About me

I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist, fully insured and an accredited member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, adhering to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. I hold a full indemnity insurance and DBS certificate.

In my private practice I work with young people, adults and couples in both short-term and long-term work, depending on the individuals requirement. I have a separate room adjacent to my home specifically designed to create a warm, safe working environment. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac location and central for regular bus routes.

Through the NHS I have worked with GP referrals via the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) contract and with work employees via Waveney District Council in Suffolk.
I also currently work with students age 16 years and above within a Further Educational setting having previously worked with the tutors and staff.

Although my foundation is Psychodynamic, I do approach other models where necessary to sensitively adapt to what is needed for the individual, including CBT, Mentalisation and Solution-focused.
