About me

Are you fed up with waking up every morning with the feeling of dread, a churning in your stomach or a tightness in your chest?
Are you frustrated with having thoughts going around in your mind, feeling that you're not in control?
Are you finding yourself feeling sad and crying more than usual?
Do you feel confused and often find yourself asking "what's wrong with me?"

You might be experiencing anxiety when you are faced with challenging situations and people, including social anxiety, which has worsened since the pandemic. Or perhaps you are feeling sad or depressed. It can sometimes feel overwhelming when you are having to deal with all of these emotions on your own, which is where counselling can be useful. 

I am a qualified person-centred therapeutic counsellor, who will work to support you to figure things out and to make sense of what you are experiencing and how you are feeling.  

I have a special interest and experience of working with people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, workplace stress and trauma.  One of the most important elements of counselling is the professional therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. I offer a confidential space where we can work collaboratively and you will be listened to and not be judged.

In-person appointments are available in  North Norfolk - Sheringham, North Walsham and Norwich.
Online appointments are available for anyone in the UK via Zoom.

If you would like to have a chat with me about what you are wanting from counselling and how we might work together, please do give me a call or send me a message and we can arrange a time that works for us both. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have professional supervisors, who support my practice as a counsellor. I am fully insured, adhere to a professional ethical framework and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

I have a counselling practice in Sheringham, North Walsham and Norwich where you can visit in-person, by appointment.

Each practice is set up to provide you with a safe and comfortable space to take some time out for yourself, to look after your well-being and to figure out what's going on for you.

I also offer online counselling using Zoom if you are unable to get to me or you would simply prefer to be in the comfort of your own home. It is important that during counselling sessions you have a private space where you are able to speak freely.  

Sadly, stigma still exists about counselling/psychotherapy/talking therapy - Simply put, there may be times in your life when you feel that you need some extra support and a space to unload and unburden yourself.  That's where a professional counsellor comes in - supporting you through tough times. 

There is also deeper work we can do together if you choose, working with historical trauma in a gentle way through talking, exploring and connecting with the here and now. 

There is no time like the present - If you feel like you are struggling to make sense of what's going on in your mind or in your life, then please get in touch.
