Natalie Coupland MA MBACP UKCP
9 Hucknall Road
I am a registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor with 9 years clinical experience working with a wide range of issues. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy(UKCP), I hold full professional insurance and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. This includes a continued commitment to ongoing supervision and training. I have a private practice in the centre of Nottingham (NG5) and in Farnsfield (NG22), near Southwell. Both venues have free parking, are well served by public transport and offer quiet, comfortable surroundings with a high degree of privacy.
The service I provide offers clients an opportunity to talk in confidence to someone who has a professional understanding of emotional difficulties. My aim is to support you to develop greater insight into the issues that are bothering you and enable the discovery of possible new ways of dealing with them. I will not judge you or try to influence your decisions in any way but instead will respect your ability to make your own choices in finding ways to move forward.
What happens next?
Following initial contact, a telephone conversation usually takes place lasting approximately 15-20mins. This is an opportunity to briefly discuss the difficulties you are experiencing and for us both to decide if counselling can offer what you are looking for. There is no charge for this service. The next step is to arrange a first session where you can get a sense of what it might be like to work together. I fully appreciate that the decision to come to counselling takes courage and is a big commitment in time, money and emotion, so it is important to me that you feel as fully informed and as comfortable as possible in making that decision. This initial session is intended to facilitate that process.
There is no obligation for clients to continue at this stage but should you choose to do so, clients are usually invited to book 5 subsequent sessions with the aim of reviewing how things are going at the end of that time. We may then agree to end, or decide to continue for a set period of time, or indeed to work on an open-ended basis. Ideally sessions are arranged at regular weekly intervals, although flexibility to allow for work and family commitments is usually possible. Unless otherwise specified, all sessions last for 50 minutes plus 5 minutes at the beginning or end for administration purposes.
