Counselling and Therapeutic Writing in Wymondham and Norwich
Welcome to my website, my name is Jacqui Empson-High and I am a Person-Centred counsellor, practising in Norwich and Wymondham, and a poet.
I offer counselling and writing therapy in Wymondham, Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk.
I work with individual adults over 18, families and groups providing short or long-term therapy for all general counselling issues and whatever you need to talk about.
From September 2016 I am able to offer counselling sessions via a secure and confidential video link for those who are unable to travel, live outside of Norfolk or want to work with me on specific issues. Please contact me if you would like to know more or click here for more details and scroll down to near the bottom of that page.
I am a fully qualified counsellor based in Wymondham, Norfolk. I practice from my home and from rooms in central Norwich. I can also offer home visits in Wymondham and the local surrounding areas and writing therapy around Norfolk.
Life is full of ups and downs, losses and gains and often there is no opportunity to take a breath, stop and give yourself time to work them out. Sometimes they get too much to cope with leading to emotional difficulties, mental health and physical health problems. There may be times when your physical health becomes a major issue and you are suddenly faced with your own vulnerabilities and mortality, with no-one able to be beside you during this time.
As a counsellor in Norwich and Wymondham I can offer you the time to talk about what worries you, or what feels too much to deal with alone. I can provide you with a confidential, understanding and non-judgemental time and space dedicated to your concerns.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their Ethical Framework. I am on the BACP 'Find a Therapist' directory, click here to check out the BACP website

In addition to working with all general counselling issues I have a special interest and experience in helping clients facing difficulties with:
This list is not exhaustive, please contact me if you wonder if I have experience with your issues or have any questions.
As a counsellor in Norwich and Wymondham I have a deep interest in creative ways of working because words are sometimes inadequate to describe the events in your life, so in addition to the talking therapy of counselling I can also offer creative therapy ways of expressing your worries, including writing as therapy, art, movement and music if you wish or would like to try something different.
I also offer therapeutic writing of various types in Norfolk click here for more information. Therapeutic writing is different to general creative writing which usually includes offering critiques of writing style and refining work for publication.
