    As an experienced therapist offering counselling in Long Stratton, and as an online counsellor in Norwich I can provide you with counselling sessions individually tailored to your needs, in an easily accessible location from Norwich, Diss, Wymondham or the surrounding towns and villages. I am only moments from the centre of the village, bus stops and the A140. There is free parking at my home on the drive or on the street. I use the conservatory in my home for counselling face-to-face and as an online counsellor in Norwich, which overlooks the garden.

    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. We are able to meet 'virtually' if you live elsewhere in the UK or even locally if you do not wish to travel for sessions.

    There may be times when your physical health becomes a major issue and you are suddenly faced with your own vulnerabilities and mortality and it can be hard to talk about this to the family or your friends. 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 required. 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. Together we can find a way through to a more peaceful pathway for you.

    I can help you find a way through what is worrying you by giving you the time and space to talk about your problems confidentially, to enable you to find ways of understanding and ways to deal with them. These worries can get too much to cope with at times, leading to emotional difficulties, mental health troubles and physical health problems.

    I also 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. As a supervisor I can offer supervision in Norfolk and UK wide for qualified and trainee therapists.

    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.

    Please contact me for my up to date availability for counselling sessions as this changes frequently.

    “My grief lies all within; and these external manner of laments are merely shadows of the unseen grief that swells with silence in the tortur'd soul.” from Richard II ― William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)


    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 some of the the events in your life. Offering counselling in Long Stratton, Norwich and Diss, and as an online counsellor in Norwich, I am open helping your explore your issues in any creative ways you wish to try.

    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. 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 in Norfolk or countrywide 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.
