About me

A warm welcome,

You may have found me because you are struggling. Maybe you've felt like this for a while and you could be feeling lost and hopeless. The counselling I offer is about working together finding new ways forward so you feel less alone.

Whilst I have seen many clients with different concerns I specialise in the following areas;

  • anxiety
  • walking and reflective therapy in nature

A little about Me

I have a holistic view of recovery and wellness. After experiencing depression and anxiety I became a client. My own recovery inspired me to become a counsellor to have the chance to help others, like yourself.

I am a school counsellor at St.Nicholas Priory C.E V.A. Primary School and a Co-facilitator at Great Yarmouth College on the Counselling degree.

The counselling

The person centred theory is focused on creating an environment in which you, the client, will feel free to be yourself. Together we will find ways forward to help you feel well again.

I've worked with a wide range of clients and have experience of knowing what works well. My counselling style will be influenced by who you are and what you are experiencing. I offer techniques for anxiety and stress reduction.

Walking and reflective therapy in nature

Being in nature helps us to be present and feel connected with the World around us. Natural spaces have a calming effect on us, this allows a 'slowing down' which can offer reflection of our feelings and thoughts. We can use the natural resources we find to help make connections to how you may be feeling, sometimes feelings can be more easily expressed through metaphors and the things we see around us.

I offer sessions on the beach in Pakefield and at Carlton Marshes, if you live a little further away we can find somewhere that suits us both. We can walk slowly and can choose to sit if you would prefer.
