About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Cloie. I'm a psychotherapist providing both short-term and long-term therapy to clients online and from The Practice Rooms in Norwich.

I hold a postgraduate diploma in counselling & psychotherapy and am currently undertaking a professional doctorate in counselling & psychotherapy at The University of Edinburgh. Prior to beginning private work with clients, I worked as a psychotherapist with adults, young people, and families within schools and various charitable organisations. I have experience working with a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, relationship problems, bereavement, addiction, childhood abuse and complex trauma/CPTSD. I work as an integrative practitioner, drawing upon several major therapeutic approaches and blending these to best suit your individual needs. My core training is in the person-centred and psychodynamic approaches to counselling & psychotherapy and each of these approaches influence my work with clients.

I am extremely passionate about working therapeutically online and the accessibility that online therapy provides to individuals who might otherwise have trouble accessing support. I'm fully qualified to work online, and hold a certificate in online counselling from the Academy for Online Counselling & Psychotherapy. Similarly, I am particularly passionate about working with autistic and neuro-diverse individuals and have extensive personal and professional experience regarding autism, having witnessed the challenges that come with living in a world that is not always understanding or accepting of the neuro-diverse. My doctoral research focuses on experiences of counselling amongst autistic women with traumatic stress, and I am particularly interested in traumatic stress resulting from autism stigma and marginalisation within society (sometimes referred to as invalidation trauma).

Practice description

I currently offer face-to-face sessions from The Practice Rooms in Norwich. When working online, I primarily see clients via Zoom (video or audio), however, I can also offer sessions by email where this is preferred. All sessions are fully secure and you will be sent a password required to join each Zoom session. All emails are sent through an encrypted email service. 

My first session

When you first make contact, we will arrange an initial consultation, the aim of which will be for us to think together about your needs, discuss what you would like to gain from therapy, address any questions or concerns you might have, and decide whether therapy may be helpful for you. If you decide you'd like to begin working with me, we will then arrange a day and time of the week that works for you.

Through a series of regular sessions, we will work together to explore your difficulties and help you to better understand your emotions and thought processes. I provide a safe and non-judgemental space for the exploration of these thoughts and emotions.

To get started, simply send me an email (cloieparfitt@gmail.com) or give me a call (447936118060). I look forward to hearing from you!
