Putting You on the Path to Self-Exploration

It may be that you've had therapy or counselling in the past that has benefitted you in the short-term, but not in the mid- or long-term.

My approach as a therapist in Norfolk isn't about treating your challenges as problems to be solved, but symptoms of something deeper which we then work together to tackle.

Nancy, therapist in Norfolk



Hi, I am Nancy Bainbridge.
Thank you for visiting Therapy Path.


I am a dedicated in-person and online therapist in Norfolk, committed to guiding you onto a path towards health and wellbeing. Specialising in the person-centred school of therapy, I draw not only on my qualifications but my extensive experience as a counsellor for mental health services throughout the county. I also worked as a senior manager for many years, which gives me plenty of firsthand knowledge on work-related stress and anxiety.

Think of counselling as a pathway through some dark woods – We can hold a torch which will illuminate the way forwards, but ultimately, it's up to you to walk it.

That's why my approach is all about you. Whether you are looking for clear action points to follow or a more open-ended path to discovery, I can adapt to suit you and your needs.

Beyond my professional identity, I am a proud mother to adult children who further enrich my understanding of life's diverse challenges. Outside the counselling room you can find me enjoying yoga and reading in the sun.



What qualifications and memberships do I hold?

I am a practitioner at a well-respected psychiatric practice, where I provide comprehensive and personalised counselling.

My qualifications include:

  • A DipHE in person-centred counselling from the University of Suffolk
  • Level 5 diploma in person-centred counselling
  • Level 4 diploma in person-centred counselling
  • Level 2 and level 3 diploma in counselling

Outside of this, I am a member of:

  • British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Person-Centred Association
  • National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society
  • The Information Commissioner's Office




I have been having counselling with Nancy for just over a year now. She has a caring and soft manor about her, with a professional and impartial approach. I find our sessions a great way to help deal with the stresses of past trauma and current situations I find difficult to process. During our sessions the techniques used by Nancy, are uncomplicated and very useful for me to discuss a situation or past trauma and to figure out a resolution. I can then feel uplifted from a heavy mind and stress, this is very good for me to keep a clear head, stay focused and keep good mental heath.
