*Availability update November 2021: I am currently at full practice and am operating a waiting list, I am unable to take on new clients. From February 2022 I will be available to take on new clients.*
I am a BACP registered counsellor offering short, medium and long term counselling to individuals and couples. I am currently offering sessions Face to Face at my practice and also via Skype/ FaceTime and telephone. If government guidelines change I will be working online and by telephone only.
As a therapist, my commitment to you is to provide a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment in which we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life which cause concern or distress. I support the uniqueness of each individual and am committed to helping every client within the therapeutic relationship towards emotional wellbeing. My therapy practice is grounded in my core training in person-centred counselling, while being informed by a variety of approaches.
My practice is available to everyone. I have a separate specialism aside from my generalised practice working with Neurodiversity; Adults & families diagnosed or self diagnosed with Aspergers, ASD, ADHD, Depression & Anxiety. I have a website dedicated to therapy for clients on the autism spectrum. (please see website icon above)
My practise is based near Needham Market. It is easily accessible as it is situated very close to A14 at the junction meeting the A140. It is a private tranquil location which can also lend itself to outdoor therapy. I offer face to face, and Skype counselling (Individuals). There is ample space for parking.
I openly welcome first contact phone-calls or emails.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
