Your first session will establish your needs and match you to the most suitable Counsellor for you.

An initial appointment will be made where we can discuss your issues and take things forward.
Founder and Director: Amanda Jayne
I worked for Mind as the Lead High Intensity Counsellor at West Norfolk Mind. I hold a Masters in Counselling and I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am also a member of East Anglian Counselling Alliance, a group of Counsellors who cover the Norfolk and Suffolk area. (www.eastangliacounsellingalliance.com). I work to BACP's ethical framework and code of practice for counsellors and psychotherapists. I work alongside companies in London working with Nurses, Kings Lynn Borough Council, local High Schools and businesses as well as taking referrals from doctors surgeries.
I write a mental health/agony column for Let's Talk magazine.
I am also a qualified Focus Oriented Psychotherapist, and Focusing Trainer.
I hold an enhanced CRB. I regularly undertake training to keep up to date with developments within psychotherapy.
After going through several difficult issues of my own I finally sought the help of a Therapist. It was a life changing experience for me, and one which has enabled me to lead a happier and more fulfilled life. I was very nervous about seeking counselling and lucky to find an excellent Counsellor with whom I felt comfortable. I do therefore understand how important it is to find a Therapist with whom you feel completely at ease, so feel free to call me for an informal chat.
I work with adults on a variety of difficult issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, couples counselling, divorce and separation, abuse, low self-esteem, stress, bereavement, self-harm, loneliness, suicidal feelings, separation anxiety, eating disorders, ocd, anger management, addiction, work issues, lack of motivation etc. amongst others.
I work with other companies providing Counselling for employees.
I hold counselling sessions at my comfortable, quiet consulting room at St Ann's House, St Ann's Street, right in the centre of Kings Lynn around the corner from Tuesday Market Place; and in the centre of Hunstanton on the coast. The sessions will be for a duration of 50 minutes.
I also offer Skype Counselling which is becoming more and more popular. Perhaps you travel often or cannot get into Kings Lynn, or maybe it is difficult for you to fit the travel time into your busy week. Skype sessions are as effective as face to face counselling and quick and easy to set up. Contact me for details and we can try a first session to see if you are comfortable with it before we plan more sessions.
Our time together will be spent exploring the issues that you bring in a safe and supporting environment. Together we will work on the issues which are affecting your life to find a way for you to deal with what is going on for you, and help you to resolve them so that you can feel happier and more at ease. I understand that it can be very difficult to talk about certain issues and I will try to help you feel as comfortable with this as is possible.
Like many of us I have had to deal with some difficulties in my life. After many years searching for a fulfilling career in the helping profession, I trained as a Psychotherapist and I love the job that I do, particularly as I have been on the receiving end of therapy and I know that it can be life changing.
Lots of us just need someone neutral to talk to who will not judge us and who will have great empathy for what we are going through. Lots of us need help to come to terms with what we have been through in life and help us find a way to lead a happier and more fulfilled life. Perhaps you have a particular issue or perhaps you are not quite sure yet what is making life difficult for you.
If you have any concerns that you would like me to answer with regards to counselling/psychotherapy I would be happy to answer them for you if I can. What I always suggest is that we have a first session to see how we get on. If you feel that the session went well and you are comfortable with your therapist we can arrange further sessions. If, for any reason, you don't feel that it's quite right for you, then we will help you find another more suitable Counsellor, or perhaps another avenue you might explore. It's so important for you to feel totally at ease so that we can work together on the issues.
Please feel free to call me or email me and I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you too. I am very happy to have a chat on the phone and answer any questions you may have before we make the appointment. We can then arrange a first session, at the end of which you and I can decide if we will carry on together or if you need to see one of my team. I look forward to meeting you.

Harley St Psychotherapy fully supports up and coming Psychotherapists. We currently have Student Counsellors in their third year of counselling training, which means they have done all the theory and passed all the tests and now have to undertake 100 hours clinical practice to finalise the qualification. They have all been working in Support roles prior to starting their formal counselling training, therefore have lots of experience already of working in a helping profession.
Student Counsellors are fully supervised and supported by fully trained, qualified and experienced Counsellors. If you are happy to see a Student Counsellor you will have an assessment session to see which would be most suited to your issue. Sessions with Student Counsellors are at a concessionary rate of £35.
