Counselling Nottingham

I'm a psychotherapist and couples counsellor with over 16 years experience. I’m qualified and registered which are essential. Just as important is my innate ability to see the best in others, fascination with personal development and the desire to help individuals and couples overcome difficulties in order to live happier more fulfilled lives. 


People come to see me for a variety of reasons. Some are feeling overwhelmed by what’s currently happening in their life and are looking for help to deal with specific issues such as anxiety, bereavement, stress, depression, or relationship issues. Others come because they want to focus on personal growth. They are seeking guidance to become more self aware, to challenge entrenched negative beliefs, to stop destructive habits and to create more meaning and authenticity in their life.


I put my client at the centre of our work together. The agenda is yours, my role is to help you resolve problem areas and achieve your goals. I will listen carefully to what you want to achieve and use my knowledge, experience and compassion to design a clear road map specifically for you. With a safe, supportive, caring environment, most people find therapy enables them to nurture the relationship they have with themselves and get to a better place in their lives.

I offer all my new clients a free 'Explore Call' so that they can explain what they're looking for and I can begin the process of understanding them and what they need at the moment. The next step is our first actual session where we agree our focus, timescale, review points and how we will both know that our work together is complete. Essentially, we make a verbal contract and this gives our work focus and allows flexibility, because we can re-contract. It's transparent to both of us.


I welcome clients from all over Nottingham, Beeston, Stapleford, Bramcote, Trowell, Clifton and surrounding areas.

Gottman Method Couples Counselling

My particular areas of expertise are: couples resilience; cross-cultural couples; effective communication & conflict resolution between couples.


Most couples go through rough patches and nearly all couples have several crises during their lifetimes. We know from research what makes the difference between those couples whose relationships survive and those who flounder. The good news is that these positive, effective habits can be learnt.


I use the Gottman Method Couples Therapy because it is based on extensive research analysing thousands of relationships. It provides practical, easy-to-understand interventions, so that you can change your relationship habits and get your communication and connection back on track. It can also help you understand if your relationship is likely to succeed or fail, and what you can do in either situation.



Other areas of expertise:

  • Adult Third Culture Kids
  • Intercultural Relationships, Expatriation
  • Transitioning Cultures and Countries

√ I recommend this counsellor

You helped me to realise that I already had all the answers

“Working with you individually was a really validating experience for me as I was in a position to not only share my personal experiences, I was also open to hear your input. You helped me to realise that I already had all the answers, I just needed to see them, accept them and move forward.”
