A very warm welcome!
My name is Jim Collier and I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist in central Norwich providing short- and long-term therapy (both online and in person). I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment to clients living in central Norwich and the surrounding areas. My personal pronouns are he/him/his.
The decision to start therapy can be a difficult first step towards healing, and finding the right therapist is crucial. Research shows that the relationship between psychotherapist and client is one of the main factors in successful therapy. We are often wounded in relationship, either as children or as adults, and I believe it is in relationship that we can also be healed.
As a therapist in central Norwich, I work with individuals aged 18 and older on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
In addition to my private work with clients, I have worked as a volunteer counsellor at the University of East Anglia Counselling Service and at the Norwich Centre. I also provide counselling services through an Employee Assistance Program, and I have served as a listening volunteer for Samaritans.
I am experienced in working with clients dealing with issues related to:

"I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation." ~ Peter A. Levine
My Approach To Therapy
My core training is person-centred therapy, an approach pioneered by Carl Rogers in the 1940s as an alternative to traditional psychotherapy. Person-centred therapy moves away from the idea of the therapist as an expert who can fix you, trusting instead that you have the innate capacity to fulfil your own potential, given the right conditions. A strong and caring therapeutic relationship, based in genuine acceptance and empathic understanding, forms the foundation of person-centred therapy.
I am passionate about the approach that I use, and I love the challenge of my work with clients. I choose to work in a person-centred way because it is a deeply respectful and effective approach to therapy.
