About me

I offer psychotherapy and counselling for adults (over 16 years of age). I work with individuals, couples/intimate relationships and student/trainee therapists.

I am also a supervisor and offer individual or group supervision for therapists, non-therapists and organisations.

I usually work from a dedicated accessible therapy room in the centre of Long Eaton and can sometimes also offer online sessions where in-person attendance is  not possible.

 Following your enquiry I will offer you a free initial telephone consultation before deciding to meet for a session. I undertake a fuller assessment of your situation and needs in an initial session if you decide to take things forward. If you would rather have a bit more information about me before contacting me then please continue reading.

I work with you, in an open and relational way and hope to facilitate your trust in me and the process of therapy by being authentic and involved. Feeling safe in therapy is important as it enables you to be more who you are without the need for judgments or defences.  Sometimes we need to let our guard down so we can let the help and support we need in and attend fully to the issues underneath our personal symptoms, the 'stuckness' or crises in our lives or relationships. I can work with most issues and most people. 

I also work developmentally which means I believe that our past experiences, especially those in our early life, continue to influence us in the present. Sometimes this means remembering or talking together about painful events or things that have hurt you in the past and/or facing difficult feelings of shame, fear, anger or grief. I believe this can be healing and help us understand and potentially change unhelpful patterns we may have in our life.

As well as talking, I also use mindfulness, creativity, exploration of bodily experiences and emotions when I work with people. I am open to working outside and have experience of working therapeutically in nature or walk and talk therapy. I have an interest in eco-psychotherapy, spirituality and personal growth in long-term therapy and grief tending and ritual around loss.

There are many different reasons to come to therapy.  Something is most likely  impacting your sense of wellbeing or your relationship(s), your ability to cope with life and its stresses or you feel blocked and aren't flourishing or fulfilling your potential.  You may be anxious, grieving, have work issues, feel lonely, struggle with physical or mental health issues, disability, parenting or caring,  birth trauma, panic, stress, depression, fragile sense of self, lack of confidence or self-esteem, loss or bereavement, fertility, transitions, sudden change, addiction, trauma or childhood abuse. It is not possible to name all reasons and sometimes we don't know why but we need to talk to someone in a confidential space and we need a witness; for someone else to see us and and listen to us. I want to say that's OK.

If you are interested in supervision please email or call me to talk through your individual, group or organisational requirements.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
