About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor working with individuals. I provide a confidential service in a peaceful and safe environment in which you can explore your problems, your life or whatever it is that is affecting your well-being at this time. To embark on counselling is to enter a deeply personal and therapeutic relationship with someone who can support you to find your way to live your life effectively. I often liken counselling to having someone walk with you awhile during a difficult part of your life.

I work four days a week within a Palliative Care setting managing a counselling team of paid, volunteer and student counsellors. I am accredited and have a BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling which I obtained in 2010. I have worked at two hospices as a paid counsellor as well as with teenagers as part of Ipswich Young Peoples Health Project formally known as 4YP where I worked in a local school and back at base supporting young people. For 10 years I worked as part of the out of hours team for Ipswich Women's Aid supporting women and their families who have suffered abuse.  Prior to this I worked for Nat West Bank,  11 years for Social Services, managed a Day Centre for elderly people, and worked 2.5 years as a Dementia Advisor.    

The areas I work with include: loss, bereavement, end of life / palliative care, depression, abuse, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders and self harm.

In addition to this I am a fully qualified holistic therapist and a member of ASK and FHT (Systematic Kinesiology/Federation of Holistic Therapists) which looks at the body as a whole - emotional, electrical, physical, nutritional.
