I have sat in the client's chair myself, so I know how important it is to feel at ease when talking about the things that concern us.
It is often difficult to share things that are very personal, and taking the first step towards getting help can often be a bit daunting, so with this in mind I will do all I can to make you feel welcome, offering a confidential service that is relaxed and non-judgemental,for both individuals and couples.
As an integrative counsellor I work with different therapeutic approaches, and working with you, will help you to find your own way through the issues that are causing pain or concern.
Bring what ever concerns you have, whether they be about
relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and change, indeed any issues you wish to discuss, and I will do all that I can to make those first steps as easy as I can.
Five minutes from either Reepham or the the A1067 Fakenham Road, and just 20 minutes from Norwich I practice from a comfortable room that is quiet and private in a peaceful setting.
Feel free to call me on my land line or mobile numbers, or send me and email. If I am unable to answer straight away I will get back to you as soon as I am able to.
There is a large parking area also available.
