Hi I’m Kirsty I have been a qualified counsellor for over 7 years and specialise in working with Young People. My approach is to co create a relationship with you that enables you to speak about whatever you choose. I am able to offer a non judgemental, welcoming presence so you are able to explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences that you wish too. I believe that as individuals we are all unique and hold the capacity to gain new insights. This can encourage personal growth and development within us that can lead to change. I believe the therapeutic relationship is there to facilitate such experiences.

I have worked in a number of areas, with detailed experience of bereavement, depression, physical and substance abuse and PTSD.
Have you ever heard; I know what you're feeling! You're doing things wrong! You're making a fuss of nothing! You should try this! Someone else is worse off......sound familiar? With the growing stresses of modern life it's often difficult to know who you can turn to in a time of self need, without any judgement. That is where I come in. I provide a safe and secure environment for you to discuss your thoughts and feelings whilst reflecting upon where you are and where you want to be. I work integratively, meaning I take a number of different counselling theories and practices and combine them into the best therapy plan for you.

I believe experiencing difficulties is part of being human and something we all encounter at various points during our lifetime. What gets in the way of living life more fully - relationships with friends/family/partner becoming strained; experiencing a traumatic incident; growing up in an environment which didn’t feel nurturing and supportive or which hurt you physically or sexually; someone you loved or cared for has died; living with chronic illness; feeling stressed at work or as parent; reaching a pivotal age and being unsure about the future; needing to make a decision but finding it hard; feeling ‘off’ and not being sure why.

Do you have emotional or psychological issues that have been holding you back, maybe for longer than you care to remember? Do you wish to take back control of your life? If the answer is 'yes' this can be your future. I offer a non invasive solution based modality in a calm, safe and secure environment. I also offer a more conventional integrative counselling too, having been very fortunate to learn from someone with 25 years experience in the field, of what works and what doesn't. My own work and personal experience have confirmed this and I wish to share my knowledge and success with you. Feel free to call and find out more.

My name is Adama and I am a Person-Centred Integrative Counsellor. Sometimes in life, we hit a crisis point and it can be a scary experience. We find ourselves dealing with issues that can cause extreme emotional pain or issues that makes us feel uncomfortable. We feel lost, trapped and we feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. However, going through these experiences also shows that we are human beings, that sometimes we need help. Sometimes, all that we need is someone who supports us and respects our views. Unsurprisingly, the idea of counselling can be quite daunting, especially when we don’t know what to expect.

Sometimes the world sometimes throws up huge challenges just as we're really struggling inside too, from debilitating conditions such as anxiety or depression. At times like this, our normal coping strategies may fail, dragging in heavy self-criticism and/or destructive behaviours. Some of us find ourselves moving from high anxiety by reaching for something big - food/drink/gambling/shopping//sex/porn/obsessive tidying etc - to get rid of it. The shame of the fix can quickly restart the anxiety and so the cycle starts again. But there is another way.

Are you feeling anxious or suffering from a low mood? Perhaps you are experiencing relationship problems or struggling to find your own identity? Having a safe, supportive space where you can explore these issues can be a useful way of finding closure and developing self-awareness. I work with individuals who are over 18 and who wish to explore their challenging emotions. For an informal chat about counselling and what it can offer, please give me a call. There is no obligation to continue and I am happy to help. My private practice is based in Ipswich and off-road parking is available.

I believe our childhood experiences form who we are in our adult relationships, we carry with us the traumas we experience in our lives, these can manifest themselves as psychological and physiological problems, we have to survive so we bury the unpleasant feelings, they are buried alive and want to get out, we suffer, experiencing anxiety, depression, mental and physical illness, the internal and external voices are overwhelming. Counselling is an opportunity to address these feelings, to sit with emotions that may be unfamiliar. I know counselling can help because I have seen many individuals break the cycle.

Are you struggling with self harm? Do you feel you have problems relating to depression or low self esteem? My name is Leanne Scott and my main field of specialties are mood and anxiety disorders, trauma and all levels of depression as well as self harm, including (but not exclusive too) cutting, burning, breaking bones, object insertion and partial and or actual removal of limbs or body part. I feel my uniqueness in this field lies not only in my knowledge of these mental health problems and self harming behaviours but that I work with clients to help them recover in ways that are tailor made for them.

Life can be extremely challenging, particularly in these current strange times! Anxiety and depression are more prevalent than ever at the moment. As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of theories and styles to support you in therapy enabling me to work in the best possible way to suit your needs. However, despite these different approaches, it is the relationship which has been found to be the most important factor in facilitating change. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship, which is based upon trust and sensitivity, to enable you to explore concerns from the past, present or future.

Life can sometimes be difficult and we may find ourselves struggling and feeling anxious, depressed and unconfident. We may find ourselves battling with the feelings evoked by loss, due to bereavement, relationship breakdown or even the children leaving home. Counselling is not a magic cure, but talking to an empathic, skilled therapist can help; fostering both the processing of difficult feelings and resilience to better deal with what life throws at us, enabling us to move forward. The effect of just being listened to by those who have hitherto struggled to be heard can be both powerful and empowering.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for an Ipswich domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Ipswich.
