About me and my therapy practice
I offer Effective Counselling in Suffolk ; Experienced, No Nonsense, down to Earth help with your problems. Under a Person Centred Approach I use effective, Solution Focused tools.
We will identify the REAL problems in the here and now, YOUR goals and how to achieve them ASAP, I can help with Anxiety, Stress, Relationship issues, Anger, Addictions, Depression and PTSD.
I avoid Psychobabble, long/painful voyages of self discovery required and I do my best to help you quickly. Counselling and Hypnotherapy can help with all kinds of problems. I have BA Honours Degree in Counselling, From the University Of Suffolk, and also trained for 5 years in Solution Focussed Therapy.
I am fully qualified and have plenty of certificates; in Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Behaviour Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, (used under a Person Centred Umbrella).
(I have also completed years of Hypnotherapy training and can use this approach where it's needed).
I have office space, but we can arrange home visits to suit your schedule, if you are unable to travel to me.
There are hundreds of different counselling models in use today, this can be confusing, especially to people seeking help, many are full of weird jargon and strange concepts, but I keep it down to earth by applying clear thinking and proven techniques, I waste NO time in identifying your problems / your unmet needs and examining possible solutions.
My approach is proactive, I do not just listen endlessly to problems, or delve into childhood for people/events to blame; we deal with the here and now and together, do our best to get your life back on track ASAP.
I enjoy my work and keep up with cutting edge research, developments and methods.
My first session
I use My Person Centred training to build rapport quickly and don't waste time on psychobabble or diagnosing clients. We establish your goals quickly, find your options and explore your solutions in the here and now.
Solution Focused tools can help clients activate their own natural resources in new or more helpful ways to meet these core needs, essential for a healthy, balanced, functional life.
I do not buy into the labels/drugs solution, the only label that matters to me is your name; we are all individuals and labels often describe some symptoms, which change of course and can be both disempowering and frightening to people who are simply suffering from stress and worry due to unmet needs.
I believe people can recover from their setbacks, however serious they may be, and live a rewarding and enjoyable life again. Medication is not the answer long term, it does not solve your problems and I have seen my Therapy methods work even with the most serious cases.
I have many years experience working with couples, addictions, depression, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship or sexual issues; PTSD and other common reactions to setbacks in life, they do not have to be permanent, or hold you back any longer than they already have.
