About me

I work with all age groups from my practice in Wollaton and Wilford. I work on a one to one basis to help you develop a clearer understanding of yourself and to raise awareness of your options. Our work will be tailored around your needs as we are all unique individuals who experience life differently. You may be repeating patterns that affect your life. I can provide a welcoming environment for you to share your feelings, hopes and fears.

Today, more and more people struggle at some point in their lives to cope with growing pressures around them. I can provide an opportunity for you talk, confidentially, about emotional difficulties such as general anxiety, relationship issues, feeling sad, depression and family issues.

For many people there may be no opportunity to talk about their difficult issue or worries with someone close to them. It can help to speak to someone independent and unbiased when these uncomfortable and difficult feelings begin to affect your everyday life and prevent you from moving forward.

I provide a confidential and collaborative environment where we can gently explore the thoughts and feelings affecting your life.  By working together in this way, you can start to see the triggers or patterns which are slowing down your progress. I will work to your pace and direction to gently explore difficult issues to find solutions for a more rewarding future.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have found counselling to be of particular benefit for those suffering from everyday anxiety, relationship issues, feeling sad, depression and family issues.

I have a personal interest in bi-cultural issues relating to identity and the sense of self. I understand the challenges of living, adapting and integrating into a culture that may be unfamiliar and different to one's heritage.

Further information

What to expect from your sessions.

Here are a few frequently asked questions which you may find helpful.

What happens at the Introductory Session

For new Clients, I offer a FREE, 30 minutes session to help you get a feel for how we might work together and an opportunity for you to ask questions.

What to expect at the First Session

During the first session, I will take a few personal details from you, namely, your contact telephone/mobile number, any medication you may be taking and some history of your general health and wellbeing.  This part of the session is not designed to take very long.  Once this is over, you will have the time and space to discuss how you come to be here and what you might be looking for in the sessions and how I might help you in reaching your goals.

Once the session ends, I will give you a Contract and details of how I handle your personal data.  You will have the opportunity to take these home to read and return them, signed, if you are happy with the details.  If not, we can discuss this at the next session.

Frequency of Sessions

At our first session, we will discuss how often you would like your sessions.  Some clients find weekly sessions establish a pace that works for them, whilst others prefer sessions every two weeks.

How long are the Sessions

Each session runs for 60 minutes.

How do I pay the fee?

My fee is £50 per session.  Payment is made at each session or via BACS just before the session.  Please ask for payment details if you choose to pay via BACS.

Follow-up Sessions

We can arrange the date of a follow-up session at the end of each session.

What happens if I can't make it to a session?

If you are unable to attend a session, you can notify me via my mobile number - either calling and leaving a message or via an SMS.

I kindly request that 48 hours notice is given for a session which cannot be attended, otherwise the full fee will be required.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
