About me and my therapy practice
I am a person-centred therapist working in Norwich, UK. I work with individuals and couples (relationship counselling) online, by telephone and in person.
Counselling can help in many situations.
You may be feeling distressed by patterns of behaviour or emotions. There may be a specific challenge such as conflict at home or work, a bereavement, trauma, feelings of depression or anxiety. Or you may simply have a general sense that things aren't right.
Choosing to seek support is the first step towards resolving your difficulties.
I offer a facilitative counselling relationship, helping you to connect with yourself more deeply. This is an opportunity to get under the surface of any problems, gain greater self-awareness and develop new strategies. It can lead to changes in how you see things, how you act, how you think and feel about yourself and others.
As well as individuals, I also work with couples in relationships. This can include romantic partners, siblings, parents and (adult)children, business partners, amongst others.
I hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling, and am an Assistant Professor at Nottingham University where I deliver the Person-Centred ExperientialCounselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) course, which provides are cognised qualification for counsellors working in the IAPT programme within the NHS. I also tutor on the Masters in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy at Nottingham. Previously I have been a tutor at the Norwich Centre on the BACP-accredited Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling.
I have completed specialist training in working with couples and relationships, and have also completed training in Emotion Focused Psychotherapy at the University of Strathclyde. Before becoming a counsellor I worked in scientific research environments for over 15 years, and I hold a PhD in a scientific discipline.
Sessions are for 60 minutes, usually at the same time and day each week, and I charge £45 per session for individual clients and £50 per session for couples. These can be online using Zoom, by telephone, or in person at St George's Works in Norwich. You are welcome to contact me to ask any questions before deciding whether to go ahead and book an initial exploratory session.
