Hello, I am an empathetic and committed Integrative child and adolescent counsellor.
I am passionate about enabling young people to tell their stories, make sense of their inner worlds and develop the capacity for deeply fulfilling relationships.
I call upon a wide range of theoretical concepts and styles of working, recognising each child as an individual and using the childs natural form of expression, creativity and play to explore their feelings.
I offer a calm, open and welcoming space in my studios in Thetford, Newmarket and Norwich.
Here, I can work with your young person creatively using drawing, painting, clay, sand-tray, storytelling, puppets, music or drama to develop a trusting working relationship in which their own narratives can unfold.
I work with patience, kindness and openness at all times.
Safety, confidentiality and trust are of upmost importance and I ensure I adhere to all BACP ethical guidelines.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Child Counselling - Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education,
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I initially like to meet parents (carers) to obtain an overview of you and your young persons story.
Here you can discuss your reasons for seeking therapeutic support.
This initial session is free of charge and you will be able to ask me any questions relating to my practice and way of working.
I offer both short and long term work and each session is 50 minutes long.
