I believe that 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.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My usual fee for a 50 minute counselling session is £40. I have a limited number of concession spaces which are available to those on a low income or for students. Please ask if this applies to you and to see if there are any concession spaces available.
My practice is based in Central Ipswich in an office which is comfortable and confidential. There is full wheelchair access. The practice is within easy reach of rural Suffolk, as well as North Essex. There is a pay and display car park a few minutes walk away at the Spiral. Bus routes also run very close by, and the bus station is a five minute walk away.
I am BACP Registered, and UKCP Accredited.
I also have the capability to work online if needed.
