I’m Charlotte, a qualified therapeutic counsellor from Hadleigh in Suffolk.

Now in my late fifties, I've weathered a variety of work and indeed, life experiences. Having been “at the sharp end” for a few years, I am very aware that life doesn’t always run smoothly and the challenges with which any one of us can be presented often require some help and support. As an empathic practitioner, I can offer you such help and support. By understanding and respecting your value as an individual and that of your own unique situation, I will tailor your therapy specifically to you and your needs.

I have lots of experience working with a variety of people in different situations. I believe that talking therapies should be available to all so, along with my private practice and my work in education, I spent two years as a voluntary counsellor with Iceni, Ipswich and I am also a registered therapist with Anxiety UK. I am therefore happy to negotiate pricing options in some circumstances. I offer face-to-face counselling from my cosy, comfortable therapy space or online therapy for those who prefer not to travel. My practice is accessible for people who use a wheelchair.

As a pluralistic counsellor, I can offer you choice from a variety of approaches, depending on what you feel works for you. Because I am also a qualified hypnotherapist, I can offer hypnotherapy alongside counselling. Always determined to provide the best that I can, I engage with different continuing professional development opportunities, to ensure that my knowledge and understanding of hypnotherapy and counselling is current. I monitor my own practice by attending regular supervision for myself and I am committed to my own self-development.

Many people worry that, when they attend counselling, they will be expected to talk about their past in great detail. Whilst exploring past events can, in some situations be very helpful, it is by no means necessary. Discussing the past is just one approach to therapy. Pluralistic counselling is a humanistic, integrated approach. This means that you, my client and I, your therapist collaborate together to find the most effective ways to help you. Much of what I do with my clients involves us working to establish goals, make decisions and find solutions. I can offer you different options, but it is you that chooses which to take.

I believe that the most important part of counselling is the creation of a trusting relationship. I will offer you a safe, empathic and non-judgmental space for you to explore your life and your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, enabling you to discuss alternatives and try things for size. When all is said and done, you are the expert in your own place is to accompany you for a little while on your journey as you discover those strengths within yourself, helping you to achieve your goals and fulfil your potential.
