About me and my therapy practice

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to browse my profile.

In light of COVID-19 I am offering therapy sessions via telephone and safe video platforms including Skype and Zoom. I feel it is really important that clients can continue to access therapy by alternative modern day technologies.

From my therapy service you can expect a safe, non-judgmental space to talk about difficulties along with consistently high standards of care, professionalism and confidentiality. I have a wealth of experience as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for over 17 years within a wide range of health care settings including Nottinghamshire Healthcare in both Secondary and Primary Care, Improving Access to Psychological Therapy services (IAPT), Employee Assistance Programmes, MIND, University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. I am a dual trained accredited Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. I am an experienced Clinical Supervisor in Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. 

I understand how important it is to feel at ease and comfortable talking to a therapist and appreciate the courage it takes to seek support. I can offer a safe and confidential space to share personal problems, difficult emotions and feelings that you may not want to talk to other people in your life about. Sometimes it helps to talk to a therapist who can be completely impartial and without worrying or holding back for fear of upsetting or burdening close family or friends. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is of paramount importance, research has consistently shown evidence that the relationship is an essential contributory factor to positive therapeutic outcomes across all different types of therapy delivered.

My first session

At our initial consultation an assessment is carried out to ensure that Counselling/CBT is going to be the most suitable type of support for you.  The first appointment is more of an information gathering session and to determine the main problem your experiencing and what you hope to gain from therapy.  Confidentiality Terms are outlined from the beginning.  Please be reassured that the first session is as much for you to ask myself any questions too and see if you feel you would like to work with me in the future.  I will aim to help you feel at ease and comfortable from the outset by providing a safe and calm environment.
