About me

I am an experienced, fully qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor providing long and short term therapy for individuals and couples

My approach is to build a supportive relationship with my clients enabling them to begin to identify and address very personal problems safely and confidentially .

During our work together I may draw on a variety of approaches, if it seems relevant and appropriate. These include aspects of further trainings I have undertaken such as Attachment Theory, Gestalt and Family Systems Theory.

Therapy may be long or short term but the goal is always the same.

*To connect with and get to know yourself better

*To discover a more settled and comfortable internal world from which to live your life.

I provide a quiet, safe place for individuals or couples to explore difficult issues and anxieties in a supportive, confidential environment. Here, you can talk and think in ways rarely possible with friends and family.

In couple therapy, the work attends to both individuals as well as the couple. As life unfolds, couples often find it hard to make time to communicate or spend time together to discuss differences and concerns. Pressure builds within the relationship that can often cause resentment and hurt to fester.

Here, both partners are encouraged to air their differences in order to make space for collaborative resolution ~ whether or not the couple decides to remain together, or part.

I am based in the peaceful Suffolk village of Hartest, where I have practised privately for more than 10 years offering both short and long term therapy to individuals and couples each unique and with their own challenges.

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.
