About me

Welcome to my profile:

About Me
From my therapy service you can expect a safe, non-judgmental space to talk about difficulties along with consistently high standards of care, professionalism and confidentiality. I am committed to offering the highest standards of professional care and quality psychological services. I am an experienced Psychotherapist who practices in the very best interest of clients.

I understand how important it is to feel at ease and comfortable talking to a therapist and appreciate the courage it takes to seek support. I can offer a safe and confidential space to share personal problems, difficult emotions and feelings that you may not want to talk to other people in your life about. Sometimes it helps to talk to a therapist who can be completely impartial and without worrying or holding back for fear of upsetting or burdening close family or friends.

I am dedicated to providing a confidential, safe, respectful environment where you will be accepted unconditionally without ever feeling judged. I feel very privileged to work with client's and listen to personal life stories. Very often therapy can make a real positive difference in peoples' lives. I aim to provide the conditions where clients can feel at ease and confident enough to confide in me and share their personal problems and life experience.

I have over 18 years experience as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist within a wide range of mental health care settings including the Voluntary Sector, NHS Secondary and Primary Health Care Teams, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, Hospitals, Hospices, Employee Assistance Programmes, Colleges and Universities.

I believe clients deserve the very best standards of professional care and consideration when deciding to access therapy. I have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to help and support clients with a wide range of mental health problems. I have many years post training and accreditation experience. I am genuinely passionate about helping and supporting individuals experiencing a wide range of mental health and well-being problems and difficulties. I take a lot of pride in my practice and aim to provide the very best clinical services possible.

My Clinic Location
I practice in the Mansfield Nottinghamshire area from private and comfortable therapy rooms close to the Town Centre. Consultation rooms are discreet, secure, with disabled access, comfortable and private with plenty of on-site parking available.
