About me

I am a highly qualified, experienced counsellor, based in Nottingham. I am experienced in working with a broad range of issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Low Self-Esteem, Sadness, Loss, Relationship Issues, OCD, Anger, Feeling Lost, Domestic Violence, Trauma, Sexual Violence, Abuse and identity. This list is by no means exhaustive, so please do enquire if you have further questions. I offer individual Short-Term and Longer-Term Therapy, both face to face and online.

As we journey through life, it is not uncommon for us to feel lost, stuck, anxious and/or depressed. This can be due to past experiences that continue to impact us, the demands that modern life places upon us, or a mixture of both.

I am an Integrative therapist, which means I utilise a wide variety of interventions to facilitate an exploration of you that is useful for exploring whatever it is that you may be facing. If you are seeking therapy, the chances are you may be feeling vulnerable and are experiencing a challenging time in your life.  As an experienced and empathetic therapist with a modern approach, I am well suited to help you process what you are experiencing, and help you untangle the wires of your experience in order to help you make sense of things.

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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
