“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you ”


Hi, Welcome to the Lighthouse Counselling Website. My name is Rachel Clarke and I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor based in the Walton area of Felixstowe.


Coming to counselling  can be a difficult and scary or embarrassing prospect, but whatever the reason for considering counselling, I can provide support and understanding in a safe and confidential space.

I aim to provide a warm and caring environment where we can explore together any issues or difficulties you are experiencing. My approach is for my counselling to be tailor made around what will help you. I am a member of creative counsellors and am happy to work creatively if you feel would help move you forward.




I live in Felixstowe  with my husband, three children and dog.  My current counselling room is a comfortable, modern and fully accessible  room at the back  from St Mary's Church, Walton. I am happy to counsel people of any faith or none.


I am a qualified integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor and began my career in 2009 as a school counsellor in Stowmarket, working for Suffolk Youth and Connexions Service. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and am fully insured. I have worked  with children, young people and adults, and have particular experience of working with carers and young carers.
