Hello, my name is Nettie. I am a qualified psycho-therapeutic counsellor with over 8 years’ experience. Do you feel that past events are affecting how you cope with life today? Do you struggle with any of these: low mood; depression; anxiety; panic attacks; stress; low self-esteem; lack of self-confidence; loss, not feeling validated, anger-related issues and the effects of trauma and at times it feels so overwhelming that you find it's too much and you're struggling to cope? Do you feel you're at a crossroads in your life and you're not sure in which direction to go? You want to feel better but aren't quite sure how to get there.

I have recently completed an additional qualification in Rape and Sexual Abuse .
I don't have a typical client. Everyone is unique and complex and if you have found yourself drawn to the idea of counselling I will do my best to build a trusting relationship, offering a safe, non judgemental space and ring-fenced time just for you to talk about the issues you want to bring. I work with adults both short and long term to strive to help you reach the goal you had in mind from it. I have found these reasons can be very diverse, from dealing with past or present events, fears, traumas, anxieties, grief. My aim is to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and help you bring about the changes you want to see.

Are you feeling down, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, pretending everything is OK when it's not? Do you have the sense that life has passed you by, that you lack purpose and drive? Maybe you've lost that sense of self, suffer low self-esteem or feel that you just don't belong? Are you struggling with trauma/past abuse or feel isolated, anxious and lonely? Perhaps you have relationship difficulties or health issues that are getting you down? Maybe you're elderly or stuck at home, feeling forgotten? These are all good reasons to access counselling and help you move forward in life. I look forward to hearing from you.

Coming to counselling is an adventure! It can be immense fun and incredibly inspirational. It can also be hard and will certainly make you take a good look at yourself! If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.

I have a number of years of experience working in the charity and private sector, supporting clients with a wide range of emotional issues. ​ At the heart of my counselling practice is the aim to provide a space where you can come to breathe, to be, and find unconditional acceptance, positive reflection and discover alternative narratives and perspectives for yourself. A relationship that enables that to occur, allows for the development of self-awareness, self- acceptance, hope and healing.
