Counselling, Supervision and Therapeutic Writing

in Long Stratton, Norwich and Norfolk


Home. Fungi

My name is Jacqui Empson-High, I am a Person-Centred counsellor and supervisor in Long Stratton and Norwich, Norfolk, based mid-way between Norwich and Diss on the A140 and an online counsellor in Norwich. I am also poet with an interest in using writing to improve wellbeing.

I specialise in bereavement and losses of all kinds.



Coronavirus:
As guidelines relating to Covid-19 change so frequently I will continue to offer only video or telephone counselling/supervision sessions for the time being. Hands. Face. Space.


On my website you can find out more about how I work as an online counsellor in Norwich, a supervisor in Norfolk and writing for wellbeing therapist and how I may be able to help you with counselling in Long Stratton. Please have a look round and give me a call or email me for a no obligation discussion if you have any questions or would like more information.

I can help you find a way through what is worrying you by giving you time and space to talk about your problems confidentially. I offer counselling in Long Stratton and I am an online counsellor in Norwich. I can offer you time to consider your problems and anxieties to find ways to understand them and find ways to deal with them suitable for your individual situation. I use a conservatory in my home in the quiet setting of Long Stratton, only moments from the centre of the village, bus stops and the A140. I use the same space to ensure privacy as an online counsellor in Norwich. As a supervisor I can offer supervision in Norfolk and UK wide.

Life can be full of ups and downs, losses and gains, stresses and anxieties 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 troubles and physical health problems. As an experienced therapist offering counselling in Long Stratton, Norwich we can provide you with counselling sessions individually tailored to your needs, in an easily accessible location from Norwich, Diss or Wymondham. If you are unable to or do not wish to travel I can offer online videoconferencing or telephone sessions on a regular basis and not just during the Covid-19 restrictions. This can save you time travelling and reduce the cost of fuel and car or public transport use.

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. Sometimes it can be hard to talk about this to the family or your friends because you do not wish to worry them. This is where counselling might help you. As an online counsellor in Norwich I can offer you video or telephone sessions on a ongoing basis if you feel too ill to travel during your treatment and after. I can support you during difficult times with online sessions if you receive a life limiting diagnosis or are nearing the end of your life. We have found that this opens up new avenues of support at a time when it may be desperately needed. When being physically able to travel to and from sessions, with the therapy time included, becomes too tiring.

I can offer counselling, supervision and writing therapy in Long Stratton, Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk for adults over 18 years of age or online countrywide.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and supervisor offering sessions from my home in Long Stratton, Norwich and Norfolk (when permitted by Covid-19 restrictions) and I also offer online video conferencing and telephone sessions. I suggest, for confidentiality and security, online video sessions are held on Zoom. VSee or doxy.me, .

    from Macbeth by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)


    Offering counselling in Long Stratton, Norwich and Diss, we have a deep interest in creative ways of working, for example, using writing, music, photos and objects, because talking may be too hard to describe some of the the events in your life. This can also be carried out online. As an online counsellor in Norwich I am open helping your explore your issues in any creative ways you wish to try. We can offer creative supervision in Norfolk or countrywide via secure video link and research shows this can be beneficial.

    We also offer therapeutic writing of various types in Norfolk or further afield click here for more information. Therapeutic writing is different to general creative writing as it does not critique writing styles or content or refine work for publication. We also offer supervision in Norfolk or countrywide to writers or therapists using creative writing for therapeutic purposes with groups or individuals. We can also accommodate students studying in this area of specialisation again with individuals or groups.

    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 in Long Stratton quiet but near the centre of the village and is accessible from Norwich and Diss on the A140.
