On my website you can find out more about how I work as a counsellor, supervisor and writing for wellbeing therapist and how I may be able to help you. Please have a look round and give me a call or email me if you want to ask any questions.

I can help adults over 18 years old find a way through what is worrying them by enabling them to talk about their problems confidentially. As a counsellor in Norwich and Wymondham I can offer you time talk about your worries and fears. I use a room in my home in the quiet rural setting of Tharston, near to Long Stratton and Wymondham or in the centre of Norwich.

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 counsellor in Norwich and Wymondham, I can offer counselling individually tailored to your needs and wishes in a countryside setting near to the town of Wymondham and village of Long Stratton or centrally in Norwich.

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. Perhaps when faced with a life-limiting or life-changing diagnosis or event. Sometimes it can be hard to talk about this to the family or your friends because you do not wish to worry them.

I can offer counselling, supervision and writing therapy in Tharston near Wymondham, Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk and I work with adults over 18. I can help you with problems and anxieties you may have by giving you a confidential, understanding and non-judgemental space and a dedicated time to you.

    As a counsellor in Norwich and Tharston, near Wymondham, I 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 the events in your life. As a supervisor in Norfolk I also offer creative ways of working as this can be beneficial in supervision. I can offer creative supervision in Norfolk or countrywide via secure video link.

    I also offer therapeutic writing of various types in Norfolk or further afield click here for more information. Groups can be arranged at mutually convenient times. Therapeutic writing is different to general creative writing as it does not critique writing styles or content or refine work for publication. I also offer supervision to writers or therapists using creative writing for therapeutic purposes with groups or individuals. I 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 a peaceful rural setting and is within easy reach of Norwich, Long Stratton and the A140 and Diss. It is just 8 miles from Wymondham town centre and the train station. There is ample free parking at my home on the drive. 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.

    I would be happy to hear from you by phone, text or email and will respond to arrange a time when we can talk by phone to give you a chance to talk to me to see if you feel comfortable with that. If you do we will make an appointment for an initial exploratory session at a mutually convenient time and place.
