About me

Hello and welcome to Friar Gate Counselling & Psychotherapy, an affordable, empathic, caring and confidential counselling and psychotherapy service where positive outcomes can be explored.

Located at 32 Friar Gate, in Derby's professional quarter, right next to The Friar Gate Bridge, an iconic landmark amongst the thriving bustle of up market restaurants, coffee shops and diverse enterprise.

As an integrative counsellor, I aim to provide a professional, welcoming, confidential and non-judgmental service with the focus being on each individual's unique therapeutic needs. I provide a private counselling service, for short term crisis intervention, time-limited or open-ended therapy depending on the client's needs and their situation.

Through the therapeutic relationship, I will aim to help you discover and explore new ways of approaching life – ways which are less compromised by previous behavioural patterns which have contributed to your ability to cope and function in the present. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Code of Ethics.

I am Miricia, an experienced, fully qualified BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I have many years' experience in the mental health field along with formal training that provides me with a solid foundation to practice as an integrative counsellor. I have worked in private practise, businesses, charities and schools, with adults and children.

In addition to my private practice I have experience in various mental health settings, having worked in the mental health field for the NHS in London, and as a counsellor for various employee assistance programmes, community counselling services and as a voluntary counsellor and referral officer in South Africa.

I also have diverse experience of working with clients with enduring mental health issues and working with clients from different cultures and all walks of life. I can offer you a caring and confidential service where you can explore positive solutions that are right for you and your situation.
