I grew up in the Netherlands and New Zealand, and also lived in France for two years before settling in England.
My professional background is in Nursing and I came to counselling when I realised that the part I loved best was to sit with people and accompany them on their emotional and psychological journeys.
I am trained and committed to listening to you in a special way that doesn’t judge you, nor tell you what to do. I offer you a caring, compassionate and confidential relationship where you can openly and freely explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions as much or as little as you wish to. This can help you to make sense of your experiences, accept your feelings, gain a new perspective or help you find ways of coping with the difficulties that you might be facing. It can also lead to greater self-trust, confidence and self-esteem, and will enable you to develop your own inner resources. The objective is for you to become able to see yourself as a person with the power and freedom to change; to become your own expert.
I have many years of experience, where I have helped and supported people to live more fulfilling and satisfying lives. I enjoy working with adults of all ages and backgrounds and I believe that counselling can be helpful at whatever stage or place in life you find yourself.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Master in Counselling degree from the University of East Anglia (UEA), which I gained following successful completion of the Post-Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, also from the UEA.
These trainings are accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am a Registered and Accredited Member.
I have taught on the Post-Graduate Certificate in Counselling course at the UEA, as well as the Introduction to Counselling Skills courses and the Certificate in Counselling Skills courses at the Norwich Centre.
I am a Personal Development (PD) facilitator on the Diploma in Counselling course, also at the Norwich Centre.
I have private practices near Diss in south Norfolk, and in Norwich.
My south Norfolk practice is conveniently situated just one mile off the A140, half way between Diss and Long Stratton. The practice is within a Tudor, thatched, house which is surrounded by its own garden. Also, there is plenty of space to park your car.
My Norwich practice is located within The Norwich Wellbeing Centre, NR2 1SF.

The Person-Centred counselling approach was devised by and based on the theory and philosophy of Dr. Carl Rogers. It is a non-directive approach based on the assumption that a client seeking help in the resolution on the problem they are experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express themselves without being directed by the counsellor.
This will enable the client to develop inner resources; the objective is for the client to become able to see him/herself as a person with the power and freedom to change.
