Suffolk & Essex Counsellor Edward Silver BA(Hons)Registered MBACP
Qualified & experienced professional counsellor & LINK Approved Adoption Counsellor. My counselling practice is based in the quiet village of Cavendish on the West Suffolk/ North Essex border, centrally located for Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Hadleigh, Braintree, Halstead & Haverhill.
At times we can all struggle to cope with what life brings, we can be left feeling sad, confused, dissatisfied, or distressed. Relationships do not always go as smoothly as you'd hoped. Children can have difficulties. Things aren't brilliant at work. You may be coming to terms with loss or painful memories from your past or you may have worries about the future. Being able to talk to a non-judgemental counsellor in a safe confidential environment can be a very therapeutic experience, allowing difficulties to be unpacked, worked through and resolved.
In my counselling & psychotherapy practice I offer you the opportunity to be heard without judgement and I endeavor to create a nurturing, safe environment built on respect and understanding. I strongly believe that the trust that can be built between two people, is the most important ingredient to any therapeutic relationship.
Some of the issues I can support you with; Anxiety (GAD) - Depression - Stress - Relationship Issues - Adoption - Affairs/Separation - Addiction -Bereavement -Anger - Trauma - OCD - PTSD - Sexual Abuse - Domestic Violence/ Abuse - Emotional Abuse - Panic Attacks- Phobias - Low Self Esteem - Child Related Issues - School Refusal - Eating Disorders - Marriage Counselling - Sexual Problems - Gender Identity - Parenting Issues - Transition - Infertility - Existential Issues - Bipolar - Personal Development - ADHD - Parent/Child Relationship Issues.
As an integrative counsellor, it is my philosophy that every person is unique and we all think, feel and react in different ways, because of this I feel it is important to work holistically with each of my clients by integrating different theories in my practice to produce a unique therapy adapted to suit your particular needs.
In my training I have developed a skills set which includes;
integrative talking psychotherapy, cbt, attachment focused therapy, relationship counselling, mindfulness, creative art and therapeutic play therapies.
If you decide that I am the right counsellor for you, we will work together with what you bring, with the understanding that we will not simply examine the problem/issue in isolation but as a part of your world, seeing it in the wider context of your life and history.
As your therapist I will not give you advice or tell you what to do. Instead I use my skills, intuition and training to support you in finding your own way forward, while rediscovering and building upon your own self esteem and confidence.
Talking things through with a trained counsellor can help you to recognise and use your inner resources to cope in times of stress, anxiety, bereavement, depression and emotional upheaval.
I offer new clients either short term solution focused counselling (8-12 weeks) or on going psychotherapy to Adults & Children & Young People, depending on their particular needs.
Appointments available from 9am to 9pm Monday to Friday
Early morning, daytime or evening sessions.
My counselling practice is located in Cavendish on the A1092 between Clare & Long Melford, close to Glemsford, Pentlow, Great Yeldham & within easy access of Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Hadleigh, Haverhill & Halstead. Parking is Free Local Bus Information
