About me

I am an experienced qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor, working in Private practice and within the NHS for over 12 years.

I offer Individual counselling and Psychotherapy, Couples Counselling, EAP services, Clinical Supervision and Group Therapy.

You may be considering counselling or psychotherapy for a wide range of issues.
 
I have significant experience of working with a wide range of clients. Ages range from teens to older adults. I have worked with people experiencing a range of issues -

Relationship issues; anxiety including panic disorders and depression; post natal depression; work problems; stress; loss and bereavement; trauma and abuse; health problems; issues relating to anger (anger management); sexual difficulties; and personal development are some examples.

I am trained and have considerable experience in working with psychiatric diagnosis, including personality disorders such as Borderline Personality disorder/EUPD, Bi-polar/Manic depression, Avoidant Personality Disorder for example.

As an Integrative Psychotherapist I am able to offer individuals and couples both short and long term psychotherapy and counselling.

Currently working in person and online.  Accepting new referrals

I am able to provide personal therapy and couples counselling from a choice of two locations, Derby and Beeston near Nottingham. I can offer depending on availability, daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments.

I offer a safe and confidential ‘space’ where individuals can feel free to explore their personal experiences without feeling judged.

Clinical Supervision

I provide clinical supervision

Employment Assistance Programme (EAP)

I provide counselling for companies and their employees, which is typically work related, but can be for other reasons also.  My industry experience can have particular relevance here (see Organisational experience).

National Health Service (NHS)

Previous working within NHS primary care, working with people from a
diverse range of backgrounds with different needs. GP referrals taken.

I have previously worked at an NHS Hospital and within a GP practice where I provided both long term and short term Counselling and Psychotherapy.


I have previously worked as a therapist within a youth service (local government).

Organisational experience

Before training and practising as a psychotherapist, I spent 21 years working in industry, both in the private and public sectors. I held several different posts, from engineering through to management. This included mentoring, leading and supporting staff. This has given me good insight into to working lives and how the dynamics of work can influence and affect individuals both professionally and personally. I have also performed roles influencing organisational change.

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling is for issues and difficulties that can be attended to with a time limited, focused therapy.  Psychotherapy is for issues that require a longer term in-depth therapy.

The aim of counselling and psychotherapy can be different for each individual, some may be experiencing distress and need support. Some may need to make sense of something they are or have been going through, perhaps a significant life event. One may seek greater self-understanding & inner contentment.

If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy, I believe it is important to choose a therapist who feels right for you and one that you can begin to feel comfortable with. With this in mind I offer a reduced cost initial meeting, where we have the opportunity to meet and you can ask any questions you may have.  This is also a time for a brief assessment of what our work may entail.

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.

UKCP
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.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
