Primary Location

I am a MBACP and UKRC Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor with over 20 years of clinical experience working within the NHS and within my own private practice.

I offer therapy session from my log cabin set in the beautiful tranquil and peaceful surroundings of Halesworth a historic Suffolk Market Town, away from the business and noise of everyday life. in this space you can explore in a safe, confidential and non judgemental way any concerns, difficulties or blocks you maybe experiencing that affects your private, personal, family or working life. My therapy is individualised for every client combining proven effective counselling techniques to help you make better sense and understandings of the issues affecting your health and wellbeing. I work with individuals, couples and children to promote transformation and balance.My therapy room is a purposely designed wooden cabin, set in a mature garden surrounded by trees, shrubs and nature. It sits in a secluded, private setting away from the stresses and business of everyday life. The interior is warm and inviting enabling a supportive, and non-judgemental space for clients to explore and reflect on any difficulties they maybe experiencing in their personal, family or working life. Together, in this space we can identify your unique individual needs to promote health and well-being.
