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.
