About me

Zoom, walk and talk, and telephone appointments available - unable to offer face to face appointments at present.

Hello, I am an experienced and extensively trained integrative psychotherapist/counsellor (humanistic/relational/spiritual); couples therapist; Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner; psychoeducation information provider, and holistic well-being coach.

I offer a free consultation via zoom or telephone, and I work with a wide range of approaches.  For more information about the way I work please see www.counsellingnottinghamservices.co.uk.

My appointments are available on a weekly or flexible basis, Monday pm - Friday am.

I work in a wide range of areas and specialise in anxiety, emotions, trauma, relationships, understanding human behaviour and empowerment for change.  I am informed by the significance of childhood experiences and learning, the personality, the subconscious, emotions, thoughts, and the nervous system towards making long term changes.

I integrate many modalities/approaches including:

person-centred, gestalt, transactional analysis, psychodynamic, internal family systems, inner child work, compassion focussed, cbt, psychoeducation, emotional freedom technique (tapping), walk and talk therapy, mind management, mindfulness, body awareness, the nervous system/polyvagal theory, holistic health, energy/spirit, and life coaching.

I am compassionate, sincere, and I respect others' beliefs, and differences. I am proactive and passionate about supporting anyone to achieve a growth mindset, positive change, and well-being.

I can help you address:

- present and past issues

- emotional difficulties and distress

- working with the nervous system

- confusion, uncertainty, and co-dependency

- unhelpful thinking, habits, and negativity

- self-sabotage and inner conflict

- repeating negative patterns

I can help you achieve:

- increased self-awareness and self-understanding

- improved thinking, feeling, and behaviours,

- improved emotional and physical health and well-being

- increased sense of calm and peace

- healthy coping strategies, and self-care

- personal growth, and self-realisation

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.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
