About me

Do you need to talk in a safe, caring, counselling environment, where you won't be judged and where you can find the answers that you know are within you? If the answer is yes, then let's work together to create the change you need.

I am an Integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist working with adults, couples, youths and
children.

I have a flexible approach and can provide focused short-term or long-term Counselling depending on the individual need of the adult/child, I am also a registered Adoption Counsellor and have been receiving referrals from Barnardo's (Link) since 2005 working both with adults and children.

I have been working as a Children's/Youth Counsellor since 2005 and I have experience in working as a School Counsellor, Counselling looked after children in residential care and also in private practice.

I am experienced in working with children and young people in areas such as:

  • loss (including divorce, separation and displacement) and bereavement
  • family conflict (including domestic violence and abuse)
  • anxieties and phobias
  • low sense of self esteem and confidence
  • issues connected to school such as transition
  • pressure of exams
  • friendship and peer problems.

I have been using Counselling skills since 1996 and graduated at Chelmsford University in 2003, and I have private clinics in Norwich, Gt. Yarmouth, Gorleston, and Lowestoft.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
