Integrative Counsellor in Suffolk, Norfolk & Cambridgeshire

About me

Hello and warm welcome to my page.

I am trained and practice Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I aim to work according to your need and with what will benefit you more as an individual when working with you. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I work with adults and young adults looking for support managing stress, anxiety, depression, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, feeling sad, relationship issues, work stress, emotional dysregulation, and anger amongst others. 

Are you looking for someone who will be present and listen to you while you explore the issues you are struggling with? Have your past experiences left you feeling unheard, rejected, neglected, sad and angry? 

Do you feel isolated and feel that you do not belong even when you are among family and friends? Or has your problem left you feeling isolated and thinking there is no way out? 

Do you feel stigmatised because of your personality, issues, culture, race, religion, illness, or because you are different? Or maybe you feel there is no one you can trust?

I understand how that feels from my own past experiences, and how your life’s experiences and life challenges may make you feel.

I provide counselling support committed to listen, hear you, and support you to reach and achieve a better manageable emotional and mental wellbeing.

My integrative therapy approach is provided in a safe, accepting, and non-judgemental environment; and is tailored and aimed to meet your unique individual need. A therapy that genuinely is about you. 

I value and accept you as a person without judgement and will create a nurturing space for you to explore the difficulties you are facing and to find healing and personal growth.

Online sessions

I work both in-person, online and telephone

Online session has many advantages, especially with health or mobility, and Covid-19 concerns.  

Choosing to have online sessions gives you great flexibility and option to have your session in your most convenient and comfortable environment and saves you from travelling and travel cost.

Choosing online sessions also means distance is not an issue. you can have your sessions from any part of the nation.

Online sessions may also help you feel more safe if you are concerned about Covid-19, or if your mobility is limited.

My online work is provided via Zoom, Telephone, Teams, or WhatsApp if preferred.

Initial session

It can be daunting to embark on counselling journey when you don't know what to expect, especially if it is your first-time seeking therapy. Even if you have had counselling before, it can still feel uncertain when selecting a new counsellor.

At the initial session, we will discuss your concerns you are bringing to counselling. This first session will help us both discuss how we will work together and helps start our trusting and understanding counselling relationship which will help us work better together should you wish to continue.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
