About me

Hello, my name is Kelly and I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist (BACP and UKCP registered) working in the West Bridgford area of Nottingham and Oldbury area of Birmingham. I have a MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. I tend to work short and long-term with client's who are experiencing a variety of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship issues, identity issues, eating disorder, self-harm, PTSD, bereavement and loss and those who have experienced trauma/abuse. I have been working with clients for the past six years and have experience working for a Birmingham Charity, Cedar Counselling and now have a private practice in the Nottingham and Birmingham areas.

I am passionate about providing a safe, non-judgmental space to explore any issues or difficulties you may be having. Often, we can feel low, lack motivation or feel stuck and find ourselves repeating the same patterns in relationships. By exploring this together it is possible to process and unblock feelings, explore significant life events and enable you to live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

If you would like to book an initial assessment to see if we could work together, please do get in touch.

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
