About me

I am professionally trained and qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Norwich and Ipswich. I'm registered with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I offer both short and long term counselling, working with Individuals, Couples and Adolescents.

I completed my training in 2011 and worked for a large Charity in Suffolk. My Clients were varied, both male and female ranging in age from 18 to 70 plus. In 2013, continuing my work at the Charity, I set up my Private Practice in Suffolk and later on expanded my offer to Norwich. Clients are referred either through word of mouth or the internet. .

About Counselling

Counselling is based on the belief that “talking can help”.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment for you to discuss, explore and experience your innermost thoughts and feelings with a trained person.

It could be about coming to terms with issues or changes in your life, or it may be about making personal changes to the way you see and react to your world.

Feeling comfortable with your therapist or counsellor is important as it affects how well the treatment works. Talking therapy creates a space in which, for 50 minutes, the focus is completely on us.

Professional counselling is about meeting the needs and objectives of the client and not those of the counsellor! I call my approach "client-centred" and as an Integrative Counsellor I use techniques from different counselling approaches to match my client's needs.
