Hello and welcome to my website. My name is June Webb and I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor working in the Norwich area.
If, like many, you are feeling anxious, stressed, or are suffering from trauma or one of dozens of other conditions that we are all prey to from time to time, then why not let me for a while be a "companion" along the way while we explore together the issues that you may have.
As a special concession, I am pleased to be able to offer the option of
for those on low incomes. Note that at present I do not offer "skyping" therapy.
Please feel free to browse around these pages - the section
How I Work
and the video (soon to come) will give you an idea of how I would work with you.
You can contact me by completing the
letting me know, in the Comments box, the best time to give you a ring.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics.
Prior to training in counselling and psychotherapy I worked in a number of roles involving advocacy and casework with clients in relation to housing, health and social care. Work settings included a major homelessness charity, the Citizens Advice Bureau, Youth Justice, Carers Centre and Hospital and Community based social work settings with adults. I have worked as a student counsellor at the University of East Anglia.
My clinical training includes a PG Certificate in Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy, University of East Anglia; PG Diploma in Counselling (UEA); Mindfulness Stress Reduction; MA in Social Work, University of Sussex; BA (Hons) in Social & Political Studies.
I currently volunteer at two charitable counselling agencies, Sue Lambert Trust (providing specialist support for survivors of sexual, physical, & emotional abuse and trauma), and Off The Record (providing general counselling support.)
I have a particular interest in chronic pain management and Pastoral Counselling. My life and professional work experience includes significant involvement supporting those who care for others, and I have personal experience of being a Carer.
It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.
HOW I WORK
My therapeutic approach is Person Centred. This means in practical terms that I offer a safe, respectful space where I accompany you as we explore troubling concerns. I have no agenda other than to listen mindfully to your needs. I will actively and mindfully listen to enable you to explore your options in the here and now, and if relevant to you, explore areas of the past which still impact on your current well-being.
I offer a space for you to “be”, where my professional experience may be offered non-judgementally and unconditionally. I work in a Focusing-Oriented way, integrating mind and body, holistically enabling the acknowledgement of all aspects of your being to encourage the healing of physical and emotional wounds or hurts. These may manifest themselves in chronic headaches, back ache and other physical pain which is real and debilitating. This is not to state that pain is necessarily due to emotional trauma but is simply to acknowledge and explore what is present for you, whilst working with you in partnership with your existing health support needs.
It may be that you are aware of “something” which is troubling but is difficult to name or easily identify. This “something”, which may be on the very edge of awareness, can also be worked with in therapy to help bring it into focus. There may also be a critical "part" of you which is impeding your well-being, where you feel like running away or numbing the pain. Work can be done through our therapeutic relationship to enable your relationship with yourself to unfold gently but powerfully to help you find a way of being with whatever exists.
Our relationship is an integral part of the healing process; you are a unique person and my approach is always to reflect that. I do not give advice, diagnose or attempt to solve your issues. I will provide information if this might be useful and appropriate but only as an offer you are free to act upon or otherwise. You are the expert in your life and I respect this unconditionally.
We will meet for a first exploratory meeting to find out more about each other, about why you might find counselling helpful, the issues that you want to explore and what you want to achieve. It is an opportunity for us to ask questions and to establish if we feel we are able to work together. I appreciate it is difficult to meet with someone and talk about personal issues, and I will do my best to help you feel at ease.
The first session will be half the cost of the full sessions. All our meetings are confidential and I abide by the
BACP Code of Ethics
in regard to their Ethical Framework. If you would like to view this it is available on their website, or click the link above.
The location used for therapy sessions has wheelchair access to the ground floor. Please let me know if you need a ground floor room or if stairs are difficult for you and we will endeavour to help with ground floor access. St Andrew's Car Park is close by on Duke Street.
Confidentiality is an intrinsic aspect of counselling and psychotherapy and therefore brings with it the need for web-site security. You may have noticed, at the top of this page, there is a box that shows the web address of this particular page:
You may be familiar with the http prefix. The http
prefix, along with the associated padlock, indicates that this page is encrypted. Indeed the whole site is protected in this way, ie. it has an SSL certificate. This means that the information you enter in the Contact Form, for example, is entirely confidential and cannot be read by anyone else while the email it sends is on its way to my Inbox.
Incidentally, the protection does not stop there. The company that hosts my emails itself encrypts the emails it receives, and further, as soon as my system notices the email it is moved to a local folder which is encrypted in its own right (to the AES-256 standard.)
