About me

We all experience difficulties in our lives and quite often are able to overcome them without the help of a counsellor. Sometimes, however, the difficulties we face may leave us confused, unfulfilled or unable to see a way forward.

Counselling can help us to understand our unique selves and make sense of our individual circumstances. Within a non-judgemental, accepting, empathic environment, we may feel empowered to take control of our lives and discover more effective and fulfilling ways of coping.

My Counselling Approach

I am a qualified humanistic counsellor, offering an integrative approach to support the individual needs of my clients. I am grounded in the person-centred approach but may also introduce solution focused or creative techniques if considered helpful.

I offer face to face counselling, both short and long term.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked for 15yrs within the NHS as a qualified nurse and then for 11yrs as a manager in a multimedia training college. These experiences brought me in touch with people from all walks of life and I gained a good insight into the types of problems and situations that may require support in the counselling environment.

My Counselling Experience

As a counsellor I have gained experience in working with both adults and children with a wide range of issues.
I was a volunteer for 2yrs with Place2Be, working with children in several Nottingham primary schools.
I also worked at Counselling Xtra where I gained 3yrs experience counselling adults, both long and short term.

My Current Work

I work in private practice with adults (from aged 18yrs) both short and long term.

I provide EAP face to face counselling in association with an occupational health company.

I provide personal therapy for counselling students.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

My Counselling Room

My counselling room is a private, comfortable log cabin situated in my garden in a quiet residential area of Sherwood. It can be easily accessed through a gate next to my house and there are also separate toilet facilities. It is a five minute walk from two main Nottingham city centre bus routes. Roadside parking is also available.

I offer flexible appointment times from Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings.

If you are considering counselling, please call me for a no obligation chat. We can discuss how I may support your needs so you can decide whether you feel it is right for you.

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.

Accessibility

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.
