Denise McMullen MBACP Accredited
I am an experienced registered BACP accredited individual and couple therapist with over 15 years experience.
Many people find themselves facing very difficult personal circumstances and would really welcome a safe caring nurturing space where they can talk in confidence and feel heard and understood.
My person centred practice allows me to work in a flexible creative way, unique for every client. It is my experience as a therapist and my experience of being a client, that when client and therapist are able to engage in a committed authentic trusting accepting therapeutic relationship, clients can feel truly heard and supported in finding their own voice. My aim is to offer this to clients. We are then free to gain clearer insights and understanding for ourselves, helping us to live more meaningful lives and to make better choices for ourselves.
It is my belief that we all have the capacity to change.
I also work as a support worker. I work with people who need support in living independently, helping them to access activities which they will find meaningful, fun and enriching, supporting them to work towards fulfilling their potential.
Earlier in my life, I spent many years working in the business world, at one period in a busy high pressured press office, amongst other roles.
I also have a love of the outdoors and recently climbed to the top of a very tall tree !
I offer counselling for people on a long or short term basis, depending on their requirements.
I can offer sessions in Norwich and in Wymondham.
I have counselled clients, experiencing a wide range of difficulties, which have included the following : depression, low self esteem, bereavement, work related issues, attachment issues, anxiety, bullying, relationship issues, stress, trauma, loss and change, suicidal thoughts, anger issues, eating disorders.
