About me

Hello and welcome. I am Patrick, an experienced Counsellor  offering face to face and online/telephone 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.

I have experience of working with issues faced by the LBGTQIA+ community and male victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

Training, qualifications & experience

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.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
