About me

Hello, my name is Andrew Hope. I am a qualified therapist and offer professional counselling to individuals with a diversity of presentations.

I have extensive experience of working with depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self esteem, sexual abuse, emotional and relationship issues (both current and from the past), and special needs. I also work with those who may have lost their way in life and who may want to work creatively to enhance self or personal development to achieve their full potential.

I offer a specialist service of working with mental health and spirituality related issues.

I have experience of providing support with a wide range of mental health issues (particularly schizophrenia, psychosis and hearing voices), and in helping individuals to begin to understand what may have caused or be maintaining present difficulties. This may involve addressing the stigma of initial psychiatric assessment and helping individuals to find solutions or develop coping strategies for often ongoing and distressing symptoms.

You may want to explore issues that relate to faith or personal beliefs, either because they give your life meaning or hope and are important to your personal development, or because you may have had some difficult or judgemental experiences that have impacted upon your health or sense of well being? You will be able to share without feeling judged so that you can begin to address the issues that may be causing you concern or distress.

I provide a safe, non judgemental and therapeutic environment that will help you to feel relaxed and to explore the things in your life that are really important to you.

I practice from a comfortable office at home in Ilkeston situated between Nottingham and Derby.
