About me

Hello my name is Nettie

Life can be very overwhelming at times with unexpected challenges and feelings that we don't always know how to deal with or make sense of from our past or present. With my life experiences and 10 years in practice I feel I can offer you a safe & non-judgemental environment to explore a deeper understanding of what your going through.

I specialise in person centred & humanistic counselling. Person Centred Counselling is non directive allowing you the client to determine a way forward to learn how to trust in yourself to realise your own potential for a better life.

All counselling sessions are face to face and last for approx 50 minutes. I am able to offer flexible appointment times throughout the day and evening.  I offer short or long term counselling which is suited to your individual needs. I also offer couples counselling to help work through any difficulties you may be having. These sessions are approx. 1 hour 30 minutes, Due to covid 19 I am able to offer  counselling on the phone I hope this helps.  

I would encourage anyone who wishes to find out more about my service to please telephone the number listed, I will be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have. Thank you Best Wishes Nettie

Thank you Nettie

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
