I have a private practice near Framlingham for counselling and counsellor supervision. I am an experienced BACP Senior Accredited and Registered counsellor who has worked in the field of counselling since 1997. Alongside my private practice, I have worked in a GP surgery and in the voluntary sector with the bereavement service, CRUSE, and at Saint Francis Hospice, Havering, where I held the position of Supervisor. I also worked for Family Care Counselling Service in Waltham Abbey for 14 years, so I have a wide range of experience in general counselling.
I see individuals, aged 16 and over, for time-limited and long-term work. My approach to counselling is based on admiration and respect for my clients. My intention is to provide a safe space for us to explore the issues affecting you. Although I will not give you advice, I will support you in discovering what is best for you.
I am an adoption counsellor working with Barnardo's LINK Adoption Services to provide counselling to those affected by adoption, including birth mothers, adopters, or those who have been adopted. I have also undergone further training in Attachment Focused counselling. I am qualified to provide Adoption Support work (through Barnardo’s) if you are an adopter, adoptee or birth parent or are in any way directly affected by adoption.
I offer professional supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. I also supervise those who are working towards their BACP accreditation.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
