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)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
