Counselling and Therapeutic Writing in Wymondham and Norwich

My name is Jacqui Empson-High and I am a Person-Centred counsellor, practising in Norwich and Wymondham, and a poet.

Welcome to my website, please do have a look around and contact me if you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them.

I offer counselling and writing therapy in Wymondham, Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk.

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 or click here to be taken to FAQ 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 counsellor with a special interest and experience of working with clients who are dying, along with their families and I can offer counselling in your home as part of a new venture called The Butterfly Tree.

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 my entry

    "Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak whispers the o'er fraught heart, and bids it break" - Macbeth, William Shakespeare

    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.

    Please explore my website and the links for sources of help and to find out more about counselling, writing as therapy and how I work and how I may be able to help you. I am very happy to hear from you by phone, text or email and will respond to arrange a time we can talk by phone to give you a chance to talk to me to see if you feel comfortable and if you do we will make an appointment for an exploratory session at a mutually convenient time and place.

    I have a blog page that I post thoughts, poems and articles that might be of interest or supportive click here for a link directly to the page.

    My home practice is within easy reach of Wymondham town centre, the train station & a bus stop, there is parking nearby. As a counsellor in Norwich I practice from rooms in The Natural Therapy Clinic, Norwich as they are city centre based, near to multi-storey and surface car parks, with bus stops nearby.

    Please contact me by phone or email for up to date availability for counselling sessions as these change frequently. Please note I have no sessions currently available on Mondays or Tuesdays.

    Writing therapy groups in Norfolk can be arranged at mutually convenient times.
