We are relational beings with an innate need for connection. In counselling I provide a space where you can explore and connect with yourself at a depth not often accessible in our everyday lives. Where there is the freedom to ask the questions that will bring understanding and the safety to work with the things that are making you unhappy and holding you back.
I trained as a Person-Centred therapist – an approach which emphasises our inner resources and readiness to embody our true selves when we are genuinely heard, seen, and accepted. Through this experience counselling offers a healing and empowering opportunity to reveal and work with the hidden, outdated, and unhelpful concepts we have of ourselves.
These concepts lie at the heart of many mental health diagnoses, addictions, and emotional, psychological, and relational difficulties we experience. They trap us in thoughts and behaviours that frustrate us and cause us pain. In counselling we safely and creatively explore this area of self – helping you to understand and move beyond old patterns and towards healing and growth.
I graduated with a master’s degree in counselling from the University of East Anglia in 2013. Working predominantly with adults in my private practice I also have experience as a counsellor for adolescents and younger adults. I work with staff and pupils in a local high school and as a mentor for undergraduate and post-graduate students requiring mental health support at the University of East Anglia and Norwich University of the Arts.
A member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by its code of practice and ethics and hold an enhanced DBS check.
I charge £50 and sessions last an hour. I work face-to-face and remotely.
