Effective counselling/psychotherapy is essentially a conversation that deepens over time with a focus on helping you better understand yourself. Depression, relationship difficulties, anxiety, explosive anger, addictive behaviours, unresolved bereavement are symptoms of emotional conflicts that are not fully understood and integrated. My work focuses on helping you gain greater clarity and balance and expands your emotional experience and potential for making new, more productive choices.
After our initial contact by phone or email, we can then meet for a consultation to further discuss your requirements and to get a sense of how we might work together. Clients usually attend regular weekly fifty-minute sessions, arrangements can be either short or long-term, and there will be progress reviews with either option.
I offer a professional, respectful and confidential service.
I work from a comfortable modern practice in central Ipswich, IP1 2QA and should you arrive early for your consultation/session there is a waiting area with refreshments. There is parking nearby and good links with public transport. For a wheelchair user or those with mobility impairments, there is lift access to the second-floor counselling room. My counselling practice is within easy reach of Woodbridge, Felixstowe, Stowmarket and Colchester.
I work with men and women from age eighteen to elders and I am LGBTQIA supportive.
