Welcome! Thank you for taking a look at my website. I’ve outlined below all the different services I offer. I hope you will find what you are looking for. If there’s anything else you want to know please contact me by phone or email.
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working in Nottingham. I provide short or long term therapy in a safe and non-judgemental space. I trained in person-centred/humanistic therapy and have since studied trauma and abuse as well as working with anger and shame. I have worked in a local voluntary sector organisation supporting survivors of abuse and within the NHS counselling individuals with anxiety and depression. I am an accredited member of BACP and a trained counselling supervisor. I previously worked in careers work and have extensive experience in designing and delivering training, CPD and personal development workshops in both careers and psychotherapy. I am fascinated by how trauma impacts the brain and affects our psychological well-being but also by the changes that therapy and mindfulness can bring about.
Counselling/Psychotherapy in Nottingham
I provide counselling with an emphasis on supporting you to a greater understanding of yourself and your problems and enabling you to find solutions and ways to cope. As a counsellor I will provide a safe, confidential and supportive environment in which you can work on your difficulties.
Short-term or longer therapy
I have experience of counselling individuals for time limited therapy of 6 or 8 sessions, and of working over longer periods of 3 or 4 months or with some for several years. It all depends on you as an individual and what you are looking to achieve, on what you need to work on and how much you want to invest. I will happily discuss this with you and we can work together to see what is going to help you.

Supervision in Nottingham
I have more than 4 years experience of providing clinical supervision to qualified and volunteer counsellors. I hold a Certificate in Person-Centred supervision.

I enjoy building a supportive supervisory relationship in which the counsellor can reflect upon their practice and develop their skills and experience.
