About me and my therapy practice

With over 14 years of experience in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, I have learned many skills to support people on their journey to wellness, personal development and spiritual growth. Whether clients need to recover from mental illness, trauma and loss or wish to improve their success in relationships or career then I can offer a bespoke approach so that each client has the freedom to work in a way which suits their individual needs.

Online or Telephone Counselling & Psychotherapy

Online using Zoom or WhatsApp video.

As an integrative counsellor I work holistically by integrating different therapy theories into my practice. In my training I have developed a skills set which includes, Regenerative Eco- Psychology, internal family systems, behavioural therapy, psychdynamic, attachment focused therapy, nature based stress reduction and therapeutic art and play.

If you decide that I am the right therapist for you, we will work together with what you bring, with the understanding that we will not simply examine the problem/issue in isolation but as a part of your world, seeing it in the wider context of your life and history.

Outdoor Nature Based Eco-Psychotherapy

Exactly how the session will unfold will depend on the individual but it may include; talking in depth about situations, feelings and experiences; meditation exercises which help people connect to their environment and feel grounded; focusing on a particular tree, plant, rock, animal or piece of land to find meaning and connection in nature; making something creative using natural found materials.

Have you ever looked up at the sky at night and wondered "why am I here?"or been so touched by the beauty of a tree or landscape that you have been moved to tears?

Participants may also be encouraged to explore their environment to find meaning and mirroring from Nature. This supports greater insights into personal experiences, feelings or issues related to emotions, relationships or certain situations.

Practice description

Online or Telephone Sessions

Counselling & Psychotherapy recognises the interconnectedness of life, that we are not a problem to be solved. We are embodied mystery seeking to know her or his self as the unique expressions that we are. 

Within our counselling relationship you will be free to express yourself - there are no thoughts or feelings that are 'out of bounds'. Whatever thoughts or feelings arise, we will explore these together and try to understand them.

As your therapist I will not give you advice or tell you what to do. Instead I use my skills, intuition and training to support you in finding your own way forward, we can begin to access how your history colours, your thoughts, feelings and beliefs about yourself and the world around you, while rediscovering and building upon your own self esteem and confidence.

Outdoor Nature Based Therapy Sessions

My Outdoor practice has emerged through my passion to support people with mental health and personal development needs, along with my love for the natural world. I have over 16 years experience in mental health, addiction, sexual trauma, depression & anxiety.

I have worked with people of all ages and genders as a psychotherapist. In order to develop my Nature based work.  I completed 2 year Accredited Diploma in Regenerative Eco Psychology and Nature Based Practice in 2022. This enabled me to support my clients through the pandemic in new and effective ways.

I am also a member of Nature & Health Practitioners Network 

The focus of Nature Based Therapy is to support the participant to connect with the natural environment in a deeper and more meaningful way which helps them to feel safe and held by nature with a skilled practitioner who acts as listener and guide.

Sessions take place in carefully selected nature spaces, chosen for their beauty, peace and tranquility. 

Close to my practice in IP6 ; Gosbeck or Helmingham, close to Ipswich and Stowmarket in Mid Suffolk.

My first session

Whichever therapy you pick , you will be supported in a respectful and nonjudgemental way. Confidentiality is central and crucial to this work and participants are never expected to discuss anything they do not feel ready or able to.

Initial Online Assessment

Initially you will be offered an online assessment. This runs for 75 minutes and gives you a chance to meet me, share you story and find out which of the therapies I offer are going to suit you best. Fees and confidentiality will be discussed.

If we collectively decide it will work, you will be offered weekly sessions to begin.

n.b. I usually suggest 8 sessions with a review after 4-6, to see how you are feeling and so we can collectively plan going forward. It is essential that you choose the therapy which works for you.

About me and my therapy practice

Studies now show that people with strong connections with nature report feeling happier and more content. Being outside in nature brings its own healing element and this combines with exploring the symbols and mirroring that nature can offer to support recovery from mental illness, trauma, stress, anxiety as well as to support personal development and meaningful connection to the natural world.  Most importantly, when humans have a better connection to nature, they take care of the natural world in proactive ways which can restore and heal this beautiful Earth.

Practice description
