Biography


I worked for Mind as the Lead High Intensity Counsellor at West Norfolk Mind. I hold a Masters in Counselling and I am a Registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I work to BACP's ethical framework and code of practice for counsellors and psychotherapists. I work alongside companies in London and Norfolk working with Nurses, Kings Lynn Borough Council, local High Schools and businesses as well as taking referrals from doctors surgeries.
I write a monthly mental health/agony column for Let's Talk magazine.

I am also a qualified Focus Oriented Psychotherapist, and Focusing Trainer.

I regularly undertake training to keep up to date with developments within psychotherapy.

After working for Mind I set up my own Private Practice which quickly grew through recommendations from Doctors, Schools, Businesses, Local Authorities and word of mouth. I then moved from a rented room at the Discovery Centre to my own Consulting Rooms in St. Ann's House, Kings Lynn. During that time I also set up a Private Practice working from Harley Street in Central London. Hence the name of the company. I soon found it too much to travel and work in London as well as fit busy city folks into a two day slot, plus the Norfolk business was getting busier and busier. I therefore cut my hours down to working mainly online for my London Clients so that I could concentrate on the Norfolk Business which was growing rapidly.

Due to demand I soon realised that in order to be able to help as many people as possible, I needed to find more highly trained and experienced people and, over the course of 10 years, I have trained, worked with, Supervised or had recommended to me this team of superb Psychotherapists and Counsellors. I am privileged to work with people I consider to be the best at what they do. Our team is growing with demand and so one of us at least will be well suited to your needs.

We always suggest a first session to make sure you feel totally at ease and comfortable with your Therapist, then we take it from there so don't worry about being obligated to carry on if it doesn't feel right. Our aim is to find you the right Therapist at the right time (which is usually when you have made up your mind to have some therapy) and help you on your way to more contentment and happiness.



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 First Year Improvers and Student Counsellors. First Year Improvers are fully qualified and, having completely their required 100 hours of clinical work to qualify with us at Harley St Psychotherapy, they are now in their first year of practice as a Counsellor.

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 and First Year Improver Counsellors are fully supervised and supported by fully trained, qualified and experienced Counsellors. If you are happy to see a Student Counsellor or a First Year Improver, you will have an assessment session to see which would be most suited to your issue. Sessions with these two categories are at a concessionary rate of 35-45. Please contact us to discuss.
