About me

Life can be tough going at times, and we all occasionally need a little help and support along the way. Counselling sessions are an opportunity for you to receive that help and support from a trained and qualified professional – and any sessions you choose to have with me will be your chance to talk through your difficulties, challenges and personal issues in a relaxed, friendly and easy-going way (always in total confidence). These periods of conversation will be with a view to us finding positive pathways forward for you that will enable you to change your life for the better.

I am approachable and open, with plenty of life experience behind me. It was always my ambition to work in a field were I could make a positive difference to people’s lives and, as a counsellor, it's my aim to support and facilitate you through your challenges and personal growth. I have a commitment to putting your best interests at heart. My career before training as a therapist covered a wide range of roles that required sensitivity, discretion, compassion, acceptance, and resilience to difficulty – and since qualifying as a Counsellor I have acquired several years of experience in helping and supporting a wide range of clients (both women and men) in practical ways.

About me

After having a significant and life changing experience of counselling myself in 2008, I began a journey of self-development that eventually brought me to the point of becoming a counsellor myself – and I feel that I have now found a role in life that I truly thrive in. I have over four year's experience in the Mental Health field working with adults of all ages. My experience as a counsellor includes working with many instances of: depression; low self-esteem; significant personal dilemmas; childhood trauma; abuse and historic abuse; bereavement, grief and loss; physical disabilities; chronic illness; intrusive thoughts; suicidal thoughts; cases were “things just don't feel right” for a client, or they are feeling profoundly sad; numbness and “numbing out”; difficulties coping with change; and, of course, the considerable general stresses and strains of modern living.

My professional background also extends to mindfulness (and the use of mindfulness in counselling). This can sometimes be a helpful tool as mindfulness focuses on what is felt in the body in the present moment – so giving an easy and tangible way to access emotions and feelings, which can otherwise be difficult to identify and describe. To build on this I am currently undertaking a Masters Degree in Mindfulness and Compassion.

Where I Work

I offer face-to-face counselling sessions that take place in the heart of the Nottingham city centre, within a popular health and wellbeing centre that has a bright, contemporary interior and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. (Arriving and leaving the centre also offers complete anonymity.) In addition, I also offer sessions by Skype.

What to Expect from Counselling

During our sessions together we will work to identify and achieve your personal aims for therapy. I will take the time to listen and work with the issues that are causing you distress, and we will also explore your coping strategies and your personal patterns.

It is important to understand that therapy is not a magic wand, and that therapy is a two way process that requires participation and investment from both client and therapist.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you, and I invite you to get in touch and start your journey to greater peace, contentment and happiness.
