I aim to provide a friendly, relaxed, confidential space for you to share how you are feeling without judgement but with respect and understanding. I work with all sorts of difficulties: depression, bereavement, anger, anxiety, stress, relationship breakdowns all of which, can have a negative impact on our health and emotional wellbeing.
In our work together I will help you to make sense of your thoughts and feelings so you can gain a sense of control and inner wellbeing.
I offer evening appointments on a long and short term basis in private practice at Ipswich. If you would like an initial chat over the telephone or arrange an appointment please feel free to call me
