Hi my name is Natalie. I am an experienced BACP accredited counsellor working in Nottingham city centre and in Ruddington.
I offer a friendly, safe and confidential space to enable you to work through any difficulties you may be experiencing. I work within the Humanistic person centered approach and I believe that given the right conditions, through therapy, positive changes can be made.
I offer counselling for all ages, individuals, couples, EAP, and group work. I work with both long and short term clients and evening and weekend appointments are now available.
I have extensive experience working with depression, mental and physical health problems, self harm and stress. However I specialise in issues of trauma and abuse. I also have experience and training in a wide range of areas as listed below.
My way of working
I work within the humanistic person centered approach. This means working at the clients pace and offering a safe, confidential and non judgmental space to allow you to work through any difficulties or life challenges that you may be experiencing.
This may be a difficult time for you and finding the right counsellor is essential to enable you to get the most out of your sessions. I offer a free initial telephone consultation and a £20, one off no obligation, initial session to see if we are able to work together. Please feel free to give me a call or contact me at email@example.com
