Welcome. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can explore any issues that may be troubling you. I am an experienced counsellor and a BACP member (MBACP) providing professional therapy services in Stowmarket IP14.
I pride myself on practising to the highest ethical standards and I adhere to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Code of Ethics.
In my practice I work to an integrative approach which allows me to progress at your pace applying Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles. The integrative counselling approach acknowledges that you are a unique individual and that different people have different needs and no one single approach is sufficient.
I have experience in dealing with a wide range of issues including; addiction, bereavement, relationship issues, anger management, depression, anxiety, abuse, low self-esteem, sexual issues, low self-confidence, child related issues, stress, work related issues, trauma, bullying.
I will provide you with a quiet, safe, confidential, non-judgemental space in which you can talk about emotions and thoughts that you may not have been able to express before, or to address important matters that have been put off but always seem to return.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
