I offer a welcoming, compassionate and professional service in Ipswich, Suffolk. UKCP Accredited and BACP Registered Counsellor. Short and longer-term Counselling / Psychotherapy.
When faced with a crisis, impasse, or other stressful life situation, we all intuitively seek comfort, support and guidance. We can usually receive this from friends, partners, and family, and while it initially makes us feel better, it often isn’t enough to resolve what challenges us or prevent it from reoccurring. Real and lasting changes are possible, but they require trying new approaches to old problems.
Effective counselling/psychotherapy is essentially a conversation that deepens over time with a focus on helping you better understand yourself and feel capable of making different choices. I believe depression, anxiety and low mood are symptoms of emotional conflicts that are not fully understood and integrated. My work focuses on helping you gain greater clarity and balance and expands your emotional experience and potential for making new, more productive choices.
I would like to acknowledge you have made the first step towards getting the support you may have wanted for some time now. I aim to make this part of the process as easy as possible for you, for example, if you prefer, we can speak over the phone before we meet face-to-face. Finding a counsellor can be a daunting process but you should trust yourself to know when the therapeutic relationship feels nurturing.
