About me

Things can get difficult for all of us in our lives from time to time. When that happens, and our normal coping strategies aren't working, it can be really helpful to have someone objective to talk to. I will listen non judgementally and offer you a safe place to work through whatever is troubling you with respect and trust.

I am an integrative counsellor who can work with you on a wide variety of issues. I have a special interest in bereavement, loss and grief. My particular training means that I am able to explore your world and experiences with you from a variety of viewpoints, looking at the past as well as the here-and-now. I have a strong belief that the relationship between us fosters healing and change.

If you would like to talk to me to arrange an initial appointment or to ask about anything else, please call or email me and I will get back to you within two working days. There is also more information on my website

I work in both Ipswich and Colchester.

All contact with me is strictly confidential.
