I can provide a safe, confidential space for you to look at what may be causing you distress and explore ways in which you can develop your full potential. I offer private counselling and psychotherapy to individuals in centrally located consulting rooms in Holt, North Norfolk.
I can work with any psychological issue you may wish to explore.
Including the following:

My private consulting rooms are in a central location in Holt, North Norfolk, very close to bus station and parking areas.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

What to expect
Therapy sessions are offered weekly. An initial consultation session will be offered to explore the current difficulty and to establish if it is possible for us to work together. Aims and goals will be discussed in this first session and the length of time you wish to spend in therapy explored. This will be open to review at any time. Fees will be decided too.
A small number of evening sessions are available.
