Practising in Nottingham and also offering counselling on-line. I aim to provide a warm, accepting environment where clients are supported and helped effectively to deal with issues they bring. The authentic, confidential and secure atmosphere for therapy or counselling allows the opportunity to explore, understand and work towards therapeutic goals.

Email or call and we can speak to arrange an initial meeting. An initial meeting will be for both you and I to get an idea if and how we could work together. We would also talk about how often we might meet and the few other practicalities for starting the process, the initial consultation is free.
Although I would like to regularly review where we are in the course of the work, this is also an on-going process. Taking a short amount of time to review the work helps to make sure we keep in focus your therapeutic goals. I keep client goals in mind at all times, to ensure we are working effectively.
Of course any client is free to finish at any time. It has proven to be valuable to give some notice to the completion of our work together, I hope that clients will neither feel cheated because they were pushed out before feeling ready nor held onto beyond the goals that they've set.
I've trained on an on going basis since 2003 and I blend a number of styles of work, based on both training and style requirement for where I've worked. This means I can work in a brief or more solution focussed manner and also with clients on a longer term basis with more complex or challenging issues.
Training and History:
I practised initially providing Anger Management training for the British Association of Anger Management. Once I'd completed that specific training and started working for BAAM I then starting training with Spectrum, a Humanistic Integrative Experiential centre in London to continue extending my therapeutic practice. The Anger Management courses proved successful in Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centres where I then moved on to practice, whilst continuing training. Around 2006 I moved from London to the East Midlands and started a training at Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute for a Post Graduate qualification and towards accreditation by UKCP (one of the two most significant accrediting organisations in the UK), which I completed in 2013. Throughout this time I've maintained a private practice working with individuals, couples and groups.
