About 

How I work
I aim to provide a safe space for you to talk about the things that are difficult and may be holding you back in life. I will listen without giving advice or judgement to allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings and hopefully to find your way forward. I believe the relationship is key in counselling and I use a variety of tools to create an individual approach for you.  I offer both short-term and long-term counselling according to your needs which we can discuss together.

Training and qualifications
I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and have a diploma in counselling practice.  My training was mainly focused on the psychodynamic approach, which involves looking at how our past experience influences us in ways we may not be fully aware. I also have a grounding in humanistic and CBT approaches and have done additional training to work with people who have experienced trauma.  As a scientist in my previous career, I’m particularly interested in developments in the field of neurobiology and how this can be applied to help people understand their experiences and symptoms and what we can learn about the process of change. 
I undertake regular continuing professional development to enhance my practice.

Experience
I have volunteered with a number of local mental health charities since 2018 and have worked with a range of different presenting issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement.  I have a particular interest in working with people who have a caring role including mothers and fathers experiencing challenges around the perinatal period. I have also worked with small groups to teach tools such as breathing techniques and dealing with negative thoughts to help people manage their wellbeing.

Where
I work face to face in the Burwell/Newmarket area and I also offer sessions online or by telephone.  Easy parking is available at the venue. 

Fees
My fee is £45 per 50 minute session. I also offer some concessionary sessions for students and those on low income, please contact me for details.
