Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor BSc UKCP, MBACP

About me


I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Norwich. Currently I am working with both face to face appointments and remote working. The main areas I work with are; anxiety, depression, pregnancy and baby loss, pregnancy choices, trauma in all forms and relationship difficulties and struggles. My goal as a counsellor is to instil hope for my clients future and their circumstances, to facilitate healing and offer a safe space for exploration and sharing of life’s difficulties. I offer a non-judgemental space and my focus is on my client and their needs. It can sometimes feel quite overwhelming and scary to reach out for support. My aim is to walk with you at your pace, hear you, listen, be with you. 


My process when beginning our work together is,  once contact has been made to me via my email contact address, i will make contact with you, usually by phone, which is a free service. Then we can have an understanding of how i can support you and your needs and organise our sessions together.  

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc qualified as a Psychotherapeutic Integrative Counsellor.

I have worked with a variety of counselling needs and requirements. These include, anxiety and depression symptoms, relationship difficulties, trauma symptoms, and abuse in all forms. Currently, I still work for a pregnancy loss charity alongside my private practice where i work with pregnancy and baby loss, and pregnancy choices. I have gained a variety of experience working with different age groups, experiences and challenges, and my focus is to offer support and safety, with no judgement with every session, and every client to facilitate healing and change. 

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
