About me

I am a qualified Person Centred / Humanistic Psychotherapist. I practise in Nottingham (NG4), Neitherfield and Loughborough (LE12). I am able to offer short term (12 - 16 Session) or longer term based on individuals needs (1 -2 years)

At the core of my practise is to establish a warm therapeutic working relationship with you, which can offer opportunities for change and for you to trust your own judgement and feel empowered by your own autonomy.I feel I can offer a safe and confidential environment for you to be yourself and not feel judged or overpowered. By working together on your journey of self - discovery, I hope you feel compassion, empathy and a real genuineness from me to encourage the changes you want to embrace in your own life to occur.

I have parking at both premisies. If you need help or advice about my service please get in touch.
