Jennie Cummings-Knight (Golden Leaf Counselling) MA, MBACP, PGCE, FHEA
Golden Leaf Counselling - Making Life Changes...(Cromer area but including Sheringham, Holt, Norwich and Aylsham)
Mature and Experienced Counsellor available: Stress, Anxiety or depression? low self esteem or anger problems...? relationship issues? or a bereavement or loss of some kind to deal with (including divorce, separation, dementia)? Anything that you feel is holding you back in your life will benefit from the help of a sympathetic and listening ear.
I have over 18 years experience in the counselling world, teaching and listening, and plenty of varied life experience, (living in various locations) to help you understand yours better. Gentle challenge will also help you explore how you can be more empowered in your own situation.
Counselling is about looking at other options to life's problems, with someone outside your usual family and friends network. This helps because the counsellor does not have anything to do with your existing relationships and so can offer a more neutral perspective.
Golden Leaf offers an integrative service, (drawing upon CBT and Gestalt techniques within a Person Centred base). An additional specialism is in working with addictions and dependencies such as alcohol problems, which are often linked to how you feel about yourself in general and to your relationships.
Couples Counselling: I have 60 hours of training over 6 years and a Certificate Accredited by ISPC (2019)
If you are a trainee counsellor needing therapy hours, or a counsellor requiring supervision these are also options - please look at my website for further details.
I also provide counselling for TRAINEE COUNSELLORS - please get in touch for student rates.
