Our Credentialed Therapists

UPDATED       4.07.17

Our credentialed therapists have been verified by the counselling services manager for their qualifications, experience and their professional responsibilities. The therapists have their own private settings from where they work and mostly offer 1:1 counselling during usual business hours. Richard offers  a group therapy session, see below for more details.

Please understand that the Credentialed Therapists do not offer a rapid response service. They are unable to respond to urgent enquiries in order to provide safety. If you are in urgent need of support please contact your GP in the first instance or call 111.

You can choose to look through the therapists profiles below and contact them directly or get in touch with the counselling services manager at Norwich Mind to discuss your options.

Deb Hare – BSc (hons), Cert. CBT, UKCP.      Norwich.       Has spaces

I work in an empathetic way and am non judgemental and believe in confidentiality. I work spontaneously.  I will help you to become more aware of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour which then enables you to grow an inner strength and move forward in your life.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I blend person centred theory, gestalt and cbt techniques into my practice.

Counselling may benefit anyone who has something in their lives that makes them feel less than content. You may be seeking help for anything and everything, including family and relationship issues, low self-esteem, anxiety about illness and ageing, loneliness, despondency and feeling aimless or angry. They may best be helped by brief and solution-focused counselling, or open-ended integrative psychotherapeutic counselling. I look forward to supporting you. Please contact me to discuss an initial session.

I believe that any therapy intervention can be hard work and needs dedication, it  is not a cure all and it requires commitment from us both, however entering into a therapy journey could be one of the most powerful commitments you make.
