About me

I provide counselling and psychotherapy in Nottingham for adults and children, working with a wide range of issues and problems.
I also deliver training and workshops covering a range of personal development and management/business related issues.

How I work

My therapeutic approach is humanistic, integrative, and relational.
For most people that doesn’t really mean very much, so here's a brief explanation.

Humanistic

My basic beliefs about people:

  • everyone has essential worth
  • people are not 'good' or 'bad' – we all have potential for both
  • we all have the capacity to choose
  • people are responsible for themselves
  • people have the power to change and grow
  • we exist in relationship with the world around us
  • the truth about people is more than the sum of all the parts

Integrative

Humanistic therapies are all based on the beliefs above, and there are many theories and ways of understanding people that have stemmed from this.
But there are also lots of other ways to approach this. I don’t stick rigidly to ‘a way to do therapy’ but incorporate aspects of many different theories including some of the ‘non-humanistic’ ones. I do this because I believe that they are useful and helpful to the work of therapy. Just as no two people are ever the same, I don’t believe that any one sort of therapy can ever be adequate for everyone.

Relational

I place particular importance and value on the relationship that develops between myself and the client. I believe that we all exist in relationship with the world around us, and so when we are trying to make changes, or solve problems, or make sense of our experiences, we also do that in relationship. Therapy is very different to most other relationships you may have – that’s part of it’s value, but it is still a relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a wide range of experience of working with people who are in need of support, or experiencing difficulty. I have previously worked in mental health, supported housing, and alternative education. In 2007 I started my journey to being a therapist, completing a Counselling Concepts course.

In 2013 I gained a BSc (Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy with the Sherwood Institute in Nottingham.

Since then I have also completed a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
