About me and my therapy practice

I have a Diploma HE Counselling (Child and Young Person), and offer counselling to children and young people aged 5 to 25 years. I offer a Person-Centred approach to Counselling and provide an autonomous environment for children and young people in which they can feel safe to explore and find a voice and effective communicative skills to help with the stresses of childhood and adolescence, so often experienced by many. As children and adolescents often find it difficult to express themselves emotionally using verbal communication, I also offer a creative aspect to my therapy, in the hope that feelings, emotions and experience can be explored more deeply through different media such as art, music and play.

As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I value each client individually and will work with whatever they bring, in a way in which they feel comfortable and supported to explore. My passion is to support the younger generation in enabling them to cope with the difficulties of their experience, not by telling them what to do or trying to ‘fix’ their situation, but by listening non-judgementally, and walking alongside them as they explore and find the answers they are looking for themselves.

I have 21 years of experience working with children, primarily of pre-school age and later with teenagers and adolescents. I have worked closely with children, their families and carers, to meet the needs of the individual child and support them to reach positive outcomes. Building a strong and trusting relationship with the child and their primary carers is essential to reaching such goals and this experience resonates throughout my approach to counselling.

If you decide you would like to meet me, we can organise an initial assessment session, this will give you a feel for how I work, what I can offer and if you feel it would be useful for you. For younger children, the Assessment will take place with the child and their parents and/or carers.

Practice description

I work as a school counsellor at an upper school in Newmarket, Suffolk and have my own private practice, 'Ivy Tree Counselling'.

Due to to the pandemic I am currently unable to see clients for face to face sessions, however, I am able to offer sessions online for clients aged 13 years and above. The resilience of the younger generation is truly remarkable, and I am greatly encouraged by their ability to adapt to change and find different ways of working effectively. Working online seems to come as second nature to our youth, and if they feel comfortable with this, offers a safe space for the client, counsellor relationship to develop and allow for safe and effective exploration of experience.   

My first session

If you decide you would like to meet me, we can organise an initial assessment session, this will give you a feel for how I work, what I can offer and if you feel it would be useful for you. It is important that you feel you have found the right Counsellor for you or your child for the counselling process to be effective. The assessment session will be held online. For younger children, (under 18 years) the assessment will take place with the child and their parents and/or carers. 

The assessment session is charged at £45. Thereafter sessions are charged at £40. There is no obligation to continue with sessions if you do not feel I am the right counsellor for you or your child.

Practice description

I work as a school counsellor in an upper school in Newmarket, Suffolk and have my own private practice, 'Ivy Tree Counselling'. Due to restrictions created from the Covid pandemic, I am currently unable to see clients privately for face to face sessions, however, I am able to offer online therapy sessions for children and young adults aged 13 years and above. The resilience of the younger generation is truly remarkable, and I have been greatly encouraged by their ability to engage in this process and adapt to different ways of working. If able to work from a safe, confidential space, online sessions offer clients opportunity for exploration of experience, and an effective counselling process.
