About me

Hi, I am a Person-centred counsellor. My aim is to facilitate your well-being and personal growth, by providing a safe, warm and non-judgmental environment in which you can make sense of your experiences and explore your thoughts and feelings. My collaborative approach means that I will work with you, to build a genuine, trusting relationship, giving you the space and time to explore your thoughts and feelings. My approach focuses on the therapeutic relationship, recognising that each person is unique in their experiencing. I work from my practice based in Oulton broad and at As One Counselling and holistic healing centre in Norwich. 

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA (Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling
  • BTEC Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling

I have experience working within a GP surgery, counselling patients with various issues, including but not limited to; anxiety, depression, bereavement, stress, low self-esteem, neurodiversity and relationship issues. I also have experience volunteering for a charity, offering long term counselling for clients who have experienced sexual abuse, sexual assault or violence. I also offer Mindfulness and meditation coaching as part of my practice. 

Member organisations

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
