I moved to Suffolk 7 years ago and you can read about me below. If you or a friend would like a counselling session or assessment on Skype or Whatsapp – please contact me.
I work as a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist within the guidelines of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists,with integrity, regular personal development and supervision. I was also a senior counsellor at ChildLine in London where I ran my own Private Practice before transferring online I am also helping parents of teenagers with mental health issues in Suffolk whilst studying CBT and Brief Solution Focussed Therapy.
I trained originally in couples counselling, completing over 500 hours with Relate, including working in a Crisis Counselling Clinics in a deprived area. Generally, I have hundreds of hours working with clients behind me, working with young professionals, individuals and couples on a wide variety of problems including depression, anxiety, relationship issues and stress. I am also an experienced consultant in the Arts and Humanities and have worked with many Boards and high level individuals, often in a coaching role.
I worked with my PAT dog (Pet As Therapy) called Monty in hospices and centres for troubled adolescents until he died. Since then I have written a book called What To Do When Your Pet Dies which sells on Amazon around the world. I lost my 14 year old greyhound earlier this yea and help with life after racing and I offer owners with tips and hints on how to deal with difficult dogs – or is it difficult owners?
I work OnLine via Skype (fiennesd) Whatsapp and email so that I can interact more readily with people all over the world.
I was featured on the BBC’s Mollie Green programme on Animals and On the Sofa with Radio Suffolk.
