About me

Welcome and thank you for reading my profile.

It takes courage to seek help and I understand how difficult or overwhelming it may feel.  If you are feeling stuck, anxious, distressed and unable to move forward then maybe counselling can help. I am an experienced therapist at Nottinghamshire MIND and CASY. I also work with private clients from young children to older adults.

I am a genuine, down to earth therapist able to offer long or short term one to one counselling and psychotherapy. 

Offering more than an off-the-shelf solution; I respectfully 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 the 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 strengths and natural abilities to facilitate growth, resilience and self-regulation; enabling you to resolve issues and enjoy a happier,  more joyful life.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

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.
