About Me

Hello, as you are looking at my profile, I am guessing that you are feeling in need of help, you may feel that you can’t cope, things are spiralling, you are drowning. Perhaps you feel that you are the only one to feel like this and you will never feel ‘normal’ again. I understand how awful those feelings are and I can help you to regain control of your feelings and your life, see things clearly and to make better choices for a better future and fulfil your potential
I am an established very experienced Counsellor, over 10000 face to face sessions with clients over 14 years. I offer counselling to individuals and couples face to face in Stowmarket or online (webcam, email or text) and have been awarded Senior Accreditation status by British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I also offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing which is helpful for all trauma, anxieties, phobias and can really help if you are stuck in negative thought cycles.

I offer long and short term work for Private or Corporate Clients and am an Approved Adoption Counsellor and my registration with Link Barnardo’s enables me to offer counselling for all issues connected to adoption.

My Experience

I am BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, CBT Therapist and EMDR Therapist.  This puts a lot of tools in my toolbox to help my clients in the best way for them.  I have practised in a number of settings:  GP surgeries, Mind,  prisons, addiction rehab centres, schools and colleges as well as in private practice.  I qualified n 2006 and have carried out over 11,000 sessions with clients face to face, online etc.

My Approach

I work with my clients at their pace and help them to achieve their aims (sometimes they are not quite sure what these are – just that something isn’t right). I believe most of all that the fundamental basis for successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client and I find that a warm friendly accepting non judgmental atmosphere achieves this trust.
