About me

At the core of my approach is the belief that you are the expert of your own experience. Consequently, only you can truly determine what choices are best for you moment-to-moment. In my practice, judgement is absent, and I refrain from directing the topics of discussion. Instead, I offer support through active listening and empathising with any difficulties you encounter while processing your lived experience. This collaborative approach enables you to gain insights and discover your own solutions. Together we will establish a safe and trustworthy therapeutic relationship where you can freely express yourself, work towards the change you desire, cultivate personal growth, and nurture your sense of well-being.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully accredited member of UKCP and my credentials include a BA Joint Hons in English and Theology and an MSc in Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy. I trained as a therapist at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham and have experience working in various counselling organisations in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Currently I am in private practice and a volunteer in the listening service team that supports the Nottinghamshire Police Force.
