My Approach

I bring my passion for care and mental wellbeing into my practice. Working holistically with my clients, I offer an integrative approach, tailoring the counselling to my clients individual needs and personal circumstances with no expectations for the client to fit a prescribed counselling mould.

I draw upon person-centred, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioural approaches within my practice.

I enjoy working creatively with my clients to find ways of expressing things that may be beyond words. These may be experiences that occurred in your childhood before you learned to speak; it may be that you have endured traumatic experiences that need a creative approach as words are too difficult for you; or you may just enjoy the experience of a more creative session.

I have had further training in other approaches, including inner child/parts of self, Gestalt, dream analysis, and intergenerational trauma.

Using all of the above, I offer a bespoke counselling service that is created with your individual needs in mind and with you at the heart of it. Together, we create a unique therapeutic relationship—a safe and positive space for us to work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

About Me

I provide a private and confidential counselling service to adults in central Norwich, Norfolk, or online within the UK.

I provide the space to explore difficult events or impactful moments in your life, whether in the past, present, or in preparation for the future.

I will help you explore your experiences without judgement to achieve a better understanding of the difficulties that you are facing.

I have experience working with neurodiverse clients, including those with autism and other conditions that may present sensory challenges. I would adjust the environment as much as possible to make your session accessible. I enjoy working creatively, and we would be able to collaborate on how we may approach areas that you find difficult to verbalise. I am happy to discuss this with you and answer any questions you may have.

I am LGBTQIA-friendly and can help you explore and process any concerns or fears you may have.

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I have a history of working in adult health and social care, and have supported the elderly, and their families, through their age related issues, whether that is losing independence, health, grief, mobility changes or loneliness.
I have completed an extensive course especially designed to enable me to practice ethically online. I am passionate that counselling should be available to all, and by offering online sessions I am able to cater to the needs of those who are unable to have counselling in person.
I work in a trauma informed way, aware of the safety needs when working with trauma and have completed extra training in intergenerational trauma and shame to support my work.
