About me

I believe that it is a brave step to reach out for help and take action to change ones life. As a result, the selection of a therapist who is the best fit for you and your particular personality is an important choice. Let me make a few comments about my work in order to help you decide whether contacting me would be useful.

I have many years of therapeutic experience and have worked successfully with a wide range of clients from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. My approach is totally non judgemental, confidential and relaxed. I have a first class honours degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Nottingham and I use a variety of therapeutic approaches in my work. Over the years I have collaborated with clients helping them to gain control over issues ranging from anxiety and depression to low self-image, addiction, sexual abuse, grief and loss and relationships to mention but a few. I am confident that I will be able to support, guide and help you no matter what your particular area of concern is. I have worked very successfully with individuals, groups and couples/families.

Clients of both genders and all sexual orientations have spent time in my office diligently working towards their goals. I understand that when someone takes the step to have counselling they want to make changes and I take that very seriously. Each client I see is treated as an individual as I understand we are all totally unique and therapy can never be a One Size Fits All approach and I will work with you to find the best therapeutic approach for your own individual needs.

Additionally, I am also qualified as an Addiction specialist and have had excellent success in working with those in the depths of addiction as well as those in recovery,

I aim to develop a relationship of mutual trust with my clients as this  allows them to talk without fear or embarrassment about the issues that are causing difficulties in their lives. My approach is that clients should only see me for as long as is necessary. I therefore aim to provide my clients with the necessary tools to enable them to successfully deal with their own issues without the need for any therapeutic involvement. My premises are in Arnold with good bus links, however, if required I am able to see you in the privacy and comfort of your own home, as I understand that some people find travelling difficult  or feel more at ease discussing personal issues in familiar surroundings. I am prepared to travel to anywhere within Nottinghamshire.   I am also able to offer Skype counselling to those who prefer this.
