I practice from a relational integrative perspective, being informed by various theories and techniques, such as Humanistic (our individualism and perception of ourselves), Psychodynamic (how our past experiences can influence current experiences) and CBT (how our thoughts affect our actions).
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.

Waitlist for new clients
You're a sensitive, thoughtful person. In so many ways you know you should feel lucky to have achieved what you have. But lately you've been feeling worried, overwhelmed and sometimes a bit hopeless. And your sensitivity - which could be your superpower - instead seems to only make you feel worse. You feel like you should be able to sort yourself out and carry on - but deep inside a small inner voice is calling out that it needs to be honoured and heard. You long to find somewhere that you can feel truly listened to and understood. Where it's okay that you're a complex person, full of contradictions and questions.

Are you carrying a silent pain that you wish the people around you could understand? Do you try so hard to stay positive, juggle everything and make sure the world around you thinks you’re coping ok. Is the reality actually, that you are trying so hard to fight back the tears, and in fact, you feel alone and don’t want to burden anyone. Do you see the same unhealthy relationship patterns unravel again and again? Maybe you are trapped in addiction, self harm or self destructive behavior. Do you look for any way to escape those painful feelings? I would like to help you with this.

We are all able to agree that our physical health is variable, but it may be much harder to admit that our psychological health is in constant flux. All too often, we find ourselves buying into the idea of the "stiff upper lip": that "mental health issues" affect only other people - and "weak people", at that! It can be very daunting, therefore, to recognise that we need help and then to take steps to find a professional who will help things improve. I understand those concerns, because I've been there: and I also have experience of the positive effects of psychotherapy - from both sides of the consulting-room!

Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, not able to think clearly, feeling like something isn't right & want to feel better. Reading this, is your first big step forward to feeling better. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you have a greater awareness about yourself, a chance to talk to someone about the things in your life that don't make sense or what makes you angry, sad or afraid. I have experience working with anxiety & depression, panic, relationships, aging, suicidal thoughts, trauma, abuse, along with transgender, gender dysphoria and more. I am only 8 miles from Ipswich. 9 miles from Colchester.

Life can be difficult at times 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.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Colchester, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
