About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor, BACP accredited, seeing clients face-to-face in the centre of Norwich, or at a reduced rate for sessions by phone.

I know from experience that telephone sessions can work just as well as face-to-face, and can be much more convenient: no travelling time or parking issues, and you can have your sessions from the comfort of your own home as long as you have a confidential place to take the call and are fully focused on the call during the session.

I am trained in Integrative Counselling, which means I can use techniques from many counselling approaches if appropriate. I have a Diploma in CBT, but my approach is always underpinned by being 'person-centred', which means you are in control of the session, and wherever you want to go, I will go with you.

I understand that the idea of counselling can be daunting, but I will do my best to help you through whatever it is you're experiencing. Whether it's anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss of confidence, or any other issue - we can talk through it and find a way forward.

Feel free to call, text or email.

My experience includes counselling in a cancer charity, working with bereaved clients in the NHS, working for CRUSE. I also have experience of a wide range of issues through my private practice including anxiety, generalised anxiety, anger management, abuse, depression, OCD, addictions, relationship issues, panic attacks, low self-esteem, bereavement, eating disorders, stress, smoking, PTSD. I currently work for an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme), where clients come from police forces, government departments, public services, schools, and other organizations. I have also worked in the past with Anxiety UK, helping clients with anxiety, stress and low mood, and I have been a listener with the Samaritans.

I am an accredited member of the BACP, and abide by their code of ethics. I adhere to BACP guidelines on supervision and CPD.
