Jamie Lickfold MBPsS MBACP BSc (Hons)
15 Bentwell Avenue
Hi, I’m Jamie, thanks for visiting my profile, I know it can be hard to get to this stage. You might be here because you feel something’s not right or you might know exactly what you want to work on. Either way couselling can help.
I have 10 years of training and experience in psychology and counselling and whilst I have a good understanding of how counselling works I’m not an expert in you; I’ve found that people know deep down what’s best for them, and I provide a space where people can explore what they need to more deeply.
Exploration does not necessarily mean talking it through. This could mean working creatively: my counselling room is equipped with an electric piano and other musical instruments. I've also been a mindfulness practitioner for 14 years and this can be incorporated into therapy. It's up to you how you want to use counselling; if you're more comfortable talking things through, then that's fine.
I’ll provide a safe haven where you have my complete attention. I will listen without judgment and strive to understand your experience as fully as I can. The more you explore what’s troubling you the more you can accept where you are and how to move forwards. I welcome your feedback; if something’s not helping please let me know. I continue to work on my personal development and read new research in order to further develop my acceptance, empathy and understanding.
It can be difficult to find the right counsellor which is why I offer an introductory session for £15. This will give you the opportunity to see whether you’ll be comfortable working with me and ask any questions that you need to. Please contact me if you have any initial questions. I look forward to meeting you.

I have some evening slots available.
I also have some reduced-rate spaces in the daytime available for students / pensioners / low-waged clients / other concessions (£25). If you really can't afford this please get in touch as I may be able to suggest lower cost alternatives.
I accept cash at the end of each session; alternatively you can pay via paypal or bank transfer prior to the session.
I live on a quiet road a few minutes walk from Arnold town centre (down the road from Costa). There's plenty of buses from central Nottingham. I'm close to Sherwood, Mapperley, Calverton and Basford.
