About me

I am currently offering counselling and psychotherapy face-to-face and online.

I am an experienced psychotherapist and clinical supervisor based in Nottingham, where I provide psychotherapy and counselling to adults and young people (aged 16 upwards) - working with individuals and couples. I also offer academic support/consultation to people completing qualifications up to Master's level in Person-centred and/or Experiential Psychotherapy/Counselling. My aim is to offer clients a warm and accepting space where they can learn self-compassion, self-awareness and self-acceptance.                     

I decided to re-train as a psychotherapist, following a long and rewarding career as a social worker. The main theoretical approaches I use when working with clients are person-centred and experiential psychotherapy and EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing).  I have a particular interest in emotion-focused therapy, which is one of the modalities within the person-centred and experiential field.    

My passion for these modalities began following my own experience as a client.  My own life has been rich and insightful, allowing me to realise that it is normal for people to encounter difficulties in their lives, at some point.  During these times, intervention in the form of counselling/psychotherapy can create movement for clients.  I have a strong belief in people’s individual capacity to implement the necessary changes in their lives, during times of anxiety, stress and depression, if the right support is in place.

I create work-life balance by taking time to do some of the things I love, like going to galleries, running, following sport, practising yoga, reading, watching films, travelling, listening to music and walking in the countryside.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
