Adam Thomas BSc (hons), Registered member UKCP.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. I specialise in overcoming stress, anxiety
and panic, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem and lack of
confidence. Finding the right counsellor for you is vital so please feel free to read
my profile to find out if what I offer suits you needs.
Modern day life is stressful and full of pressures that can have a huge negative
impact on our lives. Counselling offers you an opportunity to explore issues and
difficulties that you are experiencing within a confidential, safe and respectful
environment. Through counselling you can develop a greater understanding of
the difficulties that you are facing and a greater understanding of yourself, while
in the process recognise and draw upon personal strengths that can enable you
to grow and deal with life’s challenges.
I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and accredited member of UKCP,
following UKCP professional codes of practice. The relationship between the
client and myself is at the heart of how I work. I endeavour to offer a relationship
in which you will feel heard and understood, while at the same time offering a
compassionate and accepting relationship. My aim is that through counselling,
my clients are able to develop a strong sense of worth and value to enable a
healthier more balanced life.
As an Integrative counsellor I am able to draw upon different schools of
counselling that enable my approach to be flexible in meeting the different needs
of each individual client. I use my skills to help clients develop new strategies to
overcome stress and anxiety. I also help clients explore their past, understand
the impact this has on the present, and give rise to awareness that can empower
change for a more fulfilling future. I have 18 years experience as a holistic
therapist, paying particular attention to the connection between the mind and
body. I bring my experience and understanding of the mind/body connection
into my counselling practice, drawing on research in neurophysiology to
enhance my work. I have witnessed firsthand the positive impact in my clients
lives when the mind and body are working in sync. Results include a reduction in
symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression and a more robust sense of self that
enables life’s challenges to be faced and not feared. Most importantly, a sense of
inner calm that is indicative of feeling secure in who we are.
My areas of expertise are working with stress, anxiety and panic, depression,
relationship issues, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. I am based South of
Norwich, where I offer both short and long term counselling. My practice is based in both Attleborough and Hethersett, where I offer a safe, calm and respectful environment.
Please feel free to contact me without obligation to ask any questions. If you are
interested, an initial session can be booked to explore your reasons for seeking
counselling and see how we can work together.
