'' I will endeavour to impose no identities upon you, but will invite you to become yourself without shame or fear''

Welcome to censago psychotherapeutic counselling...

This small website provides basic information on the current range of services that censago psychotherapeutic counselling has to offer.

If you require further information or clarification on anything listed below, or would like the opportunity to discuss your specific needs further, then please don't hesitate to contact me today. Your call will always be welcome. 

What is Counselling / Psychotherapy ?
Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.

People may choose to have counselling because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives, or feel a sense of isolation....at other times, even if an individual has the most supportive family and friends, they may find it difficult if not impossible to explain why, for example, they may be feeling anxious and or depressed.                    

It is often easier to talk about personal, family, or relationship issues with someone who is independent of friends, family or work colleagues, and who is also non-judgemental and empathic to your individual situation.

Other life issues and events which can be very difficult to deal with include anxiety, depression, relationships both past and present,  loss and bereavement, abusive situations and abuse both past and present, divorce, redundancy, health issues, bullying and so on.           

However, you do not have to be in crisis or on the verge of one, before choosing to have counselling. You may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general, or be seeking balance or harmony in your life.

All of these reasons and more will bring people to counselling.

A bit about me.....
I am an experienced,  professionally trained and qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor....a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (MBACP) and listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists. This register is accredited by the Profesional Standards Authority for Health & Social Care.

I am also a founder member of The International Healing Fellowship (TIHF) a Suffolk based 'not for profit' organisation run by volunteers, all of whom seek to alleviate the 'dis-stress & dis-ease' of the individuals they work with.

I offer a broadly Humanisitic or 'Person Centred' approach, my whole ethos being one of non judgemental Unconditional Positive Regard, combined with empathic understanding and an open and engaging Listening style.

My consulting room is centrally located in Mid / Central Suffolk, and I offer a private, safe, accessable and affordable service, individually designed around you.

censago Counselling Supervision
As a supervisor, I make use of various models of clinical supervision in order to facilitate full and open discussion around all aspects of supervisees work.  This process will include both formative and normative functions, as well as a restorative one.

The restorative aspect of supervision may include aspects of the supervisees life and personal experiences, both past and current, though this does not replace personal therapy, should that be deemed appropriate or necessary. 

Sessions are typically of 1.5 hrs. duration, usually taking place monthly, with regular review periods built in. 

censago supervision offers a boundaried and contractual space, in which understanding and enhancement of the supervisees work can take place.
