About me

Hello and welcome to the Inner Smile Anxiety Clinic.

I offer Online, and telephone sessions, and also face to face at The Magnolia Therapy Centre and at Ransom Wood Business Park in Mansfield

I guess you are ready to live a life without anxiety.  Well sadly that's not possible as we need to feel afraid sometimes but certainly not in everyday situations. 

It's suprising how quickly you can feel less anxious just by offloading your worries. I offer you a safe and non judgemental space to do just that. 

How often do you feel really heard and understood?

Living with anxiety is pretty miserable, and can hold you back from doing so much, I know.

You could be feeling anxious for many reasons,  childhood trauma,  a relationship breakup, a job loss or redundancy,  the menopause  the list goes on....

Are you sick of missing out because of your anxiety? Does it feel like you are living behind bars, just waiting for someone to free you? I can free you?

Maybe you do not want to miss out on any more opportunities to live life to the full and enjoy doing so.

The good news is that things can change pretty quickly when we start working together. I work in a way that is unlike most other Counsellors due to previous training in working with anxiety, which we did not learn in Counselling training. I can teach you relaxation techniques, and use guided visualisations to help you experience deep calm.

We can work in a short term way typically 8 - 10 sessions. We may need more sessions if you want to work of the deeper issues causing the anxiety, which can be many. 

I have 20 year experience working with clients. I am a Psychotherapist, Lifecoach, Hypnotherapist, and Stress Management therapist. 

I have supported many clients with anxiety, fears, phobias, lack of confidence, and sense of direction.

If you have had enough and are ready to take back control, then contact me to arrange a chat and see how I can help you.

Therapy can help you see the world and yourself from a different perspective and once you start exploring this your outlook on life can change pretty quickly. Your best interests are always my prime consideration. 

As we discuss your issues, I can offer insights that you may find helpful and which may give you a new perspective. I may also challenge your thinking to allow you to consider if these thought patterns are helpful to you or are part of the problem.

As part of our work together we may also look at your goals, values, beliefs and dreams & how these might help you to live a better future. For me, this is what the therapy is all about. I will provide a confidential, supportive and open space which allows you to understand and express the parts of you that you may not have considered before.

The focus of all this is on healing, growth & change. So if you feel that you are ready for change, than I will be happy to support you in making those changes, soo you start enjoying life.

You don't have to accept that you will always feel this way. I can guarantee you will not always feel this way and I can help you to start feeling much better real soon.

I can help and support you to find your freedom from feelings of intense anxiety, fear, low self esteem, and lack of direction. 

“We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.” – Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person

Currently I am offering telephone and online counselling via Zoom or Whatsapp, so we can work together wherever you are. When it is safe to do so and the government guidelines allow, face to face sessions with resume, based in Mapperley Park.

Member organisations


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.
