About me and my therapy practice
I’m a qualified Counsellor with a wide range of experience at multiple charities, the NHS, relate, and in private practice. I provide 1:1 counselling based Nottingham City Centre and Sherwood. I have a masters in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling & Psychotherapy Practice.
I am an open minded and down to earth person who deeply values the positive implications that therapy can have on a person's life.
I believe strongly in the potential for growth and learning from being in therapy, as I myself have first hand experience in benefiting from being a client.
What can counselling offer you:
Being a client in the therapy process can give you an opportunity to explore areas that are troubling for you. A client who needs help with anger, who feels low and has been feeling like it for a while, stressed at work, wishes they could stop being so anxious, feels guilty about a termination, has grief to process, relationship issues, suffering from an accident, gambling issues, or cannot decide whether to go through with a wedding. In the counselling sessions, I offer a safe and confidential therapeutic space to enable you to explore your issues and difficulties by talking. These may consist of talking about life experiences that are from the past and present. By talking through these events this could involve discussing your emotions and feelings, as well as relationships, thoughts and behaviours.
I will endeavour to work with you in a therapeutic relationship which helps and supports you to deal with difficult feelings and thought patterns. I can assist you in developing helpful coping strategies. I am willing to work with you based on any difficulties that you are experiencing which are having an impact on your identity, confidence, and day to day life.
Some of your difficulties might involve dealing with anger, anxiety, and stress issues. Discussing the personal relationships that you have whether this revolves around a partner, family member, work related relationship or an alternative relationship. You may be experiencing difficulties with having present or past experiences of abuse; this could be emotional, physical, or sexual. You may be experiencing loss and bereavement. I offer both long and short-term counselling; these sessions are available and can occur in the day or evening time.
The potential benefits of counselling:
- Enhance self-esteem and encourage self-worth.
- Empower and enhance potential for change.
- Help you gain more understanding of what causes you distress.
- Assist you in identifying what causes your difficulties.
- Help develop a better perception on life.
- Develop better relationships and interactions.
- Help by providing personal knowledge into skills.
