I trained on a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Accredited program for four years and graduated in 1998. I have my own private practice with offices in Ipswich Felixstowe ( Suffolk) and London.

Additionally I have worked for the NHS seeing clients referred by GP's within their own surgeries where primarily I support and coach clients how to overcome Stress, Anxiety ( including panic attacks) ,low mood and depression using Cognitive Behavioural therapy .

I am also a volunteer Counsellor for MIND offering my services free of charge.

As a Person Centred Therapeutic Counsellor/Psychotherapist I believe in the uniqueness of each individual and am committed to helping each client within the therapeutic relationship towards a more fulfilling life and a greater sense of self.

I am bound by BACP Code of Ethics and Practice for Counselling and am subject to its complaints procedure. I am also required to monitor my counselling work with ongoing supervision.

Supervision is a formal arrangement for Counsellors to discuss their work regularly with a specially trained accredited Supervisor and ensures that I continue to address the needs of my clients and those ethical standards are adhered to throughout the counselling process.

Client confidentiality is maintained throughout.
