Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples

Welcome, and thank you for visiting

I am Cheryl and I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with several years experience. I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to talk about issues that are causing you problems or worries. I have my own private practice which is based at Ransom Wood Business Park in Mansfield, and is set in acres of beautiful woodland.

You may be struggling with sadness from a loss of a loved one. Low level depression and anxiety could be preventing you from enjoying your life. You perhaps feel stuck and unable to move forward after experiencing a trauma. There may be a number of issues you are facing that is resulting in you feeling out of control both emotionally and physically. You may be feeling low in mood and experiencing physical symptoms that you cannot explain.

It will definitely help to get support for these feelings through counselling. It really can help to have someone you can talk to in a completely confidential way. I am a counsellor who is down to earth and caring. I offer you a confidential and comfortable space to explore your thoughts and feelings. We will work together to look at ways of helping you to lead the life you crave and deserve.

When the time is right for you, please contact me by text, email or phone. You can be assured of a warm response.

About Counselling

Counselling is sometimes called ‘talking therapy’ and it lets you discuss your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment. The term can mean different things to different people, but in general, it is a process people seek when they are distressed or anxious and would like some help to deal with these feelings. When you feel ready I will encourage you to share your worries with me and I am there to listen. Together we will work to find ways that feel right for you to live the life you need.

Initially when you contact me we will have a chat on the phone about counselling and what you feel you may need. We will agree a time that's convenient to you for the first session and this can either be face to face in my Covid compliant practice, online or by telephone. If you prefer online this can be either using Zoom or Facetime, whichever is easiest for you.

Unlike other services available in the community, you wont have to wait to see me for weeks or months. Your problems are usually immediate and require immediate attention. When you call we will have a chat and an appointment will be booked for the same week.

You may decide that a few sessions are sufficient to get it off your chest and that's ok. You can decide to do this face to face, online or by telephone. You may feel that more sessions are required and we can chat this through with no obligation on your part.

Couples Therapy

I am able offer relationship therapy to couples who may be struggling with aspects of their relationship that are getting in the way of each partner feeling fulfilled. Very few relationships exist conflict-free - whether it’s the odd disagreement, repeatedly arguing or you’ve lost the fun element in your relationship - it’s natural to start to question its longevity. When this (one of our most important relationships) begins to falter, our health and happiness can also suffer. For many of us, our first instinct is to try and work through the problems alone, but it can be incredibly helpful to seek outside support.

What My Clients Say

My Areas of Specialism

I am experienced in helping clients who have or are encountering difficulties with:

Impact of Menopause

Personal Stress

Work Related Stress

Relationships/Individuals and in couples

Panic Attacks






Anger management

My belief is that one of the most important features of any counselling and psychotherapy is the relationship between counsellor and client. We will spend time getting to know one another and building up a trust between us that will nourish the relationship and give you confidence to share and process your feelings with me. My experience is that you can gain much just by being given space to voice your feelings and anxieties in a confidential and non judgemental way.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is counselling?

Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. I will help you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness.

How can counselling help me?

Counselling can help with many difficult life problems - from coping with traumatic experiences and events, to dealing with depression and anxiety or managing harmful emotions and behaviours. As a couple you may be experiencing difficulties relating to significant life events or it may be an eroding of the bond you have always had because life gets in the way

What can I expect at the first visit?

At the first visit we will just chat about how i can help you with whatever life difficulties you are experiencing. You will learn what to expect from the counselling process. We will learn a little about each other which will help you to decide if you feel comfortable with us working together going forward. You will be assured of a warm welcome.

In your couple we will chat about how you met, what life was like at the beginning and a little about your backgrounds. Then to look at what has recently got in the way of you having a fulfilled life together. You will be presented with a safe, comfortable and neutral space to be honest with each other and to work together to achieve whatever you both need within the relationship.

How long are the sessions?

Each session lasts an hour. This could just be a few sessions or it could develop into a series of sessions to suit you. You may have a number of issues that require deeper and more intense therapy over time

How much will I have to pay and how?

Individual Appointments

Each individual session is 60 mins at a cost of £60 for individuals. If you make a block booking discount will be offered.

Concessions may be offered by negotiation

Block bookings of 6 sessions discounted at £330 (when paid in advance)

Couples Counselling Appointments

Each session is 60 mins at a cost of £70 for 60 minites.

In light of many recent cancelled appointments I am changing my payment arrangements. Payment will need to be made at least 48 hours in advance of the session and can be made by card or bank transfer.

Will what I tell you remain confidential?

What is shared in the session is kept in the session. There are certain circumstances, when confidentiality may need to be broken but we will discuss this during our initial meeting. I am bound by the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), of which I am a member.

How many sessions will I need?

There is no limit to the number of sessions you can have. Some people need longer in therapy than others dependant on what you would like to achieve. If you decide that you would like us to work together, we will review the sessions every 6-8 weeks to ensure you are getting what you need from our work together.
