HI, I'M SHOMARI;
I'M HERE TO HELP YOU BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY TOWARDS A BRIGHTER FUTURE.
HERE'S A BIT ABOUT ME
Do you find yourself overwhelmed with anxiety and feel trapped or sad? Do you find yourself wanting to make change(s) in your life but lack the confidence and/or motivation to do so? Perhaps you are having difficulties in a relationship with a partner, a family member or at work, and feel unappreciated, undervalued and alone? I work with people just like you to reduce anxiety, explore and address issues, and find solutions. I am a highly qualified, experienced counsellor, based in Nottingham, UK; I specialise in helping people to build self-esteem, find new, healthy ways to approach relationships, and feeling good again!
Based in Nottingham, I am a qualified, BACP registered practitioner. I offer one to one counselling and psychotherapy in both online and face to face capacities.
I have over 7 years experience in working with young people and adults (aged 16+), many of whom have had adverse and traumatic experiences in childhood. I am also experienced in working with identity, whether it be in a racial, religious, cultural, sexual or gender related context.
I operate a highly bespoke practice, and I am experienced in working with a broad range of issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Low Self-Esteem, Sadness, Loss, Relationship Issues, OCD, Anger, Feeling Lost, Domestic Violence, Trauma, Sexual Violence, Abuse and identity. This list is by no means exhaustive, so please do enquire if you have further questions.
I believe that the issues we face are a result of our external experiences, and are not reflective of who we are in our entirety. I am here to help you untangle the wires of your experience, in order to help you make sense of things and move forward with clarity.

HERE'S WHAT I OFFER
FACE TO FACE COUNSELLING
Whether you're looking for some short term therapy because you've been feeling down and nothing you've tried seems to be working, you're tired of waiting lists and lengthy referral times, or perhaps you're needing an open-ended service that will allow you to steadily unpack things at your own pace - My face to face service can be tailored to suit your needs.
My face to face practice is located just outside the city centre of Nottingham, in a discreet and comfortable setting. It has off the street parking, and is accessible via the city's bus transportation service.
The rooms are spacious, relaxing and warm; affording you the comfort to relax and get the most out of your therapy.
The premises are wheelchair accessible and have ground floor facilities.
50 MINUTE SESSION £50
As the fast-paced world that we live continues to change, technology has become vital for keeping us connected.
Online Counselling and Psychotherapy creates an opportunity for a different way of working that opens an array of possibilities. Perhaps you like the idea of accessing support from the comfort of your own home, or perhaps you aren't local to the area. Whatever the reason, my online Counselling and Psychotherapy services have been adapted so that you get the same great service, via your laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Sessions are encrypted for your safety and only you will be able to access to your session.

HERE ARE SOME FAQs
Is therapy right for me?
A common misconception about therapy, is that it is only useful if you are suffering from anxiety and/or depression. The fact that you're considering therapy, more than likely means that therapy is for you and that you would gain something from it.
How long does each session last?
Typically, sessions are 50 minutes each. Longer sessions can sometimes be arranged, however this is dependent on a number of factors. If you feel you may need longer than 50 minutes, please let me know.
How many sessions
will I need?
This is perhaps the most common and yet most difficult to answer question of all. In short; it's impossible to say. It depends on many things such as what you are wanting to get from your therapy. I do recognise however, that this is an important question and in our first session we can look at how long you are able to commit to therapy, and work with that.
Are you fully qualified?
Yes, I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist, with a Postgraduate Diploma (level 7) in Integrative Psychotherapy. I have 4 years' experience working with a variety of clients with a variety of issues and continue to develop as a practitioner undertaking regular CPD/additional training.
Are you a member of a professional organisation?
Yes, I am an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Is there a waiting list?
Typically, you will be offered an appointment straight away. At times when my practice is full there will be notices on my website and any directories I am listed on.
What will happen during my first session?
In our first session we will set out the landscape for your therapy. We will discuss what brings you to therapy, and set some goals for your therapy as well. Each session after that will be yours to use the time to explore thoughts, feelings and any issue(s) you may be facing.
How often do I need to see you?
I see the vast majority of my clients for 50 minutes, once a week. This is ideal for consistency and is particularly useful in the early stages of therapy, as our therapeutic relationship develops. There is some room for flexibility however, as not everyone is able to commit to such regular therapy. If you are unable to commit to weekly therapy, don't be put off! Simply book a consultation and we can discuss your situation further.
How do I get started?
Simply contact me by either giving me a call on 07764 000 304 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'M READY TO GET STARTED
Taking that first step can be daunting, but there really is nothing to be afraid of.
If you would like to call me so that we can have a chat, simply click the 'call me' button below. If you'd prefer to make contact via email, then click the 'email me' button.
Occasionally I am unavailable to take a call due being with another client. If this happens, please leave a voicemail or a text message and I will try to return your call the same day. If for any reason you would prefer I do not contact you, please specify this when you message.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Our initial discussion whether by phone or email, is about getting to know more. What do I mean by this? It is important for me to understand what you are needing, and for you to understand what it is that I am able to offer. Once we have established whether or not we think we can work together, then we can go about setting up your first session!
If for whatever reason you or I decide that we aren't best suited for working together, I have a list of well-experienced colleagues and other agencies that I may be able to refer you to; so even in the unlikely event that we aren't able to work together, all is not lost.
