Catherine Lindsay-Davies, Registered member MBACP
I work from a humanistic integrative approach and believe that people can benefit from counselling for a wide range of reasons; to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress; for support in times of difficulty, such as bereavement, divorce, illness or unemployment; or to seek greater self-awareness and fulfilment in life, enabling growth and a deeper understanding.
It is not always easy to speak to friends or family about difficult of personal issues and it can help to speak to a counsellor who will not judge you or tell you what to do. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard and to find clarity to enable you to make your own decisions, all in a supportive and confidential environment.
If you think counselling could help you, please phone or email me for an introductory chat, and we can arrange an initial appointment to see how we can work together.

I charge £35 per hour. Sessions last 50 minutes.
I have a limited number of sessions available at a reduced cost of £20 if you are unable pay the full amount.
We will initially speak on the phone to discuss how I can help you. If you are happy to proceed, we will arrange an introductory session to help you decide whether counselling could help you and if so, we will agree a plan for your therapy.
It is usual to plan for 6 to 12 sessions, and we can add or reduce these at any time. There is no obligation to continue and you may finish therapy at any stage, although it it beneficial to work toward a planned ending. We will enter into a therapy contract so that our arrangements are clear. Our sessions and their content are strictly confidential.
I work from private rooms in Woodbridge. There is ample free parking outside and buses 63, 64 and 65 stop nearby. I am 15 minutes walk from Woodbridge train station.
My rooms are on the ground floor with wheelchair access, although I am afraid there is not wheelchair access to toilets.
