I offer clients an opportunity to talk in confidence to someone who has a professional understanding of emotional difficulties. My aim is to support you to develop greater insight into the issues that are bothering you and facilitate the discovery of possible new ways of dealing with them. I will not judge you or try to influence your decisions in any way but instead will respect your ability to make your own choices in finding ways to move forward. I understand that the decision to come to counselling is a big commitment in time, money and emotion. It is therefore, important to me that you feel as fully informed and as comfortable as possible in making that decision. An initial appointment will give you the chance to get a sense of what it might be like to work with me and although this session is subject to the usual fee, you are under no obligation to continue, should you choose not to do so. If you would like to discuss things further, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
I am a registered psychotherapist and counsellor with clinical experience working with a wide range of issues since 2008. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I hold full professional insurance and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. This includes a continued commitment to ongoing supervision and training. I have an independent practice which I run from a dedicated office in my home in Farnsfield, north Nottinghamshire (NG22).The venue has free, off street parking and offers quiet, comfortable surroundings with a high degree of privacy.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
