About me and my therapy practice

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile. We all have periods of time when life just feels too much, we may feel overwhelmed, feel stuck or find ourselves repeating unhealthy patterns of behaviour. Reaching out can be the first step of your journey in working towards a healthier way of being, this can be immensely liberating.

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist with many years of experience. My core training is within a Humanistic and Integrative approach and my practice is strength focused with a trauma informed. With over 30 years of experience supporting people within a variety of statutory organisations, such as a Recovery Worker NHS (substance misuse), a Multi- Systemic Family Therapist (City Council), and a Mental Health support worker within a University setting. I have worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team’s including psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators. I have experience of working with dual diagnosis (those with enduring mental health and substance use problems), complex trauma issues and families who are at risk of harming their children. With this breath of knowledge and understanding of the complexities of life enables me to use the most appropriate approach to reflect the diversity I work with.

I know at times it can be lonely and tiring trying to manage on your own and I am here to work alongside you. I will endeavour to reach your goals and support you to find ways to manage the issues that have led you to seek help. I offer you space and time to untangle emotions, feelings and behaviours that may at times not make sense. During our sessions I will offer a gentle, caring, and compassionate safe space. 

Practice description

I am offering video and phone sessions until further notice and will then resume face to face. Although I am mindful that some may prefer for us to continue work online, I will be led by you.

My regular practise space is based in the centre of Nottingham. This space is not suitable with those with mobility issues. I will ensue that those with issues off mobility are able to access my therapy, by video/phone or by using counselling premises which has appropriate access.  

   

My first session

 It is important to find the most appropriate therapist to meet your needs, for what could be a life affirming journey. Initially, I offer a free 15 min phone call or video call to see if we would benefit from working together. If you feel comfortable with me as your therapist, we will then book in our first session.

Within our first session we shall explore the reasons which prompted you to seek help and to think about what it might mean to be in therapy.

Sessions are 50 minutes long.
