I’m passionate about giving others the time and support they need to work through the things that are troubling them. I work with a wide range of issues but I have a particular interest in working with issues around parenthood.
As a person-centred therapist, it’s my goal to give you the space to really explore where you are, what you’ve experienced, and to find your own meanings and answers to what’s troubling you. To do this I aim to:
listen to your situation with empathy and understanding
be fully accepting and value you as a person
be open and honest at all times
I am based at the Humber Therapy Centre in Beeston, Nottingham. I am also a Level One Certified Online and Telephone Counsellor and am therefore able to work online or by phone with anyone in the UK.
Areas of Work
I work with people with a wide range of problems and challenges in their lives and believe that everyone should feel accepted and able to work through the issues that are causing them distress . My experience includes working with trauma, abuse, bereavement, loss, depression, anxiety, and self-harm.
After working with parents-to-be and new parents for many years as a breastfeeding counsellor at the National Childbirth Trust, I have a particular interest as a therapist in working with challenges around pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding trauma and grief, and the postnatal period. This includes working with mothers, birthing parents and partners.
If you think you might be interested in working together, then please contact me for a free 30 minute phone or Zoom call and I will do my best to answer your questions.
