As we all face new realities  I currently offer phone and /or Skype, FaceTime, Zoom counselling  sessions.

I offer a free initial telephone consultation so we can decide together if I may be able to help

Appointments are usually Mon - Thursday between 8.30am- 7.30pm

Fridays between 9am and 2.30 pm

I try to accommodate individual needs and circumstances where possible. 

About me and my therapy practice

I have providing  professional counselling for just over 15 years seeing clients in private practice for 11 years.

At the heart of almost all of my professional work has been the commitment to help others, working within the public sector (the prison service as a prison officer for 17 years ) and then within charitable organisations these include The Matthew Project West Norfolk, The One to One Project King’s Lynn and Dhiverse Cambridgeshire.

I am registered member of the MBACP and attend regular supervision and my own personal therapy,  because I believe that it is important to be open to examining my own thoughts, feelings and “blind spots”. Mindful of the value and trust placed within me  when someone seeks help, or wishes to be listened to and heard. 

I am committed to offering provision that is reliable, consistent and available.

Practice description

I have a small discrete private practice located in a small village in West Norfolk.

Located just outside King‘s Lynn with easy access to the A17. 

My first session

Exploring if counselling might be helpful usually begins with an initial assessment appointment, this is an opportunity to explore if counselling maybe helpful for you and if I am someone you feel you can talk openly to. During our first meeting I will do my best to answer any questions or address any thoughts or concerns you may have.

Finding the right counsellor or therapist for you is important you are investing your time money and trust in your counselling. Any ethically practicing counsellor will welcome any questions you may have about their counselling service or any questions about counselling in general. Sometimes it can feel daunting making that first contact but it is worth your time emailing or calling a few different counsellors, finding someone you feel you can connect with will give your counselling the best start.
