About me

Often we hide who we truly are. We construct layers upon layers of who we think we should be, only to realise we have forgotten who we truly are. Our environment and experiences influence our decisions and the defences we construct, until we lose sense of self. Therapy is a form of self-care. A way to look at all of the constructs we have built up. In a non-judgemental way.

Self-punishment can manifest in so many ways in our lives. Anxiety can be a way for us to measure that something isn't quite right, but it can be debilitating and scary. If you need help please get in contact and take the first step to putting yourself first.

Sessions can be conducted online via zoom. There is also an option to meet with me face to face for sessions, although this will attract an additional charge for room hire. In your first session we will have an informal individualised chat about what brought you to me and how I can help you to help yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified in person-centred therapy I have been working in Nottingham for over 8 Years and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

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.
