My name is Simon Wainwright, I am a Humanistic, Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Nottingham.
My focus is on finding the right way forward for you, I work flexibly using a number of different approaches according to the needs of clients.
I offer therapy either online ( via Zoom) over the telephone or in person based in the Sherwood area of Nottingham . I am happy to work in whatever way suits you best and happy to review / change how we work according to your feelings and needs.
This begins with a free 30 minute meeting with no obligation. Just a chance to talk and meet and see if you wish to work together. Please just call me to arrange or you can also get in touch via email. I will be in touch to answer your query within 24hrs as I realise taking this first step can be a difficult one.
I am flexible around times and days although I don't currently work weekends I can work with you at times that suit you during the week, whether this is daytimes or evenings.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
