About me and my therapy practice

As an Integrative Counsellor I work using a range of therapeutic models, tailoring our work to suit your individual needs. Working relationally, I provide space and support for you to explore difficult or unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

My aim is for you to feel empowered and safe within your own life and to feel seen and heard as you work towards the positive changes you are seeking.

I have extensive experience working with people who have experienced trauma both in childhood and as adults. My trauma work has been wide-ranging and has included supporting survivors of sexual, physical and emotional abuse.

If you would like to have an initial consultation to talk through what you would like to achieve and to see if you feel we could work together, please get in touch via email or telephone.

Covid-19 update: I am currently offering online or telephone sessions

Practice description

I have a private practice based in Suffolk, where I work with adults of all ages offering both short and long-term support. I also offer remote sessions for those not based near my practice.

I pride myself in offering an inclusive environment, honouring your background and experiences as they are. As part of this, I am committed to my ongoing professional development as a Counsellor, attending both online and face to face courses to further my experience and understanding.

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to the BACP professional code of ethics and practice. I attend regular supervision sessions and am fully insured.

My first session

Initially, I offer a free 30 minute consultation either on the phone or online and this gives us a chance to chat through what it is that's brought you to counselling and for you to ask me any initial questions you may have. I may also ask if you've had counselling before (it's absolutely fine if you haven't) but it helps me understand what you found helpful and what you may not have liked.

Following this I will send you my Working Agreement/Contract and my GDPR statement so that you can take time to read through them prior to your first counselling session.

In the first session we will take some time to talk through the contract and there will also be an opportunity for you to ask any further questions you may have. 

As our time together unfolds we will explore further what your hopes are for your counselling and talk through what you feel you may need. Again, it is absolutely fine if you don't know, beginning counselling is a big step and I will support you through this. Whatever thoughts, needs and ideas you bring to the work are welcome and I will work to honour these as we progress. I will also check back in with you from time to time to ensure that I am still meeting your needs as they develop.
