Counselling Practice in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, centrally located for ease of access. BACP Accredited, qualified integrative counsellor and CBT counsellor. Link Adoption Counsellor.
Quite a few years ago now, a life changing event caused me to re-evaluate my future. With the help of my family and friends and a great counsellor, I began to move forward, to understand what makes me who I am and I learnt how to look after myself, that was a particularly steep learning curve.
I then went on to train to become a counsellor in Bury St Edmunds and now I am able to provide my clients with what my counsellor did for me:
- Was non judgemental
- Respected my confidence
- Listened and really heard me
- Guided me but never told me what to do
- Helped me learn to look after myself emotionally
- Helped me with coping strategies
- Helped me acknowledge where my present actions came from
I offer one to one counselling to explore any issues you may have confidentially and in a safe and quiet environment. My counselling approach is integrative and at the initial session which is up to 60 minutes long, we will discuss your requirements and what you would hope to achieve from counselling. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes long.
Some of the issues covered include loss & grief, depression, anger & anxiety, relationship issues and OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and many more. To see them please feel free to visit my website.
My belief is that to be an effective counsellor, you need to be all of the above, but one thing that is so important is that you need to provide the hope that things can get better as they did for me!
I have been a Counsellor for around 12 years. I set up my own practice, Bury St Edmunds Counselling and it’s a busy practice. I also work for the NHS part-time which I also enjoy.
I also gained a BA (Hons) in Integrative Counselling to ensure that I am highly qualified and can offer my clients knowledge as well as experience and a journey which I hope will be life changing.
