About me

I have had counselling myself and I know how important it is to feel at ease when talking about the things that concern us. So, whether coming individually or as a couple I will try and make that first step towards getting help as easy as possible, offering a confidential service that is relaxed and non-judgemental.

As an integrative counsellor, with over 10 years experience, I work with different therapeutic approaches, and working with you, will help you to find your own way through the issues that are causing pain or concern.

Bring what ever concerns you have, whether they be about relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and change, bereavement, indeed any issues you wish to discuss.

Five minutes from either Reepham or the the A1067 Fakenham Road, and just 20 minutes from Norwich I practice from a comfortable room that is quiet and private in a peaceful setting.

Feel free to call me on my land line or mobile numbers, or send me and email. If I am unable to answer straight away I will get back to you as soon as I am able to.

There is a large parking area also available.
