COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

THERAPEUTIC COACHING AND SUPERVISION

About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor, based in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. I am dedicated to helping adults, adolescents and children with a wide range of mental health concerns.


I fully understand that for some people the thought of talking about the issues in their lives can be daunting. But trying to hide, bury or hold onto problems - often for many years - is usually much more painful and often leads to more debilitating stress, anxiety or depression.


My many years of experience and training has led me to an understanding of how physical and mental traumas, including those during our childhood and distant past, affect our ability as human beings to live our lives fully. They affect our confidence, our self esteem and our resiliance. And they affect those around us too.


That's why I have dedicated my working life to understanding these complex issues, and finding the most effective ways of helping people from all walks of life to recognise, discuss and defeat the problems that hinder them from enjoying life fully.

Personal approach

Although problems of the mind affect everyone of us at some time in our lives, each of us faces a unique set of circumstances and challenges. So the programme of therapy I offer you will be tailored very carefully to your unique personal needs.

Ethical and confidential

I work in a professional, ethical and non-judgemental manner at all times. As you would expect from a professional and highly trained counsellor, any personal information you share with me is treated with the strictest confidence.

Understanding

As well as my professional qualifications, every year I attend additional training in order to add to the armoury of knowledge and skills at my disposal. This ensures I can understand not just the issues in your life, but how best to tackle them with you.
