Leigh Taylor Prof.Dip Psy C.
You will be offered a warm welcome and a safe, non-judgemental space where confidentiality is assured. Here you can explore thoughts, feelings and emotions and make a little more sense of your world.
I believe that everyone has the ability to solve their own issues working together with someone who is not emotionally involved in the situation who can bring clarity and understanding to the counselling session.
Life is never straight forward with many feeling as if they are the odd one out in a perfect world. By talking, a different reality is most likely to emerge.
Sessions are conducted in a thoughtful, open space where you may be able to a clearer picture of where you are and more importantly where you want to go.
Therapy is a working relationship between myself as the therapist and the client. I meet clients at my home practice and very often the first session can feel a little daunting as the fear of the unknown can be overwhelming at times. However this is the first important step in looking at the issues you are seeking support with. The number of sessions is dependent on the issues that you wish to discuss and my work is client-led, should therapy not be right with me, it is important to find a counsellor who you feel connected to.
By the end of our work you will have strategies, tools and techniques in place to support you long term, very often the option to talk to someone not connected to your situation personally or emotionally can bring huge rewards in its own right.

I am the founder of a Domestic Abuse charity and have worked in the field for over 6 years. Within this environment, I have witnessed many stories of abuse be it financial, emotional, physical and psychological.
This experience has enabled me to bring a wealth of experience to the counselling room.
I also am passionate around my work in building self-esteem and confidence by reducing the anxiety that stops us from achieving small goals that can lead to the bigger goals in life.
Small steps are the way forward and with encouragement and understanding they can be achieved.
I have the option to see clients in either Watton or my home practice. Parking is available at both sites. My home practice is on the ground floor but will require a car. My Watton practice is on a bus route from Norwich, Dereham and Thetford.
