Life can be challenging and difficult for many reasons. There may be a singular or variety of circumstances within your life leading you to seek some support. Dealing with a problem on your own can feel like an isolating experience.
Within a safe and confidential setting, counselling provides an opportunity to talk about your thoughts, feelings and experiences. It enables growth and understanding and can also help process experiences of the past.
Whatever the difficulty is in your life
- Low self esteem
- Post traumatic stress disorder
- Everyday stress
Counselling gives an opportunity for a deeper understanding of yourself to enable changes you may choose to make within your life and for personal growth.
Working with Children
In 2008 I jointly founded The Schools Counselling Service. As a school counsellor, I offer play therapy, talking therapies, with children and young people.
Working closely with CAMHS and the Integrated Services Team for Suffolk County Council helping young people with issues such as bereavement and loss and self esteem
My integrative counselling approach is suitable for working with individuals, couples, groups, from a wide background of life experiences, reflecting the diversity of human needs.
I offer a non-judgemental space, working in a person-centred manner with empathy, genuineness and acceptance.
I am a qualified, experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist, accredited with the BACP (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom counselling and psychotherapy).
With 15 years experience, working with adults in private practice, and 13 years, working in schools with teenagers and children.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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
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).
