"I believe that the past is creating us and because of the past this is where we are and who we are today, but by accepting this today we can choose who we want be  tomorrow." 
“Things that seem to be unchangeable can be changed, it's a matter of point of view. ”
My name is Barbara Gooch.  Originally an only child from a Catholic family in Poland, I relocated to England in 2006.  Today, I am happily married and a mother of two; including one young son with special needs for whom I am the primary carer.
Throughout my life, I’ve looked after other people; sometimes helping them solve their problems and sometimes just being a supportive friend, offering guidance and being there to listen.  This has become my passion.
My main ambition soon developed into a desire to be a Psychotherapist.  Following graduation from my Degree, and having learnt to speak English, I went on to study in Psychology and Psychotherapy.  I have since achieved my dream and now I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist with a flourishing practice.  I now use my skills to support others through difficulty and to help other people achieve their dreams, too.
I have received a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills Dip.Hyp and I’ve become a professional member of the National Hypnotherapy Society (MHS). Afterwards I opened my own hypnotherapy practice and became self-employed.
I have since received a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Dip.PC and I’ve become a professional member of National Counselling Society (Acc)  
I have also attained an Integrated Advanced Professional  Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Ad.Prof.Dip.PC
Alongside running my practice I'm working in the Children and Young Peoples Services, Suffolk County Council in Leiston Childrens Centre.
I feel very passionate about what I do therefore my aim is to create a safe and warm environment for my clients where they can relax and feel comfortable and then explore their difficulties.
I feel very privileged to be able to assist my clients and watch how they grow and become stronger.
