How I Work


Person-Centred counselling is a non-directive approach based on the assumption that a client seeking help in the resolution of the problem they are experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor who is sufficiently accepting to allow the client to freely express themselves without being directed.

I am trained and committed to listening to you in a special way that doesn’t judge you, nor tell you what to do. I offer you a caring, compassionate and confidential relationship where you can openly and freely explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions as much or as little as you wish to. This can help you to make sense of your experiences, accept your feelings, gain a new perspective or help you find ways of coping with the difficulties that you might be facing. It can also lead to greater self-trust, confidence and self-esteem, and will enable you to develop your own inner resources. The objective is for you to become able to see yourself as a person with the power and freedom to change; to become your own expert.

I understand the need for privacy and confidentiality, and my practice in Tivetshall operates from quiet and secluded rooms. I offer 1-hour sessions, following on from an initial session to establish that we would like to work together.


This is absolute unless I have serious concerns for your or another’s safety. In such an instance I would endeavour to discuss the matter with you. I adhere to the BACP Code of Conduct & Ethical Guidelines.

Under the GDPR (data protection) regulations which came into effect in May 2018, I inform you that any information I would hold about you is properly protected – by passwords on my laptop and mobile phone, and by a code that bears no relation to your name on my hard copy files which are kept in a locked filing cabinet. I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
