Ian Shaw BSc(Hons), DipHE, FdA, MBACP
I'm a counsellor based just outside Sudbury on the Essex/Suffolk border. I work from my private consulting room on the outskirts of the town with discreet, free off-street parking.
I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and over.
There are many reasons why people consider counselling. It might be that you're living with a question that you'd like some help resolving or a feeling that you'd like to understand or change. Whatever your reason, I'm trained to draw on a wide range of psychological theories and approaches to come up with an approach to counselling that suits you.
You can talk safely and confidentially about whatever you want and I will listen without judgement. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I work to their professional codes of ethics and standards. So as well as my own professional standards, I'm accountable to a national professional body for the way that I work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a qualified integrative counsellor (FdA) holding a BSc (Hons), DipHE and FdA.
While my approach is applicable to a broad range of situations and challenges I have particular experience of working with:
- Relationship issues
- Bereavement and grief
- Emotional and physical abuse
- Substance misuse and recovery
- Gender and sexual identity.
Before my training and experience as a counsellor, I had a successful career in finance and technology. So I've also experienced a lot of the highs and lows that big (and small) business can bring outside the counselling room.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Anger management
- Attachment disorder
- Body dysmorphic disorder
- Career counselling
- Domestic violence
- Emotional abuse
- Family issues
