Who We Are

Cognitive Behavioural Therapists


Crisis Resolution was formed by Polly Burns and Mike Pickup over six years ago, as we both felt that therapy should be as individual as the person receiving it – bespoke – not making the person fit a theory. We passionately believe that therapy is fundamentally about curiosity – enquiring not what we are doing but why? We want to offer an experience that is engaging, challenging, life changing and at times with a touch of humour. It doesn’t have to be dark rooms, pot pourris and boxes of tissues to make a long lasting and effective change.Learning never stops, since qualification we have accrued several thousand hours successfully working with a huge range of people and the broad issues they bring. We have continued to train for at least fifty hours a year, both adding to our professional development, knowledge and skill with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and we both undertake regular supervision.

We are both UKCP registered psychotherapeutic counsellors and are mainly based in Norwich.

We work with individuals and couples on a one-to-one basis, for either brief CBT focused work or for longer term counselling.

We are experienced in helping people who have encountered difficulties as a result of:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anger
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Traumatic experience

Our practice is close to Norwich city centre, a short walk from Norwich market, with easy access from the surrounding areas.

We also have rooms in Ipswich and Woodbridge serving most of Suffolk.

From Fakenham, Holt, Aylsham and Wymondham. We are within easy reach of Ipswich, Woodbridge, Framlingham, Diss and see people from most parts of Norfolk and Suffolk
