We all have a story and at times it is really important for our story to be heard. This can be hard when our normal is defined by the expectations of others. Let’s face it, normal is not a one size fits all, ultimately because we are all unique. Life is not static, that’s why it impacts us in so many ways. I understand the conflicts between what we feel and what we portray, especially when we’re struggling. I know this because like you, I come with my own life experiences. Perhaps you are thinking about how to change things in your life, but not sure where to start?
As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, I cannot tell you what to do, but I am here to support, encourage and offer a non-judgemental listening ear as you explore what may be causing you difficulty. We will work together, at your pace, with sessions that meet your individual needs and uniqueness.
I know this step can be daunting, but it can be very rewarding. This is about you, a chance to express how things really are. It is about feeling safe through a relationship based on trust and respect. It is about taking time for yourself, with the hope of initiating change and moving in a more fulfilling direction.
I work from a wellbeing centre based in Sherwood, situated in a quiet, discreet location. It is easily accessible by public transport. Parking spaces are usually available at the premises. There are also free car parks and some on street parking nearby. I see clients over 18 years of age with a range of issues. This can be short term or long term.
Below are a few of the areas of counselling I help people with.
- Bereavement / Loss
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Racial Identify
- Sexual Abuse
I am also a volunteer counsellor with First Steps Eating Disorders under EDISS, based at the University of Nottingham; as I have a particular interest in how the relationship with food can affect emotional and physical wellbeing .
