I offer  in person individual counselling to adults (over 18 years of age).

  • I am an integrative counsellor which means that I am trained in a variety of approaches (Person Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT.) 
  • I aim to develop a safe, supportive, therapeutic relationship with you.  I am very friendly and down to earth. 
  • I have helped clients with a wide range of issues through both long and short term counselling.
  • I have a particular interest in working with anxiety, childhood trauma and identity. 
  • I work with clients from all walks of life and I work extensively within the LGBT + community.  
  • I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental space  for you to talk freely about and work on whatever is troubling you. 
  • I work from my welcoming, accessible office in Norwich and also on Zoom.
