About me

How can therapy help?

You may be experiencing difficulties in life, such as: anxiety; low confidence; relationship problems; stress at home or work. I offer a safe space in which you can explore such issues. All sessions are confidential and non-judgemental. I will support you as you consider your options and decide on your next steps.

I believe that counselling and therapy can enable us to make sense of current difficulties and find ways of moving forward in life.

At an initial meeting we will have the opportunity to discuss what is bringing you to therapy along with any hopes and expectations you may have.

Who am I?

I am UKCP registered and have been providing counselling and psychotherapy for individuals over the past twenty years.  During this time I have worked in the voluntary sector and in private practice. 

I currently work with adults of all ages. Through counselling and psychotherapy new ways of dealing with personal and relationship issues can be explored. 

I work with adults on a short or long-term basis and am based in West Bridgford, which has a regular bus service.

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.
