HomeI offer warm, compassionate and down-to-earth counselling and psychotherapy in Ipswich, Suffolk.
Most of us, at some time in our life, have an experience of being knocked off our tracks, or of feeling stuck and uncomfortable in our own skin. Talking things through with a skilled and empathic listener gives us the opportunity to reconnect with our feelings and to make sense of our experience. Psychotherapy has helped me to develop a more compassionate relationship with myself and others and to live with greater ease and authenticity.
Psychotherapy and counselling involve exploring our feelings, paying attention to what we are doing and challenging our thinking. In this way we can take responsibility for ourselves and have more options and resources for dealing with difficulty. I can support you in this process in a respectful, compassionate and creative way.
Specific issues which I can help you address include difficulties around relationships, self-esteem, anger, depression, anxiety, obsessive behaviour, sexuality, parenting, bereavement, conflict, eating disorders and self-harm. I am a trained couples therapist, have completed specialist training in working with trauma and I am a qualified supervisor for other counsellors and psychotherapists.
