About me

I hold a BA (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling and I'm an Individual member of the BACP. I'm in my final year of studying an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI), and I'm working towards accreditation with the UKCP.

I offer a professional service from my private practice in Nottingham, in a relaxed comfortable environment. My services include, individual short and long term Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I have experience of providing Counselling and Psychotherapy to male and female clients, aged from 5 to 68 years, in schools and organisational settings.

I work in accordance with the SPTI and BACP Ethical Framework, and the UKCP Code of Ethics. Also, I undertake personal therapy and clinical supervision of my work to ensure that I provide an effective, safe and ethical service.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced psychotherapist, who works to a high standard of professional ethics (SPTI, BACP and UKCP). I originally trained as a Humanistic Counsellor and hold a BA (Hons) degree, from the University of Nottingham. I am currently in my final year reading an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI). My training is registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and I am working towards accreditation as an Integrative Psychotherapist with them.

My formal qualifications include:

  • BA (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling
  • Post Graduate Foundation in Integrative Psychotherapy (SPTI/ UKCP)
  • Post Graduate Certificate in Integrative Psychotherapy (SPTI/UKCP)
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (SPTI/UKCP)

I have experience working in the health and social sector and charitable organisations. I currently work both in private practice and within 2 counselling services, and have previously worked in voluntary settings offering therapy to children, young people, and adults. I previously worked within the NHS as a student nurse.

Member organisations



I charge £45 for an assessment session and £35 for consecutive 50 minute sessions. All fees are payable in cash at the time of appointment. With prior agreement, payments may be made via online bank transfer prior to the appointment, unless an alternative pre-arranged agreement is in place.

I do reserve limited places for reduced fees dependent on low income to committed clients, as can be discussed at assessment stage.

Further information

The approach which I practice from is a developmental-relational approach that uses further integration of Psychodynamic and Humanistic Psychology. The central aim of the therapy is to establish a therapeutic relationship which will lead to a corrective emotional relationship.

My Integrative approach involves integrating different psychotherapeutic approaches and drawing them together based on central psychotherapeutic principles. These are, that the client-therapist relationship is an essential aspect of growth and change, and that how we are as adults is formed through our childhood experiences and later events. As children, if parts of us are not supported in developing they cannot integrate into becoming part of our personality. This is an area where psychotherapy can help.

Speaking from experience, choosing a therapist is a big decision and I would like to ensure that you feel you make the right choice, so feel free to book an assessment session with me to see if we could work effectively together.

My practice is in a quiet residential area, it is usually easy to park near the house. My consulting room is situated on the first floor.
