About me

I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a private practice based in Ipswich. I work with individuals on a face to face basis. I can offer you a safe and confidential space where you can explore whatever might be troubling you, or stopping you from meeting your best potential in life.

You may wish to explore things like:

  • Anxiety
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Panic
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexuality/Gender issues
  • Bereavement
  • Boredom or dissatisfaction
  • Abuse
  • Self-esteem
  • Trauma

I believe that generally, people have within themselves, the ability to realise their own best potential. However, sometimes things get in the way of us being all that we can be. For example, difficult relationships, traumatic experiences, low confidence or negative messages about ourselves can stop us living our lives to the full.

In relationship with each other, we can work together to gain insight into what has been holding you back and think about ways that can help you move towards your full potential.

I have particular experience in working with the effects of Domestic Abuse, and I have been trained in working with all aspects of abuse. This includes working with less obvious forms of abuse such as emotional or coercive control.

I have in depth experience of working with issues arising from complex family dynamics. I can work with you to explore the relationships around you, and how they may be affecting you.

I am also committed to continuing my professional development, and ensure that I am up to date with the latest research from within and around the profession.

I am trained in adult and children's safeguarding, and am DBS checked.
