About me and my therapy practice
I am a person-centred/pluralistic counsellor/psychotherapist, EMDR therapist and Life Coach. I currently offer Zoom, telephone or face to face sessions (Norwich based).
The idea behind the name of my private practice, Clear Reflection, is that when we explore our concerns with a person who is trained and skilled in listening, we can see a clearer picture of ourselves and what is going on in our lives as if we are looking in a mirror. We can also take time to think and reflect out loud, which can make our thought processes clearer so we can more easily see our options and make decisions. The approach taken is a client-led person-centred approach, where a non-judgemental and accepting attitude and a genuine personal interaction are key to the process. While being rooted in a person-centred approach, the therapy is also pluralistic, meaning that ideas, methods and skills from other counselling approaches can also be drawn upon according to client needs. I work in Norwich and am open to online sessions, telephone sessions, outdoor sessions and incorporating creative writing into the therapy. Couples and family/group work is also possible.
EMDR is a specialised approach for reprocessing traumatic memories. Please see more information on my website.
Life coaching is an alternative to therapy, for those who wish to work in a goal-oriented way. I am trained in cognitive behavioural coaching but tailor each coaching session to individual needs.
I am also a part time Associate Lecturer in the School of Psychology at The Open University and teach on the Counselling Certificate course at The Norwich Centre for Personal, Professional and Spiritual Development.
