Hello and welcome. It is normal to experience stages in life where it seems to make no sense, perhaps events feel overwhelming and life seems impossible to navigate. Alternatively relationships may be problematic or recurrent patterns of behaviour are negatively affecting everyday life. People find their way to therapy for many different reasons and it takes courage to make the decision.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, Psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and trainer with many years experience. My approach is to work alongside you, assisting you in making sense of your current difficulties and helping you to find clarity and a way to move forward. Coming from an Integrative approach means that I can draw from a range of therapeutic approaches. This enables me to engage with you in a way that will be most effective and tailored to best suit your individual needs. Psychotherapeutic sessions can be a space to talk through these themes. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment so different issues can be explored.
People seek therapy for different reasons. You may want to explore better ways of coping with old problems, or try to see different possibilities in your relationships, life or career. You may also be going through a difficult emotional time in your life, and facing these situations, alone, can be quite challenging. No issue is too big or too small; the issue is how you are feeling and knowing you want to change this. Some of the areas that I work include: depression, anxiety, stress, OCD, panic attacks, relationship problems, loss and bereavement, trauma, sexual abuse, rape, sex, sexuality, cultural issues, psychosomatic problems, eating disorders etc. The therapeutic relationship is key to helping change evolve and I believe that working together we can explore your experiences and work through the difficulties you are facing.
I offer one to one or couples counselling and psychotherapy to adults and young people from 16 years old.
seeing Stacey is the best decision I ever made. I have seen such a positive change in myself.
Stacey made me feel comfortable, safe and respected. A fantastic, non judgemental listener who works with you.
I feel happy and confident for the first time in my life! thank you.
I just wish everyone could see you because they are missing out. Thank you.
There is a lot of baggage that I no longer carry thanks to Stacey.
I didn't believe I could be helped, meeting you changed my life. Thank you for staying with me.

Before opening my private practice I spent 3 years providing therapeutic support for Cruse Bereavement Care. In this position I was responsible for assessment of clients before allocation to a counsellor and the research, writing and delivery of ongoing training to all workers who offered support of behalf of Cruse Bereavement Care. I was responsible for interviewing candidates who wished to join the organisation and delivered the Awareness in Bereavement Care course which each supporter is required to pass before working with clients.
I also spent 3 years working for Nottinghamshire Woman's Aid. Along with providing counselling I was also responsible for assessments and delivery of the Freedom Programme to service users.

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).
