I provide a private specialist psychotherapy service based in Mansfield, North Nottinghamshire. I also continue to proudly work for the NHS where I have 38 years experience of working as a Principal Adult Psychotherapist and Mental Health Nurse. This has given me a wealth of insights, knowledge and experience in working with a wide variety of mental health issues. I have a warm, friendly manner and aim to achieve a supportive and explorative therapeutic relationship.
Psychotherapy and Counselling allows us to explore experiences from your past, perhaps from your childhood or more recent events and relationships, which might be troubling and painful to you. Psychotherapy can help to gain new insights and understanding and achieve ways to improve mental health and wellbeing. I have experience and particular interests in working with:
Sexual Abuse (in childhood or more recently for both men and women)
I offer Psychotherapy and Counselling appointments to both individuals and couples. Appointments are 1 hour in duration with the first assessment appointment lasting 90 minutes. Psychotherapy sessions may take place over short or long term periods depending on individual needs.
Psychotherapy provides space to develop insights into developmental childhood experiences which might have shaped our mental health as adults. In childhood we are shaped and influenced by relationships and events, which if unhealthy or damaging, we can continue to repeat and this can affect how we perceive ourselves and relate to others and our environment in adult life.
