Hello and a very warm welcome. I'm Marc (he/him). I’ve been seeing people as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003, starting at the Nottingham Priory as a drug and addictions therapist, and later as a volunteer at the Nottingham Counselling Service. I’ve seen a wide variety of people, working with a broad range of issues, from weight to worry, from isolation and loneliness, to feeling overwhelmed and swamped by others. I've worked many times now with people who have self identified as on the autism scale or ND or ADHD.

Hello, my name is Sarah. I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor working in the Nottingham area. It is often said that choosing to seek help and support through counselling is the hardest step. I agree, and would say it is the bravest decision, often made at the most difficult of times. I believe the Counselling room should be a place where you can discuss the issues of greatest importance to you, in confidence and without fear of judgement. Because I am passionate about the work a client and I do I offer a reduced rate for the initial consultation, believing that our working alliance is the key ingredient to success

Life often presents us with stress, moments of feeling stuck, under the weight of depression and anxiety. If you're grappling with present-day troubles or seeking healing from past experiences, you're not alone.

Asking for support can sometimes be difficult, we worry about what people are going to think about us and how they will judge us, our issues may seem too big, too painful, too embarrassing, too weird or the opposite too small , too unimportant to be taken seriously. Those worries can hold you back from seeking support and living the life you want and deserve, I know, I was once there too. Its a scary step trusting someone with your inner most thoughts and feelings but together we can look at your present experience and explore them to see if there is any connection to the past, and identify any changes that can be made.

I provide a supportive environment in which we can explore together the difficulties that you're experiencing without any judgement. Life can be tough, and change can be hard. We often get fused to unwanted thoughts, beliefs, and struggle with them. We can often feel despair and a sense of hopelessness. I help people realise that unwanted thoughts, feelings, and circumstances can, and do, change, and help people make positive differences in their life.

I know life can be tough at times for a variety of reasons, and we can find ourselves feeling out of control and under pressure, leaving us struggling and feeling lost, not knowing who to turn to for help and support. It may help you to share your thoughts and feelings, and in doing so you will be positioning yourself in the direction of potential growth, healing and change, which can help you manage your challenges and day to day life.

Hello, I’m Fiona, a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, trained at the University of Nottingham. I'm BACP registered and I work with adult clients in Beeston, the NG8 area and West Bridgford, Nottingham. At times things can seem too much to handle on your own, like when you’re grieving a loss, feeling alone or rejected. You might be coping with anger, not feeling good enough as you are, tired of decisions made for you, not by you. It may feel hard to trust, after harmful experiences or relationships. You don’t need to go through this on your own.

I offer short-term counselling, where we can work through more immediate and specific problems and longer-term psychotherapy for more intricate and deeper exploration. Whatever you have experienced, my aim is to help you move forward and benefit from the way you want to live your life. I understand how the impact of trauma on our lives creates a block in how we think and behave; where our past can overshadow or impede our view of our present life. With grief & loss, I recognise the parallel process of coping with our daily lives whilst managing a roller coaster of emotions and feelings that is both challenging and exhausting.

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. I have always been interested in the stories of others, hearing the reality of how things are.

When you’re feeling stuck in a pattern or weighed down by distressing feelings it can be really hard to find a way forward and find the motivation to change things. You are the expert on your own situation, but sometimes it can really help to talk things through to help you understand yourself more, make changes and live your life more fully.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
