Hello, Welcome to my profile page.
I am an experienced counsellor having worked with adults for over 11 years and teenagers and children for 8 years. My aim is to provide a warm, welcoming safe environment where you can feel supported to explore any worries, problems or issues that are causing you any distress, sadness or anxiety.
I welcome clients of all ages across the Waveney Area and can engage in both short and long term counselling to suit your therapeutic needs. I am also currently offering Clinical Supervision to fellow Counsellors , Pastoral Support & Teaching staff.
Being trained in many different approaches in counselling- Psychodynamic, Person Centred, CBT and Solution Focused Counselling means I can help in different ways and as an Accredited Counsellor with the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists I am duty bound to work within an ethical framework,providing total confidentiality and safety.
My experience includes working with Bereavement, Loss, Stress, Divorce, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Depression, Low Self Esteem, Relationship Issues, Work related problems and Addiction problems.
In 2008 I jointly founded The Schools Counselling Service which is still operational and in its 8th year of realisation. My role as a school counsellor means I am practised in play therapy and can work with children and young people in an age appropriate way.
I have also worked closely with Cahms and the Integrated Services Team for Suffolk County Council helping young people with issues such as loss and self esteem.
Please contact me if you feel you would like to arrange a Counselling appointment or to arrange Clinical Supervision.
I look forward to hearing from you.
