Counselling helps us think about what is happening currently in our lives. I will listen to your story and work with you in a supportive and containing way to make sense of what is currently causing you to feel depressed, anxious, stressed or worried. In validating the importance of your feelings, it helps us to work together to explore and think about possible ways forward.

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.

Sometimes we simply get stuck or lost and don't know which way to turn. This is true in all areas of life and not one of us is exempt. The feelings can result in anxiety, depression, stress which can impact relationships and work. Sometimes we have no idea whats going on and the simpliest of things can feel overwhelming. When offered a safe space to be really heard and understood, these feelings can begin to feel much smaller and no longer feel insurmountable

If you're struggling to control something in your life or a part of yourself, IFS is a great way to bring about change. It may be a behaviour that you're trying to manage (perhaps around food, gambling, gaming, sex or shopping) or an emotion that threatens to overwhelm you just when you don't want it to (such as anxiety or anger). IFS (Internal Family Systems) therapy works with each and every part of your neurophysiological system, so that you can truly feel calmly in charge of yourself and no longer overwhelmed by impulses and emotions.

I believe experiencing difficulties is part of being human, 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.

I support people to make positive changes so they can heal, thrive and live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Its time to become the person you have always wanted to be! Discovering what is important for you as an individual and learning to identify and use your inner resources to cope in times of stress, anxiety, bereavement, depression and emotional upheaval such as divorce, redundancy or retirement are just a few of the benefits of counselling. Often just talking through a traumatic experience or difficult feelings with another person can be incredibly therapeutic and will empower you to reach your potential.

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.

People begin counselling for a variety of reasons including difficulties within relationships, mental health concerns, feeling overwhelmed, or to regain a sense of direction. Sometimes a life event has taken place and prompted a loss of stability. The common denominator is a desire for change, within the individual or their environment. I provide a warm, confidential and non judgemental space for self reflection and exploration, and support my clients to build on their resilience, resources and confidence.

I am a BACP Accredited Person-Centred Practitioner and Supervisor with more than 20 years experience and 20,000 hours of clinical practice. When we are thinking about accessing counselling therapy, it can be tricky to know how to proceed especially if we have had a poor prior experience or if this is a new venture. Practitioners need to be mindful that each person is an individual snd need to feel valued as such if they are to find - through therapy - what it is they would like to achieve for themselves. It can be difficult to know what we may want from this process but, often having such a want is enough to spur us on.

Sometimes we all need additional support to navigate difficult times and making a decision to seek help for our personal problems can be daunting. I believe in creating a safe space to work together, where you are the expert in your own experiences and I have the experience and expertise in psychological theories and techniques. I believe that by bringing together this expertise we can work together to enable you to achieve your unique personal goals. Some of the relationship problems I work with include communication issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, parenting issues, separation and divorce.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Ipswich?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Ipswich specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
