About me

I know it takes courage to seek help and I understand how difficult or overwhelming it may feel.  If you are feeling stuck and unable to move forward then maybe counselling can help. I am an experienced therapist at Nottinghamshire MIND. I also work with private clients. 

I am a genuine, down to earth therapist who can offer both long and short term one to one counselling and psychotherapy.  Offering more than an off-the-shelf solution; I tailor and integrate a range of therapies to suit your individual needs as I believe we are all truly unique.  At the heart of my practice is the relationship between the therapist and client, encouraging a potential for growth. Offering a safe, supportive, confidential space with warmth, empathy, and no judgement. Working at your own pace, we can gently explore aspects and issues in your life that may make you feel 'less able'. Encouraging your own natural abilities facilitates growth, resilience and self-regulation; enabling you to resolve issues and enjoy a happier,  more joyful life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
