We are a private counselling practice operating in Cambridge, North Essex, West Suffolk and East Herts. Our counsellors are Tim Hooper and Tanis Howell. Tanis also provides Professional Supervision from her Cambridge Practice.

We are both registered members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, providing a warm and friendly, safe and confidential counselling experience for every client. We work flexibly and prefer to adapt our approach to suit your needs, rather than working to one particular counselling approach. We describe the way we work as “interpersonal”, that is to say, we work with you, your feelings and your own life experience. In counselling terms this is called an integrative person-centred approach.

Working at your pace, we will help you look at coping techniques and the underlying causes of many issues, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Low mood

  • Life’s changes and challenges

  • Gaining self-understanding

  • Coming to terms with the past

  • Relationships

It can be very difficult making the decision to go and see a counsellor or therapist, and choosing the right person to talk to is really important. If you would like to talk to us about how we work and to learn more about counselling, please contact us.
