About me

AI trained as a Psychodynamic Counsellor at the University of Cambridge. I am currently working in the NHS through GP referrals and in private practice with clients presenting a wide range of issues.

In my private practice I offer long and short term appointments for Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas.

I specialise in Anger Management and my other experiences include anxiety, stress, trauma, self esteem, depression, bereavement, relationship problems, eating disorders and panic attacks.

I am a registered accredited member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Cambridge.

The Psychodynamic approach involves exploring patterns of behaviour that have been developed as a result of past experiences, often from childhood. Through gaining an understanding of these patterns, and the defences we have constructed, we can begin to grow emotionally, developing more fulfilling relationships and a greater sense of mental wellbeing.

in addition to the Psychodynamic approach, I also employ techniques from other approaches such as CBT and Person Centred therapies.

I have just recently qualified the Counselling for Depression course in a Person Centred/Emotion Focused approach at Nottingham University.

I am a warm, positive counsellor committed to helping clients find the right pathway towards reaching their full potential in life. I believe that by understanding issues faced in life we can ultimately move forward with renewed and enriched perspectives
