About me

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.

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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
