About me and my therapy practice
If you are considering the brave step of talking about things that may be becoming too difficult to endure by yourself, I aim to provide a warm, accepting welcome for you and your experiences. I will sensitively help you to explore them, without judgement.
I help with anxiety, depression, stress, panic, bereavement and specialise in rape and sexual abuse, including in childhood. My approach is empathetic, to gently work with the most private issues. Free parking. Short term and mindfulness calming techniques are available.
I also work at The Sue Lambert Trust, a specialist counselling service for rape and sexual abuse survivors, as well as at Mind in Norwich, where I am a Credentialed Therapist.
As the key to progress in therapy is really about developing a relationship of trust with your counsellor, I choose to work in the person centred approach where your experiences are heard and respected as the most valuable element, in complete confidence. Your unique situation is the very centre of the counselling.
Mindfulness based meditation techniques (where appropriate) can be used for calming and gaining insight.
I learned many techniques over 25 years, from highly respected and qualified Meditation teachers, including The Dalai Lama, The Karmapa, Mingyur Rinpoche, Geshe Tashi Tsering, Martin Goodson, Garry Gelade and many others. I studied and practised in London, Wales, US, France, Catalonia, Taiwan, India and Nepal.
The Mindfulness meditations I teach are non-religious and along the lines of Jon Kabat-Zinn's westernised model of training.
I work mainly during office hours with some availability in the evenings and Saturday mornings at a higher rate.
