Central Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust
Ashfield Community Hospital
Does it feel like your head is just above water? Are you struggling to cope with problems?
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in north Nottinghamshire, who has experience in working with adults within the voluntary and health sector. With specific presenting issues around substance misuse, sexual and domestic abuse / violence.
Specialising in abuse I am familiar with working within risk management and the impact this type of trauma can have. Even after the abuse has ended and the risk may have been reduced significantly, survivors are then left with trying to make sense of their experience. I have experience with assisting this healing process, to help survivors go on to live a fulfilled life beyond abuse.
My practice is based within the Ashfield Health Village, which offers free parking and is easy to access by public transport.
I will offer a holistic approach when working with you as my belief is that we are all complex individuals and there is no 'one size fits all'. At times, life can get tough for many of us and therapy can be a positive decision to make.
With this in mind, I will draw on other theories to suit your needs and way of interacting. Fundamentally you will find my approach is based on building a warm, respectful and trusting relationship that feels safe and secure. You will have the space to explore how you are feeling without judgment and with acceptance.
I cannot offer advice, however my aim and hope is that by working together I can facilitate your emotional development, helping you to make sense of who you are and what choices you would like to make in order to live a fulfilled life.
Our first session is an opportunity to find out if I'm the right therapist for you. I can tell you more about my values and beliefs and establish what you would like to achieve from our session, what is your goal?
This will help us to work out if short or long term work would be right for you.
If I felt that I could not provide you with the support you needed then I would sign post you to another therapist and/or agencies.
