Welcome my name is Nuala (Nu-la) I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor working with adults and young people.
I offer short, medium and long-term counselling and psychotherapy face-to-face and online.
You may be experiencing distressing thoughts, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed with relationships/life or wish to create a space in life for yourself. Counselling can support the exploration of difficulties, thoughts and feelings. A therapeutic relationship can offer and promote access to self-awareness and emotional healing.
It is my belief that change can be facilitated in an environment that feels safe, non-judgemental and confidential. My way of working intends to offer a non-directive, open and genuine connection working within a person-centred modality.
I am committed to growing my own self-awareness and working in a reflexive, curious manner. I attend regular supervision and relevant training that adheres to continual professional development and best practice.
Initial contact to explore working together would be through an initial conversation to gain insight into what brings you to counselling and how I may support. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions about the way I work and the therapeutic process.
*I am currently offering reduced rate supervision sessions as a supervisor in training please feel free to contact to discuss further*
Areas of experience:
I decided to retrain as a psychotherapist after 10 rewarding years as a secondary school teacher. During my psychotherapy training I gained experience in a number of placement settings. This enabled me to gain experience of working with a wide range of mental health issues, age-groups, class, gender, race and sexuality. My placements were within the Nottinghamshire area and included; Women’s Aid, Base 51, Bilborough 6th form college and The Carers Federation. In addition to private practice I work within the NHS mental health service.
