About me

Do you sometimes find yourself struggling to manage your feelings or maybe your thoughts? It could be that you feel stressed or anxious, or perhaps you're not sure the reason why. Pluralistic psychotherapy could be the path to truly understanding who you are, and how to lead a happier life. Together, we'll explore various techniques, selecting the ones that best align with your individual needs and the complexity of your experiences. Honouring and respecting your individuality, this all-round approach can facilitate profound and lasting changes so you can resolve stumbling blocks, gain insights, and truly find yourself.

Tailored to You: Therapy tailored to your uniqueness is vital because a one-size-fits-all solution simply doesn’t exist. Embracing the power of pluralism, I leverage diverse modalities to deeply understand your past experiences, true identity, and aspirations. Together, we explore various techniques, selecting the ones that best align with your specific needs and complexity of your experiences. Honouring and respecting your individuality, this integrative approach can facilitate profound and lasting changes.

Embracing Pluralism: We'll explore various techniques together to find what works best for you, drawing from a range of therapeutic methods, working with what may work best for you as an individual and at that time. You'll have a safe space for you to express yourself and where you can feel safe, heard and understood. 

Your Active Role: What makes this pluralistic approach truly beautiful is your active involvement in shaping your therapy journey; not by expecting huge efforts from you, but in my understanding of your true self and how we can best provide therapy for you. Through our collaborative efforts, you'll have a space where profound and long-lasting changes can occur, empowering you to live a more fulfilling life that aligns with your true desires and aspirations. 

If you’re seeking a friendly and empathetic therapist who values your uniqueness and believes in the power of tailored therapy, do get in touch. I would be honoured to accompany you on this transformative path.

I look forward to working with you,

Jack Norwood PROF. DIP PSY C. MNCPS. (Accred.)

Training, qualifications & experience

My background:

I've had a keen interest in anxiety and trauma all of my life. With my grandfather, a WW2 veteran and who suffered from PTSD, I've also had many friends and close family suffer from anxiety, fear and the compounded psychological effects this brings. This experience over the years in observing the struggles of others trying to manage their problem has given me many insights into how anxiety can develop and manifest into more complex issues.

My experience:

I've worked as a private therapist at organisations specialising in anxiety and depression, as well as at a dedicated cancer centre. This has equipped me with the expertise in addressing a wide range of challenges, not only generalised stress, anxiety, the management of chronic illness, and grief and loss but working with these clients to further help them discover purpose, meaning, and their authentic desires in life. Much of the work includes relationship difficulties, identity exploration, self-discovery and life purpose, including helping young men from challenging family backgrounds, those navigating marital and relationship issues, and individuals with low self-esteem, helping them find a positive identity and the confidence to communicate effectively.

How I work:

I keep a very personable approach built on empathy and trust, working closely with my clients so you can feel safe, heard and understood. Working with a pluralistic approach means that I tailor my practice to you, the individual. Rather than choosing one approach or style, I believe the best results in therapy should acknowledge various approaches at any one time, recognising that you may require different methods of understanding and different approaches to therapy depending on you as an individual and your needs at that time. 

"Effective therapy involves meeting the individual where they are, understanding their unique perspective, and guiding them towards growth and healing." - Carl Rogers
