Throughout our life we can experience periods of upset, which can leave us feeling alone, depressed, anxious, paranoid, angry and the list goes on. It may seem difficult to get out of this dark time alone. Life can for this reason feel challenging. If any of this feels familiar for you, I can support you to get to that happy place.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
The aim of counselling is to offer you an opportunity to grow and develop.
I am a qualified counsellor who practices with a Humanistic & Integrative approach. This means I will focus on the needs of you, using techniques from different areas.
Each person is unique and therefore I do not feel I am the expert of you and can tell you what to do, my belief is to support and guide you to with my experience to help you work through your concerns.
The first step to start counselling can feel overwhelming, bringing past thoughts to the surface and stirring up feelings of being judged, my attitude is to value you for doing the best you can. It can be tough for us at times. To accept us for who and how we are.
I value my role my providing my clients with a safe space to open up and explore their concerns in a safe, non judgmental space. By being supportive, empathetic and provide an honest open approach and to listen attentively.
I feel by incorporating some creative therapy as well as talk therapy, can aid clients to explore other ways of opening up. Sometimes we can not find the words and visual work can help to bring the words to the surface.
I base myself at the Magnolia Therapy centre which is on Mansfield road NG5 2EF. This is easily accessible on a bus route on Mansfield road. Free parking is also available within this area.
Sessions will last for 50 minutes and take place weekly, with an initial 50 min assessment session for us to establish if we can work together. Counselling can be short or long term depending on your need, with reviews to see how you are growing.
Each 50 minute session will be charged at a rate of £45. With the initial session costing £20.
A contract will be in place for us to establish boundaries, client confidentiality as well as assessing risk. For more information around this please contact me

I am qualified in a BSC Honors Counselling & Psychotherapy Degree, as well as additional specialised training.

Further to this I will endeavor to continuously progress with my own development.
