I am a Psychodynamic trained Counsellor offering both long-term and short-term counselling to all age groups including children and adolescents and I also offer couple counselling. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am based in Sudbury, Suffolk.
I have had extensive experience working both privately and in the NHS sector.
What is Psychodynamic?
The Psychodynamic approach attempts to look at your life as a whole picture, past and present. The counselling environment provides a safe and confidential space where experiences and feelings can be listened to and explored in a gentle and non-judgemental way.
How does the approach work?
It aims to understand that there may be a link between past experience and current behaviour and by exploring this link it can often lead towards a clearer understanding of oneself. Developing a deeper self-understanding can often help with finding new and easier ways of managing feelings and situations in ones everyday life. This in turn will hopefully help to relieve any emotional distress and lead towards a more fulfilled and happy individual.
Who can I help?
I believe most people hit a difficult time at some point in their life and may feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed for whatever reason. I have helped people to deal with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, bereavement, abuse, anger management and many more.
