About me and my therapy practice

I’m glad you have found your way here – it means you have realised something might not be quite right, are unsatisfied with your life, or find it overwhelming. You may feel like no one hears you, lonely, isolated, stuck or even trapped. Perhaps you would like to tell your story and be heard. Maybe you have found yourself with low confidence, painful feelings of ‘not good enough’, or having experienced abuse or recurrent losses. Feelings of loss and grief can be a result of not only death, but job loss, miscarriage, a bad relationship or relationship ending, historical abuse, or grief for a life not fully lived. Grief can feel very overwhelming and painful. Maybe you find certain situations triggering, overwhelming or unbearable?

Through working together, we can process painful feelings, and perhaps become more engaged with the present, and even make plans and goals for the future.

I am an Integratively trained counsellor which means I incorporate Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive theories into my work with you. I have a particular interest in Attachment Theory – I believe our experiences of childhood affect our adult relationships and how we view ourselves in the here and now.

I have 5 years counselling experience - 3 years working with an eating disorder charity, and 3 years with a mental health charity. I would say my specialisms are difficult relationships with parents and historic abuse.

Practice description

I came to the profession by sitting in the client’s chair myself, and embarking on my own journey of healing and self-awareness. I know how absolutely daunting it can feel, but I believe in the power of a supportive and nurturing environment so much, that I would like to offer the same to you.

My goal is to listen and hear you, support you, offer perspective, help you to get to know yourself and work together to understand why you do the things you do. I believe that understanding our behaviours leads to choice, and when we have choices, this can lead to change, and even lead to acceptance of what cannot be changed.

When we are anxious, stressed or depressed, we may turn to coping strategies - some are helpful, some not. We can explore how and why coping strategies have become destructive (eg binge eating, purging, self-harm, drinking), and find ways to replace these with other strategies for emotional management. We can look at thought patterns, and feelings about yourself and others. We might examine present and early relationships, to try to make sense of them.

Change can be hard, there is no doubt and it feel uncomfortable at times, but with the right encouragement and environment, I have experienced that a more balanced, and even a happier life, is entirely possible.

I offer in-person appointments (unfortunately I do not offer online at this time). The therapy space is located in central Norwich close to carparks and major bus routes. I offer a no obligation £25 first session.
