About me

Welcome,

Life can be so difficult and overwhelming, often feeling alone, misunderstood, vulnerable, and not being able to cope. Then heaping blame onto ourselves for that feeling, I am here to help. The following are just a fraction of the questions and mental health issues I work through with my clients.

  • Why and how is depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and lack of self-worth controlling my life and making me react in ways I don't understand that seem out of my control?
  • Why do I react the way I do and make the decisions I do only to regret it later?
  • Why do we choose our relationships and friendships only to find we have repeated bad past experiences?
  • Is there a possibility that I can change where I am in my life, and learn how to gain clarity, peace, and calm?

Everyone is unique and in a safe non-judgemental, warm environment we can begin to understand the whys together.

I work in an integrative way, meaning I pull from different theories to help us understand our own unique self, putting our relationship and your privacy at the very pinnacle of our work. I also work with the Sue Lambert Trust in Norwich and have a compassionate understanding of trauma and abuse from past and present

I work from a very private office with plenty of free parking outside, or just a short 10-minute walk from Cromer town center and the train station. I also have an office in Norwich town center
