I have been counselling adults since 2006 and since Nov 2013, I have also been employed as a youth counsellor working with 11-18yr olds, within a local charity as part of the CAMHS provision for Norfolk. I am also a Dementia Counsellor for a national mental health charity.
My private practice is located in a purpose built log cabin at my home in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft, where I offer integrative counselling and Hypnotherapy to adults and adolescents. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues such as; rape & abuse, self harm, addictions, depression, stress, relationship issues, panic attacks, phobias and many other debilitating issues. There is a regular local bus service which stops nearby and ample parking for clients who drive. As an integrative counsellor, I am able to utilise interventions from many different schools of counselling, to best meet the individual needs of each unique client.
I do not believe that one style suits all. Whatever issues or problems you wish to overcome, you can be assured of a confidential, non-judgemental, specifically tailored counselling approach and a warm welcome. I always endeavour to hold a few appointments for anyone who may need subsidised rates.

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.
