focus is upon current difficulties; at other times we look at the effects that past problems have upon the present.

There are many issues that I can help with, including:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Depression
  • Divorce and separation
  • Family issues
  • Feeling overwhelmed, not coping
  • Feeling stuck or trapped
  • Grief and loss
  • Irrational thoughts and fears
  • Life transitions, difficult choices
  • Low-confidence
  • Low self-esteem
  • Love and relationships
  • Physical health related issues
  • Pregnancy
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Repeating unhelpful behaviour patterns
  • Sexuality
  • Stress

    My counselling psychology practice is around 10 minutes drive from Chelmsford Railway Station in the new Channels housing development.

    Major roads easily accessible from Chelmsford include the A130 (two minutes drive away) and the A12 (eight minutes drive away). The development is served by bus 51 which leaves from Chelmsford Bus Station every half hour.

    There is street parking available and with prior arrangement parking is available on the drive outside my house.
