About me

Hello, I’m an experienced therapist offering counselling to young people (14+) and adults both face to face and online. I care about my work, I’m good at what I do and I enjoy it. While I don’t promise miracles, I do promise that I will give it everything I have. If you’ve read this far, I’m guessing you’re ready to do the same for yourself.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation for people interested in therapy. Please get in touch, I look forward to meeting you…..

Recently I created a comfortable, Covid-friendly room, allowing us to sit 2m apart. My room is located at my home in Cotton, a small village in Mid-Suffolk.

I offer Adult Therapy, Teen Therapy, Walking Therapy, School based Therapy & Supervision

I am a qualified supervisor and offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors working with individuals and young people. I also provide supervision within schools to safeguarding and pastoral staff who can really benefit from this service.

Training, qualifications & experience

My education includes a BACP Accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling from CPPD London in 2009. Since then I have undertaken training in CBT, Creative Therapies and Supervision.

My experience includes working for schools, colleges and running a private practice in London before moving to Suffolk with my family in 2011.

Since moving to Suffolk I have worked in several schools across Suffolk and Norfolk and run my private practice from home. I continue to update and add to my skills through specialist trainings, courses and conferences. My child and adult work is supported by regular monthly supervision.

I am a qualified supervisor and offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors working with individuals and young people. I also provide supervision within schools to safeguarding and pastoral staff who can really benefit from this service.

Since 2013 I have been providing a counselling service in primary schools across Suffolk & Norfolk for staff and pupils. Please contact me if you would like more information about this service for your school.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Teen Therapy - It’s tough when your teenager is in pain, and you’re unable to fix it. As a parent, you want your teen to feel confident. You’re willing to do what it takes to support them, but you aren’t sure how. Maybe you’ve scoured the internet for help, read parenting books, and asked your friends for advice on what to do. The suggestions you got may have helped a little, but they didn’t solve the problems.

Whether your teen is sharing things with you that upset you both, or turning away and leaving you wondering what’s actually going on – you know something is different. Something is wrong. You’re determined to get them help.

Walking Therapy - Walking therapy is something that I find to be very therapeutic with clients of all ages. Instead of sitting in front of your counsellor in a traditional therapy room, the counselling session takes place outdoors walking side by side.

It is counselling in motion. If you have felt stuck in therapy in the past, being physically active helps release some tensions and stimulates new thoughts and ideas. It is a metaphor for moving forward.

During a walking therapy session, you lead the pace just like in a traditional counselling session. Walking side by side can feel less intimidating and helps release inhibition.

School Therapy - Since 2013 I have been providing a counselling service in primary schools across Suffolk & Norfolk for staff and pupils. Please contact me if you would like more information about this service for your school. References are available upon request.

Further information

What do I offer? - I understand that taking the first step to begin counselling can feel daunting. I offer a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space in which you can talk about emotions and thoughts that you may not have been able to express before. My aim is to provide a supportive therapeutic relationship where you experience warmth, empathy and understanding.

Can therapy really help me? Yes, it can. Counselling gives you a place where you’re not judged, you’re not told what to do, and you won’t be forced to listen to just one single opinion. I want to give you a place to feel safe to share about yourself. Therapy takes some work at times and I won’t lie, it can get uncomfortable. But, I feel that most people leave counselling feeling like the time and energy they put into therapy was well worth it.

How can I tell if a counsellor is a good fit for me? There are a few ways that you may go about figuring that out. One way is the “you’ll know when you know” method. It’s important to feel like you connect with someone if they’re going to be your counsellor. The therapeutic relationship is the connection and relationship developed between the therapist and client over time. Without the therapeutic relationship, there can be no effective or meaningful therapy.

Another option is to do a little research and see if anyone specializes in the problems that are bringing you to therapy. That can be really valuable. Most therapists offer consultations to determine if they will be a good fit for you. I offer a free 15-minute consultation for people interested in therapy.

In the end, it really is your decision, and it’s one that you are definitely able to make! If nothing else, you deserve to decide on your therapist. For parents, it’s going to be the best bet to let your teen have plenty of input in choosing their therapist.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
