I am an experienced relationship therapist at Relate Nottinghamshire and I work with private clients. I specialise in relationship issues - I work with couples, families and individuals.
If you are experiencing difficulties, feeling confused or stuck and not sure how to change or move forward in yourself and/or in your relationships, then perhaps counselling is going to help you.
I offer a safe and supportive space in which you can reflect on what is going on in your life and help you understand yourself and your relationships more clearly and work towards any changes you would like to make.
I offer a non-judgemental, supportive stance and I will always work hard to provide a service that suits the client and that is both ethical and compassionate.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified with an MA (Distinction) in Relationship Therapy whilst working for Relate Lincolnshire and Relate Nottinghamshire. In addition, I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy (Distinction).
I am committed to ongoing professional development and continue to attend courses to keep my practice up to date. Courses undertaken include: Working with Adults and Young People with Asperger’s, Child Protection and Safeguarding, Mental Health Awareness, Working with Domestic Violence and Abuse, Working with Sex Addiction, Working with Transgender clients.
I am an integrative therapist which means I combine elements of different therapeutic theories. My practice is mostly based on two key approaches: family therapy (how we interact with others) and psychodynamic theory (our inner thoughts and beliefs from childhood to the present). I use techniques from other theories such as Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. The tools and techniques I draw on depend on the client’s presenting problems and our agreed goals for therapy.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
