Tim Carrette - Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy

Training and experience

I trained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist in 1997.

I have been offering individual sessions since 1990 on a private basis and for the NHS in both Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, UK and Europe..

In addition to these I have regularly run Group Therapy sessions, Couples work and currently I am teaching on the Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy course and the Relational Integrative Psychotherapy course at The Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute.

Currently I am writing and researching Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy.

What is Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy?

Gestalt is the quintessential relational therapy. The original birthplace of mindful awareness. Based in here and now process of relationship, it is a talking therapy which embodies the whole being, mind, body and emotion.

It focuses on three key aspects of relationship:

-       The untapped potential which lives within the client and is making itself known by problems such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties etc.

-       The here and now sense and perception of the therapist who will meet the client honestly, respectfully and authentically.

-       Most importantly, the healing meeting of a therapeutic relational process.

Often called ‘healing through meeting’ the here and now focus enables the release of difficult experiences and emotions which are then healed and the therapeutic relationship is eventually embodied and remembered. The old “script” of poor self image and low self esteem is replaced by a reservoir of self worth which is potentially always available for future use through the journey of life.

Areas of expertise and specialist interests.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Emotional literacy
  • Childhood issues
  • Trauma
  • Self Worth
  • Sexuality issues
  • Spirituality

I abide by the UKCP and SCPTI code of ethics.  All my work is fully insured and Supervised.

Parminder Kaur Soar, Person Centred Counsellor

Within counselling the client is empowered to discover who they truly are through gentle exploration of their life’s journey. As the client’s understanding of self deepens, wondrous insights emerge thus enhancing their life and achieving a meaningful relationship with their true inner self.

This is a uniquely bespoke service that is tailor made specifically for YOU as we strongly believe that you are the KEY player: YOU know your story and you will be the driving force on your journey of self discovery and realisation.

I will encourage and support you through this process of reflection and self-enquiry by using creative ways of working such as storytelling, art work and drama as you once again remember who YOU truly are.

I ask that you give 100% commitment to this process and take 100% responsibility for the work you will be invited to do as the personal benefits to you will be hundredfold!

I will also be 100% committed to working creatively with you, enabling you to work through your personal story and thus “realise your dream”.

Kate McAndrew UKCP Reg., MBACP – Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision

I offer counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples, and have specific experience of working with relationship issues as well as with clients experiencing bereavement, anger issues, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, low self-esteem ... and with clients wanting to work towards a more meaningful way of living. 

I am also a fully trained supervisor, to diploma level, and offer individual and group supervision.

My personal approach is Person-Centred, based on a positive belief in the potential of human beings. I bring a willingness to meet a client where they are and to honestly participate in a therapeutic relationship. I believe that together we can find some insight and clarity to enable you to be everything you can be, therefore empowering you to make decisions and choices that are right for you, and build a sense of resilience to aid emotional well-being now, and into the future.

I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist with a Master’s degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy with over ten years’ experience of working with individuals and couples from a variety of settings, including GP Surgeries, Universities, Primary Schools, various Voluntary Sector Counselling Services, as well as in Private Practice.  I also have a Diploma in Clinical Supervision. I am a member of both UKCP and BACP and adhere to their codes of ethics and good practice, and I am committed to on-going personal and professional development, including regular supervision. In addition to my core qualification, I am trained to work with Couples; with Anger Management issues; and have attended in-depth training in working with trauma.

Counselling aims to offer you the opportunity, in a confidential setting, to explore, discover and clarify ways of looking at your life, and discover new ways of being, both individually and in relationship. It is a way of giving you time and space to discover more effective and rewarding ways of coping and living. 

As your therapist, I would aim to support you in developing your own insights, awareness and possible solutions to the issues that are important to you.

Natalie Coupland MA BACP UKCP reg. Psychotherapist

Qualifcations and Experience

I am a registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor with 9 years clinical experience working with a wide range of issues.  As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy(UKCP), I hold full professional insurance and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. This includes a continued commitment to ongoing supervision and training. 

The way in which I work.

My aim as a therapist is to offer a non-judgemental, supportive space where you can explore what you are experiencing in order to develop new insights, make difficult decisions or simply find a more comfortable "way of being". The way in which I work is informed by a Humanistic theory of psychotherapy. This is a holistic approach with an emphasis on self-development and achieving one’s potential.  It encourages clients to explore their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions.  This is facilitated by a Person-Centred approach to the therapeutic relationship which values the unique nature of every individual’s experience and their autonomy to choose a way forward. The goal is to enable the expression of difficult feelings which may be underlying current problems, leading to an emergence of a more positive self-concept and improved relationships with others.

What to expect

After an initial telephone call or e-mail, we can arrange a first session.  This is an opportunity for us to decide if counselling can offer what you are looking for. It is a chance for you to find out more about the therapy process, to discuss what you hope to achieve and most importantly, to ensure you feel comfortable talking with me.

There is no obligation to continue at this stage but should you choose to do so, clients are usually invited to book 5 subsequent sessions with the aim of reviewing how things are going at the end of that time. We may then agree to end or decide to continue for a set period of time or on an open-ended basis. Ideally sessions are arranged at regular weekly intervals, although flexibility to allow for work and family commitments is usually possible.

The decision to come to counselling is a big commitment in time, money and emotion. Therefore, it is important to me that you feel as fully informed and comfortable in making it as possible, so please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss any concerns you may still have.

Elizabeth Corr - Counsellor

About me

I have been training in the area of Psychology for the past 14 years. I completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Lincoln in Psychology and Clinical Psychology BSc. Whilst doing this I spent time working for Samaritans. I then went on to finish a Masters in Forensic Psychology MSc at Birmingham City University. Whilst completing this I worked full time within a Secure Psychiatric Hospital in Nottinghamshire. where I gained experience working in a group setting. Following this I have worked as a Counsellor for NSPCC and Childline. I am currently working towards a Doctorate in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology by Professional Studies at Metanoia Institute which I hope to complete in 2019. In the last two years I have been working 1:1 with both men and women in a Counselling and Psychotherapy capacity. This has included working with male offenders within a prison setting and women within a local Women's Centre.  

How I work as a counsellor

My approach to working with client is an integrative one. This means that I believe that every one is individual and different things work for different people. Therefore I adapt my approach to suit the individual I am working with. It is important that the work we do together is beneficial to you and therefore I will be led by what works for you. 

Whilst I work in an integrative way the basis of that integration is relational. I strongly believe that it is our early relational bonds that influence the person we become. I also believe that in order to best help you our therapeutic relationship will be important. It can tell us a lot about how you relate in the wider world and can provide a safe and encouraging environment for you.  

I am currently a trainee member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and as part of that I am bound by their "Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct". I am also a member of the British Psyhological Society (BPS).

Sheila McNeil 

UKCP (Accred) Psychotherapist and BABCP (Accred) CBT  Therapist

Counselling, CBT Therapy, Couples Therapy and Clinical Supervision

I can offer you a safe, comfortable and confidential space where we can work together on whatever problems you may be experiencing. I believe we all strive to be the person we wish to be every day but sometimes life problems and relationships move us off course and we need help to find our way back to a more stable place. You have within yourself the capacity to understand yourself better. My role is to tailor a therapy approach from the wide range of training, knowledge and experience I have gained over time, that will best suit you to achieve this.

How therapy can help you

I believe that therapy can give you an opportunity to learn about yourself and understand your own processes more clearly, especially when you may be feeling anxious or depressed or impacted by some life trauma. My training and experience includes humanistic counselling therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). These different approaches can provide you with a framework to explore and learn more about your difficulties and to use a range of creative ways to express your thoughts and feelings. We can identify what triggers your problems, help you to find ways to challenge your thoughts and develop your ability to cope better. We can also focus on the barriers and challenges that you are facing and can look together at a way through. You can then use this knowledge to guide you towards fulfilment, confidence and self-discovery. Therapy can help you to create those opportunities for positive change and to develop your resilience and self-worth including incorporating, empathy, mindfulness and self-compassion into your daily life.

When and where

I can offer both daytime and evening appointments to suit your needs here at The Magnolia Therapy Centre. We can decide together whether short term or longer term therapy is the right way forward for you and of course we’ll review your progress regularly as we go along so you get the best out of the time.

What you can expect at your first session

I understand that taking the step first step to talk about about things which challenge us or cause distress can be difficult initially. So our first meeting will to give you the opportunity, at a pace which suits you, to share with me your thoughts and feelings about the problems you would like to help with. Having used this time to gain a clearer understanding, we will then think about your goals for future sessions and plan together how best to approach our work together.

My training

I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor (Accredited UKCP) and CBT Therapist (Accredited BABCP) with over 20 years experience. I have a Masters Degree in Humanistic Counselling and Post Graduate Diploma in CBT, both from the University of Nottingham. I also have a Post Graduale Diploma  in Clinical Supervision

I believe in the process and opportunities that life long learning can bring. I am committed to continually adding to my skills and knowledge base with regular ongoing professional training which meets the standards required by my accrediting professional bodies. In addition, I have trained in Couples Therapy and have added this to the range of therapies I offer.

My knowledge and experience

I have extensive experience of working within the NHS, the private and public sectors and in private practice, providing both short-term and long-term therapy. I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of issues, including general anxiety, social phobia, depression, trauma and loss, obsessive compulsive problems (OCD), health anxiety, adjustment and managing change, and work related stress.

Hannah Luck, Relationship Therapist (Individual, Family & Couple Counselling)

Perhaps you are having difficulties in your couple relationship or in your family? I am an experienced relationship therapist (I trained with Relate Lincolnshire and I now work at Relate Nottinghamshire) and I have a small private practice here at the Magnolia Centre. I specialise in relationship issues offering counselling to individuals, families and couples.  

About me - how I can help

If you are experiencing difficulties, feeling confused or stuck and not sure how to change or move forward in yourself and/or in your relationships, then perhaps counselling is going to help you. I offer a safe and supportive space in which you can reflect on what is going in your life and help you understand yourself and your relationships more clearly and work towards any changes you would like to make. I offer a non-judgemental, supportive stance and I will always work hard to provide a service that suits the client and that is both ethical and compassionate.

My approach

I am an integrative therapist which means I combine elements of different therapeutic theories. My practice is mostly based on two key approaches: family therapy (how we interact with others) and psychodynamic theory (our inner thoughts and beliefs from childhood to the present). I use techniques from other theories such as Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. The tools and techniques I draw on depend on the client’s presenting problems and our agreed goals for therapy.

My experience and training

I have an MA in Relationship Therapy and I work with individuals, couples and families at Relate Nottinghamshire. In addition, I am currently in training for a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy which I will complete in December 2018. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a Communications Manager and I have experience of working in the private sector, public sector and the third sector.


£50 per session – individuals; £60 per session – couples & families

Cenzine Decelis ; Integrative Psychotherapist

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means that rather than being guided by only one approach, I build my work around each of my clients as the unique people they are.

I believe that each of us already has the answers. It’s just that sometimes we need a helping hand to unearth them and appreciate our own wisdom and creativity. I work with individuals both short and long term, offering a safe, warm and confidential environment in which to explore their experience with interest and compassion

My work broadly falls into 3 categories:

Memory: When events, relationships or unfinished business from the past continue to dominate your present life in unhelpful ways. Sometimes distressing ‘symptoms’ such as anxiety and depression can be the result of our creativity in finding ways to avoid the emotional impact of difficult experiences from our past. Or you might recognise that your relationships keep following the same pattern and you want it to be different.

Mystery: You may be struggling to come to terms with something or have a less well formed sense of wanting to feel happier, calmer or that you are not fully yourself but without knowing how or why.

Mastery: To help you manage your stress, increase your coping strategies, recognise your needs and regulate your emotions. This can enable you to be better able to cope with your circumstances, or be in an improved frame of mind to decide what changes you need to make and how to make them.

Of course real people rarely fit into such neat boxes and so these labels are mainly a guide to help us both think about your goals. You might well want or need a blend of approaches
