About me

Counselling in Norwich and Norfolk

We all face adversity at some time in our life. Perhaps you are coping with depression or anxiety, experiencing a moment of acute difficulty or a particular problem which you can’t seem to resolve? I offer a confidential and non judging space, away from your normal environment where you can discover what is really going on for you. My aim is to create a safe space where you can be fully met and accepted however you are. It is remarkable how this experience alone can be so helpful, releasing our energy and sense of hope in meeting our problems. Through working together in the counselling, we can begin to see how old beliefs and patterns of responding to situations no longer work for us. We come to realise we are free to let them go and discover new more fruitful possibilities for our lives.

About Me

I know the value of psychotherapy from the inside, having over many years explored my own issues through individual as well as group therapy. This experience is at the centre of what I feel I offer in my work. It has deepened a conviction that we are whole beings, mind, body and spirit, and that to be met, and to meet ourselves compassionately in this way, is what heals. It has also taught me the significance of our early experience in how we respond to our life now. I believe we are all unique. Being integrative means I draw on a wide range of different approaches to help you make sense of your issues.

As a UKCP registered counsellor I adhere to their professional code of ethics, undertake continual professional development, and have regular supervision. Together with my formal training and experience, these structures provide a supportive framework for our work together.

It can feel hard to ask for help, and finding the right person for you is very important. Feeling able to trust your counsellor is fundamental for any counselling to work. Do feel free to ring me if you have any questions, or to see if you would like to book an initial session.

I work from a room in Central Norwich and from my home near Mattishall.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked and volunteered in many community and mental health settings, most recently as a volunteer counsellor for Norwich Mind, and currently for a Norwich based charity, St Barnabas Counselling Centre. I have a degree in Psychology (1981), and in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling  (2018). I am registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) reg no: 2011166085.
