Counselling Sutton-in-Ashfield

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

I am a Person-Centred and CBT Counsellor/Psychotherapist, EMDR Practitioner, Supervisor, Dramatherapist, Couple Counsellor  and Equine Facilitated Therapist with 20 years experience of supporting clients.


I offer a face to face and online service (Webcam, IM and email) and I have a wide experience in working with a variety of issues including: abuse, domestic violence, addiction(s), anxieties, deprssion, PTSD, self-harm, trauma, child related issues, cultural issues, eating disorders, general counselling, identity issues, sexual identity and spirituality.



Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy, EMDR & Dramatherapy

As an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist I have trained with LEAP and with Leanne Milward (Flying with Horses). With Spirit and Sultana, our horses, I strive to offer you an environment that is accepting, reflecting, liberating and healing. I also offer EMDR with Spirit and Sultana but I can also travel to you if you wish me to work with your horses.


As a Dramatherapist I can offer you a level of therapeutic work that is metaphorical and rich in the tapestry of self expression. With arts we could explore any issues that might feel otherwise overwhelming.



More about me

As a trainer I have taught a variety of courses within my own private practice as well as for Further Adult Colleges like Lewisham College and City Lit. I have trained Counsellors from the Certificate level all way to the Diploma including CPD workshops for trainee and qualified practitioners.


For ten years I was the Therapeutic Services Manager for a counselling service for women affected by domestic violence. I then worked for IAPT services and I am now in private practice as well as working for The University of Nottingham.


If you would like to make an appointment, feel free to send me a message.
