About me and my therapy practice

Life presents us all with challenges from time to time. Seeking professional support at such times, and finding a therapist who is right for you, can be daunting. I hope the information here and on my website (www.heartofnorfolktherapy.co.uk) will help you decide if you would like to have an introductory session with me to see if you feel we can work together. 

My counselling practice is grounded in the person-centred approach and influenced by my practice of Focusing. Person-centred counselling holds that you the client have a vast resource for self-actualization within you, and that this becomes activated in a natural way when you feel truly heard, seen, and felt by another person. Focusing invites you to slow down and pay closer attention to your inner bodily experiencing. It has much in common with mindfulness, but aims to be more specifically therapeutic. You'll find a fuller description on my website.

I try to offer a safe and welcoming space where we can sit together in presence and bring our attention and tender curiosity to all aspects of your experiencing.

To get started, please call for a chat. We can have an initial consultation by phone, at no cost, where we might discuss what you hope to get from your counselling. Then you can decide if you'd like to arrange an introductory session with me. I offer this 60 minute session half price, to help you get a feel for how I work and whether you would like to continue.

Sessions can be arranged via skype if necessary. I work mainly with individual adults, young adults, and couples. I work from my home, which is accessible from Fakenham, Dereham, and Holt.
