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 also happy to work creatively if that is something that you feel would help move you forward.
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you ”
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.
Degree from Roehampton University
