About me

In light of Covid 19, therapy sessions will be held via Skype, Facetime, Zoom, WhatsApp, or telephone, as opposed to face to face appointments.

I understand that the idea of counselling can be daunting, but I will do my best to help you through whatever it is that you're experiencing. Whether it's anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss of confidence, or any other issue - we can talk through it and find a way forward.

At Emotionalskills, I help our diverse range of clients tackle various concerns, such as:

  • Anxiety + Panic Disorders
  • Depression + Low Mood / Feeling Sad
  • Relationship + Couples Issues
  • Anger + Frustration
  • Family + Teenage Issues
  • Dissatisfaction + Unhappiness
  • Phobias

I have studied focusing, CBT, mindfulness, couples facilitation, coaching and creative thinking. Emotionalskills is a straightforward therapeutic skills course designed specifically to help each unique client work through their problems.

I am member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

I work with:

  • Adults
  • Young people (15 plus)
  • Older people who thought they were too old to change
  • Couples who want to stop arguing
  • Struggling family units
  • People who want to realise a fulfilling life

Please feel free to text / call (07986488690), email, or perhaps visit the website, www.emotionalskills.uk. Sessions are held in Norwich and take place in a private and relaxed environment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
