Hello! I am a psychotherapist who works with individuals, and I also offer supervision for individuals or groups.
My practice is based in Gotham and West Bridgford. Both locations are easily reached by car or bus.
I have worked as a psychotherapist in private practice for the last 12 years, and also as a psychotherapist within the N.H.S, at a G.P practice, and as a volunteer therapist in schools for a charity called 'place 2 be', where I gained experience of working with children between the ages of 4-11 years.
I am experienced in E.A.P work (employment assisted programs) which helps clients explore general anxiety which they may be experiencing within the work place, or within their home life but which then impacts on work.
I have worked with clients on a short term (6 weeks) and long term (6 years +) basis. I also work with clients on an open - ended basis.
Prior to practicing as a psychotherapist I worked in the public sector for 10 years where I gained experience of working with child abuse and domestic violence.
I have completed a four year Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham and I am U.K.C.P. registered.
I am in fortnightly supervision with a U.K.C.P. registered supervisor also.
I consider myself a warm, calm, approachable human being. I work using an Integrative approach which helps us develop and build a therapeutic relationship from which we will be able to explore the issues which you bring to therapy, at your pace.
If you would like more information I would be happy to speak with you on the phone.
