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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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 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.
