3 City Road
I am a person centred counsellor working from home in the Vale of Belvoir. I have a comfortable and dedicated room for counselling with ensuite facilities. My room is on the ground floor and has wheelchair access. I am also able to travel and visit you at home for a small additional fee to cover my fuel costs.
I am currently able to offer evening and weekend appointments. I welcome enquires from individuals, couples and counselling students.
I am registered with the BACP and work within their professional and ethical guidelines. I am experienced in a range of issues.
For a free, no obligation, 45 minute session to see if it feels right to work with me please get in touch.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified nurse with over 30 years experience of working in the NHS. 12 years ago I attended my first counselling course aimed at improving communication for nurses. Since then I have gradually worked my way through to full qualification in counselling.
I gained a first class honours degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice from the University of Nottingham. I am nearing completion of a Masters qualification in Trauma Studies also with the University of Nottingham. In the past I have volunteered for ISAS (Incest and Sexual Abuse Survivors) and I have also worked for Counselling Xtra in Nottingham.
I have attended further training in working with children and adolescents, working creatively with clients, gestalt therapy, working with depression, sexual abuse, eating disorders, and grief and loss.
I am trained and experienced in group therapy and have facilitated a group of male childhood sexual abuse survivors. I have an interest in reproductive loss and grief.
