About me

I am a fully qualified BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered Integrative Counsellor and member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). 

I work with adults for over 18 years and have a counselling room in Woodbridge, Suffolk with free parking. I can provide short and long term therapy and offer a friendly and collaborative approach.

What type of counselling do I offer?

I am an integrative therapist which means that I draw on different therapeutic approaches and techniques depending on what you bring to counselling to best suit your needs.

Why should you choose me?

We all struggle in life at different times; however, sometimes situations can feel overwhelming and we might need to talk things through with someone who really hears us without judgment. 

I offer a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space where we can explore whatever issue is troubling you or causing you distress or confusion. 

I believe in a warm, collaborative approach where we work together in partnership to make sense of what is happening, supporting you to have a greater understanding of your circumstances or to find the solutions to move forward in your life.

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.

What can you expect?

Finding the right counsellor can feel overwhelming, so I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation by phone to discuss your therapy needs and to establish whether I am the right counsellor for you. 

Following this, if you would like to proceed with me, we can book a 50 minute counselling session either on Zoom, telephone or face to face. 

My availability and fees are as follows: 

50 minute counselling session: £50

What does the first session involve?

In our first session together, I will set some time aside for us to discuss and agree on the aims of the counselling, the number of sessions and the regularity of reviews. We will also discuss limits of confidentiality and how long the sessions will last, what to do if you need to cancel and my availability outside sessions.

I will answer any queries that you may have and I will ask you to sign our counselling agreement to show that you understand its contents.
