Anita Day, Counsellor / Walk & Talk Therapist
Have you lost your mojo? Do you wear masks in everyday life - like the 'everything's ok mask'? Do you want to explore who you really are and stop putting on a charade to the rest of the world? If so I can help. Personal development has always been my thing, even in my last role as a senior manager in the logistics industry, and I was keen to give my staff every opportunity to develop, use their strengths and identify their weaknesses.
I have a particular interest and specialise in life transitions, identity, self-esteem/self-worth and personal development, men's issues such as erectile dysfunction, and sexual trauma such as childhood sexual abuse.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer traditional counselling 1-2-1 sessions in Nottingham city, Sherwood area also outside the city in Hucknall. I am also trained to provide telephone and online counselling, and walking therapy in a variety of parks across the Nottinghamshire and parts of Derbyshire.
All charged at £40 per hour session and sessions are weekly or can be bi-weekly depending on circumstance. Counselling works if you can 'build traction' week on week so big gaps in therapy are not recommended.
For complex trauma, I suggest a minimum of 6 months counselling in weekly sessions, for further details please get in touch.
I do not believe there should be a barrier to receiving therapy so if you are reading my profile and you really identify with it, contact me for a free consultation.
Click on message me and let me know when you are available and your contact details and I will get in touch. It's important to find a counsellor that you feel really 'gets' you, so during our initial telephone conversation (approximately 20 minutes), you can get an understanding of how I work and whether you would like to book a session. This means you are under no obligation and do not pay for the initial chat.
