We might find times in our lives when we are struggling to cope, feel anxious or depressed, lost and hopeless, or feel unhappy in relationships. Therapy can be a place to make sense of experiences both past and present, exploring repeated patterns that might keep us stuck and prevent us from making the changes we would like to in life.
My style of working is collaborative, where we explore together - in a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space - the difficulties that you are currently facing. My aim is to help you work through the issues you choose to bring, gaining insight, understanding and compassion for the things that may have shaped you and the way you relate to yourself and others, as well as finding ways forward in the present.
I offer individual face-to-face counselling for adults aged 18+. My fee for a 50-minute session is £50. I provide long-term or short-term therapy, depending on your needs. Zoom and telephone sessions are also available. Please contact me to arrange an initial, free-of-charge, 20-minute phone call to discuss how we might work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I’m a psychotherapist based in Norwich. I have worked face-to-face with clients for more than a decade, initially specialising in addictions. I completed my training in London, holding an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am a registered member of the BACP.
I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw on different approaches (person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT and more) depending on my clients' specific needs. Working relationally is what brings these styles together for me as a therapist, believing that a warm, empathic, and honest relationship is what allows for exploration, growth and healing to take place, especially if such relationships have been missing in our lives.
I work with clients around a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, loss, gender, sexuality, trauma, bereavement, abuse, and more.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
