About me

Your emotions will drive the decisions you make today, and your success may depend upon your ability to understand and interpret them.’   Mary C Lamia Ph.D. Psychology Today

I work with individuals and couples. Appointments are available at short notice. My professional practices are in Colchester and Sudbury.

We can work together on the problems that you bring to the sessions. Some of the problems I work with are listed below and you can also contact me if you are uncertain regarding your type of problem.

Our working relationship will take precedence over almost everything else. For this reason, I currently offer a reduced fee for initial consultation, this will give you the opportunity to assess if my way of working feels right for you. How we connect with each other determines some of the outcomes we will achieve.

The way in which we work together will incorporate my skills and emotion-focused therapy methods.

Emotion-focused therapy is an integrative humanistic therapy, supported by research evidence. The therapy integrates person-centred therapy, gestalt therapy, constructivist methods and psychodynamic ideas on relationship attachments. Some of the aims are to support you, value your decisions and offer therapeutic task interventions on whatever life experiences you wish to bring to therapy.

Psychological well-being is just as important as physical health and that is why I like to carry out this socially valuable and rewarding work. All round health is important to us all, adults, teenagers, children, elderly and society in general.

Training, qualifications & experience

Registered therapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Humanistic Emotion Focused Therapist holding professional qualifications in Humanistic integrative counselling (BACP Accredited Programme Gold Book Standards) and Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Dip).

I also hold advanced professional training certificates (Adv Cert) in Emotion Focused Therapy. This is an empirically validated method that biases my work towards process experiential emotion-focused psychotherapy.
