About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Nettie and welcome to my practice called My Safe Space Therapy. I'm a fully qualified psycho-therapeutic counsellor with over 9 years experience. I'm a trauma-informed counsellor and I work in an integrative way. Based on my clients' needs, I draw on different counselling theories, such as humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT (and its derivatives). I may also do inner child work, use sand play and props, e.g. stones and shells, Playdoh and other sensory toys to support you. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I abide by its Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals.

Practice description

My counselling practice offers a specialised service in: trauma caused by sexual abuse and rape and domestic abuse and; issues around weight management. My practice is also neuro-affirming. I offer walk and talk therapy if you prefer to work somewhere different. I’m bilingual having been brought up abroad and my background is interpreting and translating and teaching English as a foreign language.

I offer a warm, emphatic, non-judgemental, accepting and trusting safe space where you can tell me your story and we can explore what is bothering or concerning you. Together we can find ways to relieve the pain and discomfort and rediscover your resilience and inner strength.

My first session

I always offer a free 15/20 minute chat to enable you to ask me questions to see if you feel happy to start therapy with me. Once you've agreed that you want to start, we set a start date and I'll email you details of where I practise and I also add some information about what will happen in the first session. Part of the first session, will be dedicated to going through a working agreement and once you're happy with it, you sign a copy for yourself and one for me, plus I'll ask you to read and sign a privacy policy of which we'll both keep a copy. We'll then go through an assessment which comprises of some personal details, any mental health and/or physical problems, any medication you're on, any diagnoses, etc. This enables me to learn a little bit more about you and  helps me to start building a bit of a picture.
