About us

About us

Building unique relationships to support and enable you through change, recovery, and growth.

Therapy Nottingham is a pioneering Integrative Psychotherapy service in Nottingham.

Why do people come to therapy?

People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons. Psychotherapy can help manage and address a wide range of emotional issues, difficulties and experiences. It’s not about being “crazy” or “mad”, but it is about making changes – both in your life, and in how you feel.

Psychotherapy comes under the broad heading of ‘talking therapies’. By talking about and exploring the things that you have experienced, how you are feeling, and the thoughts you are having, you are then able to make positive changes. It’s not possible for us to go back in time and change what has already happened, but it is possible to reduce or remove the negative impact that those things may still be having on you now.

Examples of the kinds of things people come to therapy for include:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Workplace problems
  • Family difficulties
  • Issues relating to sexuality and identity
  • Knowing that things ‘just don’t feel right’

People also choose to come to therapy having experienced significant or difficult events, for example:

  • Bereavement
  • Divorce or separation
  • Sexual abuse or assault
  • Harassment
  • Bullying

Whatever apparent similarities there may be, your individual experience is inevitably unique. This means that your experience of coming to therapy will also be unique.

What you can expect

You can expect your psychotherapist to:

  • provide a safe, confidential place, where you can talk about yourself and your life, which may be painful or confusing and may make you feel uncomfortable, angry or unhappy
  • give you the opportunity to think and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often can’t do with family and friends
  • offer a place and time which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you
  • listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others
  • accept the way you are without judging you
  • help you to make the changes you would like to happen
  • work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship with you so that we can work well together
  • understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express your feelings
  • work with you towards improving your well being

Your psychotherapist will not:

  • offer to ‘cure’ you
  • judge you
  • make decisions for you
  • take advantage of you
  • spend time talking about their problems inappropriately

Video / online psychotherapy sessions

We believe that Integrative psychotherapy has the greatest potential as an in-person service, which is our primary provision. This is not to say that working online can not be effective, but we recognise the significant limitation placed on a relational experience by working this way.

In some instances, it may not be possible for in-person sessions to take place (for example, due to geography, or Covid restrictions) and so working online remains an option that you can discuss either through your referral or with your therapist.

Ethical practice

All psychotherapists and supervisors at Therapy Nottingham work within the professional and ethical guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and/or the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). You can read more about these expectations on the respective websites.

Training, qualifications & experience

All of the psychotherapists working at Therapy Nottingham are trained to at least degree level, and have extensive knowledge and experience.  You can find more information about individual psychotherapists on their page on our website.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
