Counselling Ipswich

Hello, I’m an Accredited Counsellor working from a private and relaxed setting which will give you the space to talk about whatever is troubling you. I work with a variety of different issues. At the moment I am only working via Skype or telephone. I have worked with many clients this way and it has proved to be very beneficial to most clients.


I also work with couples experiencing problems in their relationship and help them to find a resolution which could either be together or apart. I also work with people who have decided to separate but want to remain amicable. 


If you would like to discuss things further or book an appointment please don’t hesitate to send me a message. I welcome clients from Ipswich, Capel St. Mary, Sproughton, Kesgrave, Martlesham, Woodbridge, Bramford, Claydon and surrounding areas. 



Person-centred counselling

I am trained in Person-Centred Counselling, which is an approach that I truly believe in, from my own personal experience. It helped me to see things so much more clearly and after each session I was able to make more sense of things.


After gaining this insight I was able to move forward with my life in a more confident and positive way. I feel that my own experiences and subsequently training as a Counsellor has definitely helped me to understand other people and to empathise with their problems.

Online therapy

I have worked with many clients via Skype or telephone and it has proved to be very beneficial to most clients. I work with individual clients and couples in this way and at the moment I'm not able to offer face to face sessions due to COVID restrictions. 

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

People have adapted really well to remote sessions during lockdown and it has been a lifeline to many. I feel that it is the only way for myself to work during this time that offers complete safety, and if I returned to face to face sessions and come into contact with somebody, who unknowingly has the virus the repercussions of this would be extremely stressful for all of my clients and for me and it just isn't worth the risk.
