About me

I am a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist, and a registered member of BACP.

My private practice is a comfortable room located within Westerfield Business Centre, Westerfield, Ipswich, and I offer face to face talking therapy sessions to adult individuals and couples who may be feeling vulnerable and wish to explore their thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviour.  I also provide online talking therapy via Skype.

Therapy sessions are available on a regular basis, short term or long term to suit your needs.
By utilising a variety of therapeutic approaches, I can help you to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable in a safe and confidential place.

Member organisations

BACP

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

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

There are many reasons why people find counselling beneficial.  Counselling provides a place that is separate from everyday life with someone who is trained to listen attentively and care for their mental wellbeing.  I can help you with unresolved painful memories, to gain control in a difficult life situation, and to find the strength to move forward.

By talking about how you are feeling and exploring the root causes of your emotional discomfort, I can help to alleviate many presenting problems.  These are the most common reasons why people seek help and is by no means an exhaustive list:

Acceptance and Loss

Addictions

Anger and Rage

Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Bereavement and Grief

Borderline conditions

Depression

Divorce and Separation

Domestic Violence

Guilt and Shame

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
