If you are seeking support from an approachable and professional counsellor, please do contact me to find out more about how we may be able to work together to explore the issues you are experiencing. I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), based in South Norfolk.
I know that it can be difficult to reach out for help and my aim as a counsellor is to offer you a space that is confidential, welcoming and supportive so that you feel able to explore whatever is concerning you. My approach is respectful, empathic and non-judgmental and I value each and every client as an individual.
I offer face-to-face counselling in a peaceful and tranquil setting and I also offer online and telephone counselling.
I believe that talking forms an important part of our relationships but it can be rare to feel really listened to. Counselling provides a chance to be listened to and to be seen, understood and accepted for who you really are. In this way counselling can be transformative and can also provide a rich opportunity for self-exploration, discovery and growth.
If you think counselling may help you then please contact me by telephone, text or email. We can then arrange a confidential, no obligation chat to decide if you would like to arrange an initial appointment. Here we will explore what you are looking for from therapy and how we might best work towards this together. I will explain more about my practice and the way I work so that you can decide if you feel I am the right counsellor for you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
