I am a qualified, and experienced Person-Centred therapist. Working in Beccles and Saxmundham, I offer a place for you to discuss any issues/problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential space.
Person-centred therapy offers you deep empathy, acceptance of you as a unique and individual person, together we can work towards developing an understanding of yourself, and whatever issue you are encountering and finding a way through.
Additionally, I teach and lecture students at university on a counselling course , and thus have many years supporting individuals’ self-development and ongoing professional development.
My main specialisms are working with clients with issues of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, victims of sexual abuse and trauma.
I have additional relevant training supporting clients dealing with trauma, using awareness of the body and creating a relationship within which you can explore the difficulties you are experiencing and find ways of managing your life.
I am able to offer creative ways of working with issues that may be hard to explore verbally, in this case the mediums I often use with clients are; drawing, painting, pastels, clay and sandtray. Working creatively is a particularly useful way to explore self and difficulties you are experiencing, at those times when it is hard to find the words to say what is going on for you.
If you would like a phone consultation to assess if I may be of help to you, please contact me.

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.
