I am a BSc qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor; I work relationally whilst using different therapeutic approaches depending on your needs. I offer acceptance, empathy, understanding and genuineness without offering advice or opinions for a better understanding of self to help you accept and live with your past and not be governed by it in your present.
I have four years of counselling experience working at Cruse Bereavement Care, Mind and Off The Record and have recently decided to work for myself offering both face to face meetings at The Practice Rooms in Norwich, Walking and Talking around the area of Sparham and over Zoom in the comfort of your own home. Sparham is 1 mile from Bawdeswell, 2 miles from Lenwade, 3 miles from Reepham, 7 miles from Dereham and exactly halfway between Norwich and Fakenham on the A1067.
You can contact me via email or telephone; if I am unavailable, please leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I can. Please note, I do not always check my messages at the weekend. We will initially have a 20 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs and expectations and how we can work together. If we are happy to proceed, we will arrange our first session either at The Practice Rooms, via Zoom or on a Walk and Talk (please note: before Walk and Talk sessions can proceed, we initially meet via Zoom or at The Practice Rooms). Sessions are usually weekly to develop the relationship but can become fortnightly.

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.
