‘20 Certificate of Excellence

As a human givens psychotherapist and counsellor, (based near Ipswich) I'm proud to offer practical, fast and effective help to anyone suffering from depression, anxiety and stress, panic attacks, PTSD, phobias, OCD, anger, addictions, low self-esteem, self harm, bereavement, insomnia and more. I have had a lot of success in helping clients with anger, even those with chronic anger. I also have particular experience in working with the effects of domestic abuse, including less obvious forms such as emotional or coercive control. I use a variety of up-to-date, proven techniques to help you move on with your life as quickly as possible. My fee is £45 per session (one and a half hours for initial session) and £55 for a home visit at 45p per mile. Following the initial session, sessions last between 60-75 minutes. However, I do not clock watch, and sessions may be longer if needed. PLEASE NOTE I AM UNABLE TO RESPOND TO ANYONE REQUESTING A QUOTE AS THE INFORMATION IS HERE (IT COSTS ME MONEY EVERY TIME I RESPOND) BUT I WILL RESPOND TO ANYONE WHO LEAVES ME A PERSONAL MESSAGE. As a registered nurse and health visitor of 35 years, 22 of those in the Army, I've seen first hand the effects that emotional difficulties and traumatic life events can have on individuals and their families. Everyday activities that most of us take for granted can cause severe stress. Now a qualified integrative counsellor psychotherapist, I offer short and long term counselling in a discreet, calm and confidential place at my home near Ipswich (IP9 1HS). Working one to one, I will give you the time that you need, when you need it, creating a bespoke therapy for you. My fee is £45 per session (one and a half hours) and £55 for a home visit plus milage at 45p per mile. PLEASE NOTE I AM UNABLE TO RESPOND IF YOU REQUEST A QUOTE AS THE INFORMATION IS HERE (IT COSTS ME MONEY EVERY TIME I REPLY ) BUT I WILL ALWAYS RESPOND TO ANYONE WHO LEAVES ME A PERSONAL MESSAGE. I am trained in adult and children's safeguarding and have an enhanced DBS check. I am one of a network of counsellors offering FREE counselling to ex-soldiers throughout the UK with the charity PTSD Resolution. I also accept referrals from the organisation Red Poppy (Police, Fire and Ambulance Services), NHS and Suffolk Mind. I also provide Clinical supervision for staff at Leeway Domestic Violence and Abuse Services.

What do you love most about your job?

The rewarding life experience of Army life, working at a school and as a health visitor was incredibly helpful while I trained as a human givens counsellor, and continues to inspire me. It's made me passionate about helping young people and adults to build a "personal toolbox" to empower them to handle difficult situations, build confidence and resilience and feel life is enjoyable and rewarding again.

Why should our clients choose you?

The principle behind human givens therapy is a simple one: that we are all born with the same set of physical and emotional needs, and we're all equipped with the resources to meet them. These are the "human givens", and it's when we're missing one of those needs that we experience emotional or mental health difficulties.

Our therapy is different from traditional psychotherapy approaches. A human givens psychotherapist will work with you to swiftly identify which of your needs is falling short. It's then a matter of giving you the knowledge and techniques to redress your balance. You'll get a "toolbox" to use for yourself, so you can find happiness and realise your life potential once again. The process is much faster and easier to go through than other therapies, often taking only a short number of sessions.

Counselling FAQs

Expand all

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
