About me

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and am therefore client-led ​.  I provide the time and space for you to off-load, discuss and explore your thoughts, feelings or situations.
I believe that we can work out problems and anxieties, no matter how ‘stuck’ we can feel, just through the simple act of being listened to without judgement.  Counselling is a relationship where we can work together to acknowledge the issues that you wish to understand and resolve.

For detailed information on the services I provide for Adults, Couples, Children, Young People and Full-Time Students (18yrs+), please click the link through to my website or email me.

I am registered with Norfolk SAFER which is a programme led by the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB).  Norfolk SAFER ensures that those working with children carry out their safeguarding responsibilities as required by the law.

I have worked with a range of issues with individuals and couples:

  • Bereavement
  • Carers
  • Disability and illness
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Family matters
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationships
  • Self-harm

Areas of counselling I work with:

  • Abortion
  • Affairs and betrayals
  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Cancer
  • Carer support
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
  • Chronic pain
  • Couples issues
  • Cross cultural relationships
  • Depression
  • Learning difficulties
  • Leaving care
  • Miscarriage
  • Sexuality
  • Stress
  • Terminal illness
  • Trauma
  • Work related stress

Further information

My areas of interest:

Working with those affected in some way by unseen disability is one of my areas of interest.  For example, I have worked with couples, parents and individuals in coming to understand new ways of adjusting to and understanding disability.

In some circumstances I am also able to offer home visits, telephone or skype counselling, or a mixture of these.  However, I do prefer that clients visit my room as this offers a completely mutual, unattached, quiet space in which to explore deep and personal experiencing away from daily norms and routines.

For those interested in home visits or other types of counselling I will assess the viability of this service for the client, and for myself, as there are many factors to take into consideration.
