About me

Do you have a space in your life to sit, reflect and be truly honest?

Are you juggling overwhelming emotions such as anxiety, depression, anger, loss, frustration and you feel alone with your thoughts?

Are you struggling to connect with people in your life? 

Do you feel lost at work or in your home life? 

Do you tend to self-sabotage or doubt your own ability?

Often we choose to invest in our physical health, our home, our lifestyle, hobbies, vacations, but is there sometimes a reluctance to do the same with our mental health? Perhaps hoping the issues will correct themselves? 

What to expect:

In our weekly 50 minute sessions, we will work together to create a confidential, calm and holding environment for us to discuss and explore why you may feel this way. We will look at your unconscious thoughts and patterns which may be stopping you from what you truly want.

I am led by what you choose to bring to our sessions and you will be encouraged to be yourself. I strive to maintain an inclusive space that is LGBTQIA+ friendly and diverse, inclusive of people from all walks of life.

My training in Psychodynamic Counselling creates a framework for our sessions where as I learn more about you I will create links to your relationships, traumas, events and childhood experiences; we can think and make sense of these together. We can discover why you feel this way and work towards freeing yourself from these issues and creating more peace in your mind, inner world and external life. 

Who will benefit:

Those with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, OCD, ADHD, abusive relationships, sexual abuse, eating disorders, and addictions are just a few areas of experience I have worked with but I welcome anybody who is feeling stuck and ready for change to reach out.

Difficulties in our past tend to show up in our present in the forms of poor relationships with money, food, a lack of control over our emotions, inability to allow ourselves to rest and recharge, pleasure-seeking through overspending or relying on substances to numb these feelings. I will provide a non judgemental space to air these issues and we will identify together what you hope to seek from therapy.

Where we can meet:

As well as working in person in the comfortable rooms in central Ipswich within The Stephenson Centre, I also offer sessions online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with people with a range of issues but most predominantly people with trauma, anxiety, depression, self sabotage, low self esteem and intrusive thoughts. I have been working with clients on a weekly basis for the past 2.5 years. 

I hold a Masters degree (with distinction) in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Essex, I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I continue to engage with clinical supervision and ongoing professional development 

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
