About me and my therapy practice
I am a integrated therapist working from my home office in Felixstowe with over 20 years experience.
By offering a safe place to talk, experience and understanding together we can work through specific issues you maybe experiencing to enable you to move forward confidently with tools to help you through.
I believe we all have the ability to heal and that it is never too late to turn things around and achieve your goals. I believe that the past does not have to dictate the future and that every challenge presents and opportunity for growth and move forward, that everyone has tools within themselves, but accessing those tools can be difficult.
I use various therapy modes including a person-centred approach, combined with solution focused therapy.
With regards to grief there’s a misconception that grief only happens when we lose people. This is not true.
We can grieve circumstances, relationships, missed opportunities, loss of self-worth, employment. In fact, sometimes when you find yourself plagued with waves of emotion from sadness to melancholy you may be grieving yourself.
If this resonates with you, please do consider grief therapy.
I also use mentoring as a way of working towards specific goals a client may have, sometimes clients are stuck and don't have a vision for what their preferred future could be, together we will work on those areas that need attention.
I offer a free 20-minute initial telephone appointment assessment for us to explore whst type of therapy you need.
I offer 60 minute sessions weekly to begin with, I find this gives you time to build up trust between myself and my client.
My fee is £50 per session for individuals , but if this is difficult for you we can discuss this and I may be able to offer a reduced rate depending on circumstances.
Fees are payable prior to each session by bank transfer.
I work by firstly assessing what you require from our time together and what it is that you perceive to be the biggest issue needing attention. I will work with to understand that you have everything you need within you to be able to move forward and build a better future for yourself.
I understand for some the idea of therapy can be quite daunting, but with gentle guidance I embrace the fact that everyone has internal inner wisdom and that external guidance is simply a measure to tap into.
I draw on many different modes of therapy, and as such am able to find a way of working that suits the issue you are presenting.
I have worked for the last twenty three years, with many clients and understand the need for therapy now is probably more important that it has ever been.
By working alongside each other, and building a therapeutic alliance, you will begin to see a change in the way you view your situation. Gently working through your conscious and unconscious mind you will learn what serves you well and what issues we may need to work on.
I have worked with a range of clients, who have presented with many issues and I know that with the right amount of gentle guidance each situation can be addressed and worked with.
If you have not had therapy before, I am happy to offer a free initial 20 minute telephone assessment to see whether you feel counselling is for you.
My first session
Our first session will be a chance for us to establish what it is that you need counselling for. To establish a working alliance, and to go through confidentially issues as well as drawing up a contract.
I will explain the way I work, and how I use different modes of working with clients to ensure that you fully understand how we will work together.
I am happy to work in person or via Zoom/telephone.
