About the therapist:

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) and is an accredited Integrative Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

As of January 2017 I commenced his Clinical Supervision training at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute and will have completed the taught component by June 2017. I am currently working towards his Diploma in Clinical Supervision and supervises psychotherapists within my current place of work.

I have completed a BA Hons degree in Social Sciences: Psychology at Nottingham Trent University and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing at the University of Nottingham: School of Nursing. I have also worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) at HM Prison Nottingham and within various healthcare settings.

I have experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy to male and female clients (aged 16 and over) around the following issues:

  • Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, neglect)
  • Addictive behaviours
  • Anger
  • Anxiety and panic
  • Attachment difficulties
  • Childhood difficulties
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Couples Psychotherapy
  • Depression
  • Domestic abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Envy
  • Gender
  • Grief and loss
  • HIV
  • Identity
  • Jealousy
  • LGBT affirmative
  • Personality difficulties
  • Relational-Developmental Trauma
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Self-harm
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Sexuality
  • Survivors of harassment and stalking
  • Stress
  • Trauma.

It is important that the therapy that you engage with feels right for you and meets your needs. If at any point during therapy you feel that this is not the case, we can discuss this openly and explore other options that might feel more suitable. The most important thing is that you feel supported, comfortable, able and wiling to engage in a therapeutic relationship that best meets your needs.
 
As a therapist, I have a specialist interest in the area of stalking and working with the psychological impact it has on its victims, as well as trauma work with survivors of abuse, HIV, Relational-Developmental Trauma, and Couples Psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) and is an accredited Integrative Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

As of January 2017 I commenced his Clinical Supervision training at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute and will have completed the taught component by June 2017.

I receive regular clinical supervision from an experienced UKCP accredited psychotherapist for his NHS and Private Practice work and has undergone his own personal psychotherapy with a UKCP qualified psychotherapist, as required by the UKCP and SPTI MSc Integrative Psychotherapy training course.

From 2009 I worked for organisations within the NHS and have vast experience of providing weekly counselling and psychotherapy sessions to a wide range of clients with variety of emotional, relational and mental health difficulties (see the "Areas of therapy" section of this website for more information).  As well as having significant experience of working with heterosexual clients, I also has vast experience of working with clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans and integrates a gay-affirmative approach in to my practice.

Fees

Cost of a regular therapy session and duration:

  • £50 per individual Psychotherapy session.  Psychotherapy sessions will last for 50 minutes. It is important that therapy sessions begin at the agreed timeand finish on time.

  • Unfortunately no concessions are available for trainee counsellors or trainee psychotherapists at this time.

  • £45 per supervisee for Clinical Supervision sessions lasting for 60 minutes.  # Please note that this is a discounted fee from January 2017 until the Diploma in Clinical Supervision academic requirements have been submitted in June 2018.  The fee thereafter will  increase to £55 per hour.

  • £65 for couples/ relationship therapy sessions.

       * All sessions must be paid for on the day of therapy or in advance by either cash or Bank Transfer.

Cost and duration of the initial consultation:

  • £60 to £75.  This session will last for either 60 or 75 minutes, the reason for which is outlined below. This fee is to be paid on the day of the initial consultation.

It is important that you feel comfortable engaging in a therapeutic relationship that feels right for you and meets your needs. The initial consultation will last longer than an ordinary therapy session and will give both you and the therapist an opportunity to see if you can work constructively together. The session will consist of:

  • Opportunities for you to articulate some of your main worries and concerns;
  • A chance for you to explore what some of your hoped for goals for therapy are;
  • An opportunity for the therapist to understand and explore any mental health history that you may have, your personal history, childhood experiences, family history, relationship history, and any other significant experiences that you have had throughout your life.

By obtaining as much information as possible in the initial consultation session, the therapist aims to bring together some of the threads of your past and present experiences and therefore place your current difficulties within an historical context. The subsequent sessions will be somewhat less directive and will continue to provide a safe and flexible space for you and the therapist to work together to explore and make sense of what is troubling you.
