I am currently able to offer clients Face to Face, Telephone and Zoom sessions.
I am a experienced Adult, Couple, Youth Counsellor and Supervisor; an Accredited Member of the BACP and UKRCP registered.
I have a successful private practice in North Norfolk and can work effectively with Adults, Couples and Young People on varying issues, as presented. I also supervise Counsellors and people from associated helping professions.
I am an Associate Counsellor with several Employee Assisted Programme Agencies; working with clients from all areas of industry, including staff within the Crown Prosecution, HMP Prison Service, banking and insurance companies.
I also work for Eating Matters in Norwich, counselling clients with eating related issues.
I previously counselled in a variety of settings, including Connexions and schools within Suffolk County Council. I also established a Coaching Project within Broadland District Council, which is still very successful.
My past experience includes working with several generic agencies within the Norfolk area, including a Substance Misuse Agency in Norwich and a Suffolk College (counselling both staff employees and students).
I have extensive experience in working with numerous complex issues, including abuse, multifaceted traumas, bereavement, depression, relationships, confidence/self esteem issues, work related problems and substance misuse.
I offer both short and long term therapy and am willing to be alongside my clients in a caring, empathic, sensitive and genuine way.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
