About me

I'm focused on helping you reach your goals. I can't do the work for you but as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Life Coach, I aim to help you understand yourself more clearly.

Sometimes life just seems to get in the way of progress on the way to where you want to be.

Working with you in a safe, confidential environment towards more awareness, knowledge, acceptance and self-esteem often helps clients maximise their own potential.

I offer regular weekly appointments, after an initial discussion by phone, for short or longer term work depending on what you have the space for. My counselling room is on the ground floor and ample parking is available right outside and I'm 10 minutes from the nearest bus stop.

​Whether you feel the need to de-clutter your mind, are working through distress or need help with your direction, give me a call. I look forward to working with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have had some of the best training available in Counselling and Psychotherapy and have been working with Coaching clients for over a decade. I studied for my degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Institute in Nottingham while working for MIND where I continue to volunteer as a Counsellor and Board Trustee. I also have a regular practice at Nottingham Trent University each week and enjoy working with a diversity and variety of clients young and old.

Many clients that I work with need help with Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Depression. I would like to help you if you have been thinking or saying any of the following:

  • I am so stressed at work...
  • I just wish I could stop feeling so anxious...
  • My relationship isn't working and I don't know what to do...
  • I feel really low and have been feeling like this for too long...
  • Will I ever get over this grief?

I have a broad range of experience including working with the Carers Federation where I worked to provide counselling to those caring for their loved ones suffering with dementia, .

I have worked with people with:

  • Anxiety
  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Relationship issues
  • Feeling sad
  • Family issues
  • Separation and divorce
  • Affairs and betrayals
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Stress
  • Bipolar disorder / Manic depression
  • and many other issues

Complementing my Counselling and Psychotherapy practice I am a qualified Coach through the Chartered Management Institute. My practice centres on personal development helping individuals grow their awareness about what they want out of work and life, looking for new direction, motivation and enthusiasm.

I have worked with people in developmental roles for most of my life. In the last 20 years I have focussed more on personal development, working across different industries and organisations. I am also qualified to use psychometric assessment tools used in business and in the healthcare sector.
