I am an experienced BACP Senior Accredited and Registered counsellor a private practice near Framlingham for Counselling and Counsellor Supervision. I have been working in this field since 1997. I see individuals, aged 16 and over, for time-limited and long-term work. I also worked for Family Care Counselling Service in Waltham Abbey for 14 years, so I have a wide range of experience in general counselling. I offer face-to-face and telephone counselling.
My approach to counselling is based on admiration and respect for my clients. My intention is to provide a safe space for us to explore the issues affecting you. Although I will not give you advice, I will support you in discovering what is best for you. I am an adoption counsellor working with Barnardo's LINK Adoption Services to provide counselling to those affected by adoption, including birth mothers, adopters, or those who have been adopted. I have also undergone further training in Attachment Focused counselling. I am qualified to provide Adoption Support work (through Barnardo’s) if you are an adopter, adoptee or birth parent or are in any way directly affected by adoption.
I am also an Ex-CRUSE Counsellor with many years experience in bereavement work.
