I am taking on new clients for both face-to-face sessions with social distancing maintained and online for those who prefer. I am happy to talk to you about different ways of communicating online and help with setting this up, as well as transitioning back to face-to-face if you would like when this feels right for you.
I am also offering some reduced rate spaces available for those who have lost work or been financially affected by COVID-19. Please contact me for more information.
I offer a non-judgemental, safe environment to help you understand yourself and your life. Counselling can support you to find your own insights, new ways of being with yourself and others, and work towards healing and freedom. It can be a space to get things off your chest, rest or reset, find perspective and understanding in life and relationships, as well as having someone to really hear and be with you as you share and explore what is difficult.
Counselling can help with a variety of issues, some of the areas I work with are: anxiety, depression, stress management, bereavement, long term illness, relationship issues, spirituality and loss/change of identity. You are free to bring any experience or issues that are important to you for us to work with. I have had training in supporting people given different mental health diagnoses to help process and understand experiences that may be challenging.
I also offer counselling for couples, giving you both time and space to be heard by each other, introducing different communication styles and working through things as they arise. We can explore how your personal issues affect the way you relate, and how best to support each other in your relationship.
My practice is informed by Buddhist philosophy and meditation, which I have been exploring and supporting others with for over 15 years, emphasising embodied awareness and compassion. This helps me to stay present and offer different ways of being with experience.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham, graduating with a Level 7 Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework.
I have been practising counselling and psychotherapy since 2014 and started up my private practice from home in 2018. I work at another counselling practice in Beeston and have previously offered counselling at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, Nottinghamshire Hospice and the Carer’s Federation. I also worked as a Registered Adult Nurse for a number of years.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
