About me

I am a qualified Family and Systemic Psychotherapist offering a confidential therapeutic service to individuals, couples and families in East Anglia.

I have worked with individuals and families in the UK and the United States, helping them find solutions that
work for them uniquely, in a practical and down to earth way – it’s more than just talking!

I also provide individual and group clinical supervision, and training on working with families, adolescent development and addiction, both in the UK and the US.

I have also raised my three children as a single working mum, whilst gaining my professional qualifications.  I have worked in mental health since 1994, with adults, families, couples, and young people, including those in prison, those with addiction, and those dealing with domestic violence, relationship problems, grief and loss, and neuro-developmental disorders.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My usual office is upstairs, but I have access to a ground floor room with prior notice.
