'Relationships are the cornerstone of our lives'. I am an experienced counsellor living just outside King's Lynn.
I had counselling myself after going through a particularly difficult time. I realise how important it is to feel at ease with the person you are talking to. To be able to trust a counsellor is vital and to know that what is spoken about stays within the counselling room and is not discussed outside. Although the experience wasn't always comfortable, it was good knowing I was not alone in trying to work through what was going on for me. I felt stronger as a result and happier with who I was. I felt ready to face the world.
My interest in counselling developed during my time as a Samaritan and also as a result of my extensive family work with Home-Start and Sure-Start.
I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space in which to work. I respect and appreciate that each individual's experience is unique and by working together and building a relationship we can explore those experiences together. Looking at the past often helps us understand what's going on now and helps us move forward. I am also able to offer very practical strategies on how to cope with anger, low self esteem, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and self confidence.
I work with adults on a variety of different issues such as depression, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, lack of self confidence, anger, addiction, work related problems, lack of motivation, relationship issues, divorce and separation, emotional, physical and sexual abuse, low self-esteem, stress, bereavement, self-harm, loneliness, suicidal feelings, issues from childhood, ocd.
I work with couples who are experiencing relationship issues. Relationship issues often highlight other underlying issues such as self-esteem, depression, anxiety and communication.
So why not phone me or come along for an informal chat to see how counselling can help you.
I provide long and short term counselling with my client deciding when the time feels right to finish. I have a private practice at home where parking is available.
In addition I have experience as a group facilitator for the One to One Project, running confidence groups.
I work within the ethical framework of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I am committed to my own personal and professional development in order to provide the best possible service.
I undertake regular, professional supervision each month.
