About me

I am able to take on new clients over video linking at this time. Please be in touch if this is an option you would like to explore.

If you're on this website, chances are that you or someone you love dearly is having a difficult time. Choosing a counsellor can be daunting, especially when we feel uncertain or hopeless. I'd like to encourage you to get in touch without any obligation to contract to work together. But first, here are some things about me you might want to know:

I have experience working with clients aged 13-80 years, with adult couples and with families. In addition to my private practice, I work as a school counsellor two days a week.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I can use a variety of approaches and theories, depending on how you would prefer to work together. Most of all, though, all of my work is rooted in my firm belief that all people have inherent worth and deserve to be loved.

Many people who come to counselling think of themselves or their lives as broken or unmanageable in some vital way.  Together, I'd like to explore the idea that all behaviour and emotions exist for a purpose. I believe that beginning to understand actions and reactions as natural responses to events in our lives helps to set us free from seeing ourselves as flawed and moves us towards practising self-compassion, regardless of what life brings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Integrative Counselling and am a member of the BACP.

I am qualified to work with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma-related difficulties, abuse, attachment difficulties, relationship difficulties, pregnancy and baby loss, addiction, bereavement and more.

I work two days a week as a school counsellor at the Norwich School.

I have experience of working with adolescents, adults, couples and families.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

I am also well informed about Attachment Theory and how it can effect relationships.
