If you are not sure what to expect from counselling then I am here to help you make sense of it all. If things like self-doubt, stress or anxiety have been building up inside you, counselling can be a place for you to release that pressure, a place where I can guide you safely as you begin to unravel your problems. It is somewhere to feel completely accepted for who you are, listened to and understood, a place you can show any emotion and never be judged. I currently work with clients experiencing many issues such as anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, relationship issues and unprocessed historical trauma. If you would like to find out more about counselling with me, you can contact me to arrange a free phone consultation.
What I can help with:
Abuse, Anxiety, Anger, Childhood Trauma, Depression, Difficult Memories, Loss, Stress, Relationship Issues, Self-harm, Sexual Abuse, Feeling Sad.
I offer both long and short-term counselling. I offer face to face counselling in a bright and airy summerhouse in my garden and I also offer counselling sessions online, using the Zoom platform.
You can call or message me now to arrange your free 30-minute consultation and decide whether you would like to book a session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am degree educated (Fine Art at Coventry University) and hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling awarded by the CPCAB. My independent counselling practice, Cherry Trees Counselling, is based in Nottingham. I have also been a volunteer counsellor at ISAS, a charity offering counselling to survivors of incest and sexual abuse since 2019. I am committed to continuing professional development and have additional training in suicide prevention, safeguarding and child protection, attachment, forced marriage and grooming awareness, adverse childhood experiences and trauma, childhood incest and sexual abuse. I am also a registered member of the 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.

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).
