Do you find yourself overwhelmed with anxiety and feel trapped or sad? Do you find yourself wanting to make change(s) in your life but lack the confidence and/or motivation to do so? Perhaps you are having difficulties in a relationship with a partner, a family member or at work, and feel unappreciated, undervalued and alone? I work with people just like you to eliminate anxiety, explore and address issues, and find solutions. I am a highly qualified, experienced counsellor, based in Nottingham, UK; I specialise in helping people to build self-esteem, find new, healthy ways to approach relationships, and feeling good again!
I believe that honesty, trust and confidentiality are vital precursors for any relationship and as such, I offer a caring, compassionate, modern & judgement-free approach to help you feel confident in working through any issue(s) that you are facing. I have over four years' experience, & I can help you to untangle the wires in your life, and move forward with clarity.
I am an Integrative therapist, which means I utilise a wide variety of interventions to enable you to figure out what is working for you and what isn't, as well as working through what may be holding you back from making useful changes; in order to take charge & feel whole again.
I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk about and explore the issues and challenges you are facing. I have had some of the best training available, and I have over 4 years of experience in a variety of settings in both private sector work and charitable organisations such as MIND.
I believe that relationship between therapist (myself) and client (you) is fundamental to your development, which is why the first session will be used to ensure that we can work together going forward. I have a private practice in Nottingham NG5. which has an off street car park as well as on street parking nearby. The location of my practice is also well served by public transport.
I am deeply aware of how daunting taking the first step can be; I invite you to contact me by phone or email so that you can have the opportunity to discuss what it is that you are seeking from therapy, ask any further questions you may have about me and/or the type of therapy I provide, or about counselling in general.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained for a number of years and I have had some of the best Psychotherapy training available, from the Internationally renowned Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute where I trained at Postgraduate Diploma Level.
I also have over 7 years experience in working with 'looked after' Young People, many of whom have experienced adverse and traumatic childhoods; as well as a vast amount of experience counselling people from a wide variety of backgrounds, races, religions, genders and sexual orientations.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I have spaces available throughout the week including some evenings.
