MNCS, MBACP - Adult & Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy

About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced individual and couples counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to talk about thoughts and feelings that you are struggling to contain and finding that your day to day life is affected.

My skill is to listen without judgement and help you to make sense of your difficulties by offering new perspectives on them and the impact you are feeling. It often helps just to have someone to listen who is not your family or friends.

I have my own private practice which is based at Ransom Wood Business Park which is set in acres of woodland on the outskirts of Mansfield. There is plenty of free parking and a cafe/restaurant on site. It is a tranquil setting that will help bring some calm into your thoughts

Life seems to have taken an unexpected turn for us all, bringing with it many personal challenges. The feeling of isolation and loss as a result of lockdown may have increased your feelings of anxiety and depression. Difficult relationships may be causing you distress and damaging your self- esteem. A bereavement may have left you numb, lost or angry. Your work situation may be causing you sleepless nights and inner worry. Let me help.

Your relationship with a partner may have come under strain during these difficult times. If you need help to bring about change for you both to help address the issues that have got in the way, I offer relationship therapy for couples.

 Counselling with me does not have to be a long drawn out process. You may just need someone to talk for a few sessions. We can decide together the support you will need. You will not have to wait weeks or months for a slot. I am here for you now. We can meet by phone, online or face to face in a Covid safe space in my room. Pick up the phone right now or email me to book an appointment.

BACP

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.

Further information

We all have times in our life that challenge us. It might be happening to you right now. It may be things that have happened to you in your past that continue to affect your quality of life. It can be a very difficult decision to come for counselling. You may have asked yourselves lots of questions before getting to this stage. It is very important that you feel comfortable and safe and that you trust the counsellor you choose. It really does help to have someone you can talk to in a completely confidential way. I won't judge you, I will listen and allow you the space to make sense of your worries and help you to find an inner calm.

I am able to work with couples who are facing relationship difficulties and who need help reconnecting

My therapeutic approach is ethical and professional according to the BACP Ethical Framework. I have a full indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS.
