Therapist - Ipswich

Ipswich IP4
Sessions from £50.00



My availability is limited currently, however I am looking to increase my timings to create more space for potential clients. 

About me and my therapy practice

I offer psychodynamic Counselling for individuals from the Stephenson Centre in Ipswich.

You will have an allocated space at the same time and same day each week. Commitment is important and to gain the most benefit, weekly attendance is essential. 

Your space has been allocated to you; therefore, all sessions are to be paid for except when I am away. I will notify you of my breaks as soon as I can. If you do need to cancel a session, I will endeavour to offer you another time in the same week, but this will not always be possible.

I will invoice you on the last session of the month and payment will be expected within seven days of receiving said invoice. My fees are reviewed on an annual basis.

If you need to contact me, you can phone or text on my mobile or send me an email. If your message requires a response, I will respond as soon as I can or on the next working day. 

When it comes to ending therapeutic intervention, it is beneficial to have a planned ending which has been worked through. I do, therefore require four weeks’ notice for longer term work (6+ months).

Practice description

As a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Therapist, I aim to offer a safe, confidential space in which it is possible to explore and reflect on moods, feelings, thoughts and emotions that are troubling and/or distressing. This is to gain a deeper understanding of what could be ailing you in present life.

Considering the difficult and painful places we can find ourselves in life, I work at the pace that you would like to. We explore according to how you feel. I work in an unstructured mode; this means we engage in conversation and there is no homework or checklists involved. 

My first session

When it comes to a first session, it can be considered an assessment session to find out if I am the right Therapist for you. This may extend into a further session or two depending on how the discussion goes. 

I will require some administrative information and go through how I work as well as your expectations for the Therapy.
