JJ Counselling and Psychotherapy
Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Maybe you're experiencing a toxic relationship, your anxiety is taking over or you need to find an outlet to manage some of your overwhelming emotions. It can be hard to put things into perspective. As a Psychotherapist in West Bridgford, your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority. I’m happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.
In these uncertain and very worrying times it can be so comforting to know someone is listening to you and knows how important your feelings are and wants to help you smile. I have been following guidelines from the World Health Organisation and the Government policies as well as my own professional body of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP) which has given me the decision to turn all my work over to the internet and I will be using online video programmes to continue my work. The work done is all still completely confidential and safe. If you have any questions or worries, please contact me and I will do my best to accomodate.
I am qualified to work online and have completed an online course that covers online therapy work created and accredited by the BACP and The Open University in collaboration.

a little about me
I know how it feels to wake up every morning and feel a huge heavy weight upon you. Although we all experience things in our own unique way this overwhelming feeling is just out of our window of tolerance.
I knew then that I wanted to alleviate this for both myself and others. It felt really important to find a new perspective and mindset to focus on.
I started my psychotherapy training and it gave me the knowledge and wisdom I really needed to gain a whole new direction in my life. I felt re-awakened and could not wait to share this with others.
I am a registered BACP member and I studied at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute.
I have worked at Carers Federation where I worked with clients from different backgrounds before starting and focusing on my own private practice.
I have worked with childhood issues, relationships, accumulative trauma, loss, self confidence and
What To Expect At Your Visit
Therapy can be a nerve wracking experience as it solely focuses on you which I can sadly say you may have been avoiding. It is so brave to reach out for help so if you are considering delving into therapy then I want to acknowledge that.
I am here to listen to you, hear you, value you and sit beside you.
Any presenting and troubling issues that are really grinding you down I can help with. Anxiety, depression, self esteem, low confidence, grief, relationship issues, attachment issues, trauma, childhood issues and any issues that are not enabling you to function as yourself causing a feeling of loss and floating. It is really liberating to have someone to share your load with.
Upon deciding you would like to embark on this therapy journey, I am available for contact with these details available on the website.
