Beatrice Norville - Counsellor for adults, adolescents, teenagers and children in Colliers Wood, South West London
My name is Beatrice. You can call me Bea.
I know how it feels to be down, to not know where to turn, feel there's no way out, to be trapped, fearful, panicked, to be isolated and feel alone... you don't have to go through what you're going through on your own.
Are you struggling to cope in a relationship?
Is your past haunting you or are you fearful and worried about your future?
Are you feeling down, stressed out or crippled by indecision?
Are you not sure about what you want out of life?
Or perhaps you just need someone to talk to who will listen unconditionally...
A counsellor may be able to help you...
Not everyone is blessed with the ability to be strong and resilient during all major life crises. We can all benefit from professional help during a crisis in our life. Seeking help from a counsellor doesn’t mean you are weak. Actually, reaching out for help shows that you are wise enough to understand something is wrong and can take bold steps to overcome it.
My logo is an Adinkra symbol from Ghana, West Africa. The symbol combines two separate Adinkra symbols, the 'Morning Star' which can mean a new start to the day, placed inside the wheel, representing rotation or independent movement. "Sesa wo suban" literally means change or transform your character or "Sesa woruban" means change your life - it is a symbol representing life transformation.

From the exploration of your thoughts and feelings we can work through what options you have open to you to consider any actions and how you wish to take things forward.

"Initially, I was very afraid to start therapy. Beatrice quickly eliminated all the anxiety I had around starting therapy. Her office was always comfortable, and she made me feel very welcome. As I got deeper in to my journey, I appreciated Bea even more as she always so understanding and allowed me to speak, heal and grow at my own pace. She was always so empathetic and I never felt unheard or misunderstood. It was always so easy to open up to her. Bea has really helped me to connect the dots in my life and the way she does it is incredible. Her timing is perfect she knows wen to make you laugh and when it's time to cry and sometimes both. I am really grateful for her help. I can honestly say therapy with Bea has changed my life for the better. I have learnt so much and I have grown a lot. I recommend Bea to everyone I speak to. I honestly do not believe my journey would have been the same with a different therapist. Thank you Beatrice for all your support."
"Seeing Beatrice helped me to not overthink situations that I have no control over. Instead I will just analyse situations and think I have no control over it so let me just move on." Young person, 13 years old
"My daughter saw Beatrice for a couple of months whilst experiencing bullying and anxiety at school. The sessions helped her to make sense of what she was experiencing and to develop strategies to deal with the issues going forward." Parent of young person, aged 13
"From my initial phone consultation through to my final session, Beatrice's empathetic and open-minded approach put me at ease. Her counselling sessions provided me with a safe and non-judgemental environment where I could work through my anxieties, and she has helped me increase my confidence and manage major changes in my life. I would highly recommend Beatrice to anyone seeking a compassionate person-centred counsellor."
"Bea provided me with a calm and safe environment where I could explore and address my issues at my own pace. I was met with understanding, open-mindedness and respect. I have found the whole experience invaluable and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help."
"I found Beatrice helped me through a hard time and over the weeks I learnt to trust my gut feelings in difficult situations. Beatrice guided me by asking questions about my thoughts and feelings and I now feel in a much better and happier place." Young person, aged 14
"When I signed my daughter up for a weekly counselling session with Beatrice, what I wanted most was for my daughter to know she had a safe place to go each week - a place where she would not be judged and a place where she could explore her feelings in a calm, confidential and objective way. My hopes for my daughter were more than realised. I am extremely grateful to Beatrice for giving my daughter the lifeline she needed at the time and I would highly recommend Beatrice to any teenager needing a bit of an emotional boost." Mother of young person, aged 14
