I am a trained and experienced therapeutic counsellor, offering individual counselling to adults and young people, short- or long-term. I am based on the south side of Norwich, with the possibility of working from therapy rooms in Norwich or Bungay. I also offer therapy/counselling outdoors, if this is something you would like to try.
A resume of my background and qualifications are below. I have helped clients of all ages (14 and upwards) with a wide variety of issues, since qualifying in 2015, working both short- and long-term. My approach is at heart person-centred, but I will adapt to your needs, using aspects of other approaches where it is helpful.
I strongly believe in the likely therapeutic benefit of working outdoors, and I offer this alternative if it appeals to you. If you are interested, we can discuss this at the start, or else consider it later on, as you wish. I can also offer nature therapy or nature reconnection work if this is what you want. Please see the Green Therapy page on my website.
