MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP Accredited, MBACP

About me

We are all unique and present different ranges of issues requiring highly tailored therapy. I am a UKCP accredited, Clinical Integrative Psychotherapist, trained to a master’s level. I work in a relational, humanistic way and utilise our relationship to support you in working out the changes you are seeking, offering awareness, and understanding to create a better relationship with ourselves and others. I have limited availability within my private practice, where I work offering short- and long-term psychotherapy with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, grief and childhood issues.

I offer a range of psychotherapeutic interventions, offering healing and growth to an extensive range of clients in a relaxed, professional environment where you can explore and learn about yourself, understand your thinking, feelings, and behaviours in relation to your here and now problems.

I have a particular interest in the awareness of our behaviour patterns and why we feel compelled to repeat these patterns of a lifetime.  I support and have a deep understanding and respect for gender identity, transitioning and working with the LGBTQ+ community. 

I know contacting a therapist can feel daunting. I believe that the relationship between us is important, and I invite you to contact me by email, text, or phone to begin our therapeutic journey together.  After the global recovery of COVID-19, I am now back working face-to-face in a welcoming, safe space in Mansfield (NG18) and Kirkby-in-Ashfield (NG17).  I am also continuing to offer online and telephone sessions.

Key details

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.
