About me

I am a BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in  Woodbridge, Suffolk and Notting Hill Gate London. I AVIVA registered. I offer both short and long term counselling, working with Individuals, Couples, Adolescents

I completed my training in 2002 and worked for a large GP practice in Suffolk. My Clients were varied, both individuals and couples ranging in age from 16 to 80 plus. In 2003, continuing my work at the GP surgery, I began in Private Practice and I also started working in an Adolescent Referral Unit in Suffolk. I now practice privately in Suffolk and London, clients are referred through GP'S practices ,word of mouth or the internet .

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling and Psychotherapy can help through weekly discussions and sharing, with a trained therapist, to explore feelings and personal struggles that may be causing you stress, anxiety or difficulties.

The Approach

The approach that I practice is called “Humanistic Person or Client Centered” and trusts in the client’s abilities to explore their own difficulties and make their own choices if offered the appropriate facilitative conditions. The Counsellor will therefore not offer advice but offer a ‘safe’ and confidential space place to explore personal difficulties thereby enabling you to find your own solutions and coping strategies .

How the sessions work

An initial session will be offered for the individual or couple, to assess whether this approach to Counselling feels appropriate. After the initial session you may wish to continue regular counselling sessions, usually weekly and of fifty minute duration. Over the last 5 years I have increasingly worked with clients using FaceTime, What'sApp and Skype and have found it to be an equivalent alternative to face to face sessions.

I offer evening appointments and early morning appointments

Member organisations


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.
