About me

I am Supportive and empathic counsellor qualified in Person Centred practice. Working with trauma, Depression, overcoming anxious thinking, self-empowerment and emotional healing.

I can offer you counselling in Central Norwich or Great Yarmouth. I am a  member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

I work with individuals and couples of all ages within a safe, secure, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Allowing my clients to explore and develop naturally with a person-centred focus.

My ethos is everyone has their own inner wisdom, a capacity to self-empower.

I hope counselling will support you to develop greater self- understanding and self- awareness. This can enhance your well-being and personal freedom

Working with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Feeling sad
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Overcoming anxious thinking
  • Relationship issues
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Feelings of shame and remorse
  • Emotional abuse

  • Couples counselling
  • Self-harm
  • Trauma
  • Work related stress
  • Postnatal depression
  • Separation and divorce
  • Child related issues

Previously becoming a counsellor was not my intended career, my original back ground being in the TV and Fashion industry. Unbeknown to me during this stage of my life I was experiencing an environment that was to become detrimental to my mental health. My concern with being judged and not meeting others’ expectations left me feeling extremely isolated. I was too ashamed to admit my emotional suffering and I kept this inside, slowly becoming increasingly depressed. I believe that negative school experiences which include Dyslexia had fuelled my negative thinking and depression, leading me to lose my self and way for some time. And yet later I found an environment safe enough to break my silence.

In time I became frustrated with the lack of understanding and care that is available to people who are suffering and decided that I wanted to help. I wanted to make a difference to others who were suffering emotionally.  I decided to develop communications skills to support me assist people with emotional and complex needs.

Becoming a counsellor has opened me up to deep and wonderful values. I understand now that feelings do not need to be avoided or feared, they are part of who we are and that they have a huge impact on how we see our self’s, our life and others.

I feel it is not only my life experience that drives me in helping others but a sense of my humanity and compassion. I believe everyone is creative and can grow given the right circumstances, everyone can find their way.
