About me

Hi, I am a fully qualified and registered UKCP(UK Council for Psychotherapy) integrative counsellor. My experience with clients includes trauma, overcoming stress, anxiety and panic, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, addiction and lack of confidence. I have a particular interest in counselling victims/survivors of domestic abuse, both men and woman, working with the effects of historical and current abuse. In addition to my counselling training I am a Norfolk Domestic Abuse champion having completed my training with NIDAS(Norfolk Integrated Domestic Abuse Service). I have found through my experience that abuse or trauma is so often the root cause of clients entering into counselling.

As a professional Counsellor I follow the UKCP professional ethical codes of practice. As a result you can rest assured my practice is regulated, with client's safety and best interest 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 remaining compassionate and accepting. My hope is that through our work together, my clients can begin to build a sense of their worth and value that can often be damaged through negative past/current experiences. In doing so, clients can become empowered to live a more fulfilling life, a life that is not existing in survival only but one where they can begin to thrive.

My way of working is always adaptive and co-created in order to meet the individuality and uniqueness of every client. Being an Integrative Counsellor helps to facilitate may work in meeting the vastly differing needs of clients as I am able to draw upon a wide a wide range of counselling models. To add, One of the lasting effects of abuse or trauma is fear, in fact it is fear itself that stops people from truly being able to thrive. When working with fear I collaboratively work with clients to develop strategies and help build the kind of resilience required to overcomes fear. 

It is important to add that prior to my training as a Counsellor I had gained over 15 years experience working as an Holistic Therapist. This experience is invaluable, laying the foundations in how I work as a Counsellor today. Fundamentally my experience taught me how the mind and body are both intrinsically linked, and that when we experience either trauma or abuse we will carry that experience in both our mind and in our body. I find that working with the body as well as the mind creates a more 'whole'  experience of healing and recovery. 

 I currently offer face to face and online sessions, working in both a long and short term basis. My practice is based in both Attleborough and Hethersett, where I offer a safe, calming and respectful environment for you

Please feel free to contact me without obligation to ask any questions. If you are interested, an initial session can be booked to see if we can work together.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
