About me

Hello and welcome. I am Patrick, an experienced Counsellor  offering face to face counselling sessions to adult individuals in a confidential, safe and quiet setting in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. I am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

From our first contact I offer you a totally confidential service with a dedicated phone and e-mail address. Any contact you have with me will only be accessed by me.

You will find that I am a caring, empathetic friendly counsellor with a professional approach who is committed to your individual growth and sense of true wellbeing. Sometimes we all have issues that we need help facing, working through, and overcoming. It might be an overwhelming life event, a crippling trauma, a transition, or life changes that may be hard to move past, or accept.

As your therapist, I will provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment in which we can work together to better understand and resolve any challenges in your life. if you choose to work with me, the work will be focussed on the issues you bring, with the understanding that we will not simply examine the issue in total isolation but as a part of your world, seeing it in the wider context of your life and history.

In my practice I work to an integrative approach which allows me to progress at your pace applying Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles. The integrative counselling approach acknowledges that you are a unique individual and that different people have different needs and no one single approach is sufficient.

I have a number of years of experience in dealing with adults who have experienced difficulties in a wide and varied range of issues including; addiction, bereavement, relationship issues, anger management, depression, anxiety, abuse, low self-esteem, sexual issues, low self-confidence, child related issues, stress, work related issues, trauma, bullying.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA (Hons) Integrative Counselling UCS

FDA Integrative Counselling UCS

Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling

I am also a trained facilitator delivering Anxiety Management, Depression Management and Confidence and Self - Esteem courses. My back ground is from working in community mental health; this gives me a good understanding of those mental health issues that can trouble an individual.

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.
