About me

I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) accredited counsellor in private practice in central Ipswich.  I work with adults on a one-to-one basis for short and long term work.

I offer the opportunity to enter into a safe, ethical, confidential and supportive counselling relationship, giving the chance to explore feelings, thoughts and beliefs about yourself, your relationships, your experiences and your place in the world.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in 2003 and am a humanistic integrative counsellor.  This means I have been trained in a wide range of approaches to understanding feelings, thoughts, behaviour, relationships, what can go wrong and what can help when we are troubled.  I believe in human potential for growth and that insights, self awareness and resolution achieved in a safe counselling relationship can lead to realisation of that potential.  I am also interested in how we are influenced and shaped by society and culture.

Although I work across a wide range of issues, I have two areas of specialism:

1. Working with people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGB&T) or who are anywhere on the continuums of sexuality and gender identity. For more information, please see my entry on the Pink Therapy website www.pinktherapy.com

2. Working with trauma in a body-focused way. Trauma can be defined as a time or an event in which we felt overwhelmed and helpless. It can be anything from a one-off event, such as assault or car accident, to more complex trauma caused by abuse or neglect. For more information about how I work with trauma, please go to www.traumahealing.org

I work in accordance with the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice and keep up to date with new ideas and research by undertaking regular continuing professional development.
