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.

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.
