About Therapy and Counselling

Thank you for visiting my website. Finding the right therapist can be difficult and its important to find someone with whom you can feel comfortable and safe. I offer a truly non-judgemental and warm approach where you will be accepted as the unique human being you are. By enabling you to speak openly about what is happening in your life, I will join you in exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to help you to find lasting change and a different future.

I work with a wide range of adult clients and believe that support is valuable for all. Whether you are 18 or 80 it is never too late to change or create a different life story. I offer both long term and short term work with you in control of the content and the duration: it is my role to guide and support your own process not impose my own.

Many clients have commented that my way of working helps them to feel accepted, understood and trusted. This helps to build a relationship where clients can be honest and open about their issues and supports a depth of work where long lasting change can be found.




Services Offered

I offer a range of services for private clients:

  • Short term counselling for individuals
  • Long term therapy for individuals
  • Couples counselling and mediation

I am trained to work with any presenting issue and commonly work with:

  • Anxiety and Fearfulness
  • Depression and Sadness
  • Dealing with sudden change such as bereavement, redundancy and divorce/relationship difficulties
  • Survivors of trauma and abuse
  • Living with Long Term Conditions
  • Gender Issues and Stereotypes
  • Loneliness
  • Lack of Motivation, Low Energy, Resilience
  • Relationship difficulties

I enable and support my clients to lead the process as my work is underpinned by a strong belief that we all hold our own answers: we may just need help finding them.

I have a particular interest in narrative therapy and the use of story to help people describe their experiences, finding this to be particularly useful for working with survivors of trauma and abuse as it provides a gentle and safe way to express deeper emotions.

I am a qualified and experienced developmental coach offering an alternative approach to exploring personal change which is helpful for those wanting to focus on the future and make positive lasting changes to life and work.

I now offer couples counselling using Interpersonal Mediation as an approach to resolve unhelpful patterns of behaviour, conflict and communication difficulties.

I work from comfortable premises near the centre of Long Eaton, which is easily accessible by public transport with free parking available within a couple of minutes walk.
