I am still taking on clients during the Covid 19 situation. I can offer Telephone, Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams as an alternative to seeing you in person
I trained as an Integrative counsellor in 2000 and since then have worked in charitable organisations delivering counselling to children, young people and adults. As an integrative counsellor I am able to tailor my counselling to suit you. Often the most important thing is to be able to tell your story, have someone really listen, understand you and help you make sense of what has happened.
Initially I will meet you for a 30 minute consultation to see if we can work together.
I work in North Walsham but home visits may be possible if you have mobility difficulties or are unable to come to me.
Appointments are offered evenings, Tuesday and Thursday daytime also and Saturdays

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.

If your child has an EHCP with emotional needs then your local authority may be able to offer funding to pay for counselling.
