About me

I am a person-centred and experiential psychotherapist/counsellor. I believe that any person is the expert in their own world and they have an inherent ability to grow into the person they want to be if they are provided with the right conditions. Too often we forget who we really are and get consumed with pleasing others and being what they want us to be. In working with you, I will try to understand you as an individual and create a non-judgemental space for us to work together to make sense of your world and the challenges within it. Feeling safe and able to talk about anything offers the opportunity to cope, grow and change in ways that you may otherwise have been unable to. My approach means that I do not analyse or advise you but we would work together to explore personal and relational difficulties in order for you to come to your own conclusions and find your own way forward.

I offer short and long term therapy for adults. I work clients with a variety of issues including trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, bereavement to name a few. I am based in Carrington, Nottingham. I offer face to face, video conference and telephone counselling. (Please note, access to my therapy room is via stairs, please consider this if you have mobility issues). 

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Masters in Person-centred and Experiential Psychotherapy from Staffordshire University.

I have extensive experience of working in the criminal justice system with a range of people who have had multiple disadvantages in life, leading to criminal behaviour. This, combined with my therapy experience working in services for teenagers and young adults, women, and vulnerable people with complex needs has provided me with a wealth of experience building relationships with a variety of clients from all walks of life.  I have worked with numerous issues including, but not limited to; anxiety. depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, bereavement, addiction and substance misuse.

Particular areas of interest for me are; the change process including what keeps us stuck from moving forward when we really want to; humour in therapy; encouraging men to access therapy, body acceptance; and use of popular culture (TV, books and films) in supporting reflection and learning about ourselves.
