Holly McCrossen MBACP, BSc (Hons) Psych, Dip. Couns
Hello. My name is Holly, I am a qualified counsellor based in Norwich city centre. I have experience of working with people from a variety of backgrounds and strive to offer a non-judgemental inclusive space in which you will be accepted for the unique person you are.
As an Integrative therapist, I am able to draw on a wide range of theories and skills in order to tailor my approach to the individual needs and wishes of each person.
I aim to understand and empathise with the difficulties you are experiencing, and work with you to explore these in a safe and accepting environment. The therapeutic relationship is key to the way I work as a counsellor, and I will strive to be your companion through this part of your journey.
If you are considering having counselling, I invite you to contact me to discuss what it is you are looking for. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. I understand that it is an important decision to choose the right counsellor who is best suited to you.
If I am unable to take your call, please leave me a message and I will call you back as soon as I am able.

I have an academic background in Psychology (Bsc Hons) and a working background in the care sector working with children and adults with disabilities and autism. I have also worked with individuals and families affected by domestic violence and substance misuse.

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).
