About me

Welcome,

I trained as a person-centred counsellor at University of East Anglia where I graduated with a M.A. in counselling. By working together in a non-judgemental, secure and supportive environment, at your pace, I believe that you will be able to work towards a better understanding of yourself and your current circumstances, bringing fresh perspectives and growth.

I provide a peaceful, confidential room set in a secluded garden where you can explore whatever comes up for you, without being judged or told what to do.

The first session is an opportunity for us to consider how we might work together. It is intended that this session will be for you to outline the reason you wish to access counselling and for me to outline my working practices. This initial session is charged at £10. If you decide you want to continue we will usually meet weekly thereafter.

Training, qualifications & experience

Experience

I work at a local counselling charity (non-profit) as a volunteer counsellor. I also have a small private practice near Norwich. I am a trustee for a local elderly people's sheltered housing scheme.

Prior to qualifying as a person-centred counsellor I spent many years in supportive and listening roles within: YMCA; a hostel for the homeless; probation service (drug offenders); housing associations (tenant support).

I have co-facilitated on a U.E.A. Certificate in Counselling course.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Therapies offered

Fees

The first session is charged at £10. Subsequent sessions will be 1 hour with fees ranging between £15 and £40. The fee is decided by the client based on my belief that they know best about their financial means and ability to pay an amount that reflects this. The exception is the late night sessions which will be charged at £40 per hour. Missed sessions will be charged the full agreed fee if cancelled less than 24 hours before the appointment time.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
