Counselling can be a place to let go of the carefully presented story we tell the world and be authentically you – unedited and unfiltered. It is a place to speak about, feelings, thoughts, memories, sensations, fantasies and dreams. And what comes to the surface will be understood in the context of your unique history, culture, sexuality and personality.
What would it be like to work with me?...I am naturally welcoming and open-minded, and I hope to put you at ease as we build our therapeutic partnership. I think it is important that you express yourself, but it is vital that you are heard and understood. I am curious but patient. I am respectful but I will not shy away from making a challenge.
What will we do?...In the session, we will speak in depth about what has brought you to counselling and through the exchange of different ideas, opinions and points of view, we will arrive at a truth. If appropriate, we will explore how the past affects the present, or learn how to calm the body, use neuroscience theory to understand the mind, brain and body and its reactions, or gain insight using creative materials when words are not enough.
I offer a dependable and confidential service.
I am happy to answer any questions you might have about the counselling process - feel free to send an e-mail (e-mail might be better if you have a few questions) or phone/text.
I work from two comfortable practices, and should you arrive early for your session both locations have waiting areas with refreshments: IP4 address is central Ipswich with low-cost paid parking on site with wheelchair access to the first-floor counselling room. IP3 address is close to A14 and A12, the counselling room is on the ground floor and is suitable for those with mobility issues, or require wheelchair access, and there is free parking on site. My practices are within easy reach of Woodbridge, Felixstowe, Stowmarket and Colchester.
