Counselling and Psychotherapy in Nottingham
My name is Kate Juggins. Based in Nottingham, I'm a counsellor, psychotherapist and accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Since 1997 I've been helping people to tackle their difficulties and improve their lives - as an experienced counsellor and therapist, I'm committed to offering a warm, accepting and encouraging relationship, where people can learn to feel better.
Whether it's a general question about counselling and psychotherapy or support with a particular problem - I'm happy to answer any of your questions, and I encourage you to get in touch. On this site you'll find details of my professional credentials, and the range of services that I offer through "talking therapies". You'll read comments from the people who've reached out to me for help in the past - people who today are leading happier, healthier lives.
I hope that I can help you, too. Welcome to my website, and thank you for visiting.
It can be hard to admit that you're unhappy, and even harder to know where to turn. We often rely on our friends and family for support - but what about those issues that we don't feel comfortable sharing? You might feel guilty or embarrassed about your problems; perhaps you feel alone, or like no-one understands you? You might not want to burden the people that you love - those same people might even be part of the troubles. Whatever your reasons, suffering in silence can be a lonely, damaging and frightening experience.
Whoever you are, and whatever your background, talking therapies are a way to feel better - a healthy and sensible choice, to help you understand, manage and overcome the things that are holding you back. Whether it's daily stress, or the fallout from a major life event - I'll give you the time, the space and the support to find answers, and to make changes.
Counselling and psychotherapy allows you to share your problems, without judgement or discrimination. I will accept you, I will listen to you and I will help you.
I Can Help

Free Initial Meeting
Your first appointment is free of charge, with no obligation - it's a chance for you to explore your problems and decide if my service is the right one for you. Counselling is a commitment, so you'll need to work with someone you can trust, and someone who you believe can help. You might be nervous or unsure of what to expect - this meeting is a good chance for you to make your own mind up.
Contact me and I'll be happy to tell you more - from pricing and practicalities to the broader process of counselling and psychotherapy.
Men - Therapy Is for You Too!
Do you feel trapped by your problems? Have you been keeping pain to yourself, and losing touch with the life you'd like to live? From childhood, men are raised to show the world their strength, and self-reliance. - sometimes it's just easier to stay lost, rather than ask for help. But "being a man" doesn't have to mean suffering in silence, or facing things alone - you need and deserve someone to listen to you.
Today, 30% of people receiving counselling in the UK are male and that figure continues to rise. Don't be a victim of your pride and principles - it takes honesty, strength and courage to confront your problems, but I can help you meet that challenge.
Therapy for Relationships and Couples
Is your relationship threatened by a particular problem or a recurring issue? Are you struggling to understand or accept each other's point of view?
All relationships face challenges - Couples Therapy addresses those challenges in a safe, blame-free environment. Regardless of age, orientation, background or status, counselling can benefit all relationships. If you're encountering problems with trust, communication or your expectations of each other, this is the chance to sit down, to speak honestly and to learn about one another - to explore what you both need and deserve from your relationship.
Together we'll address your concerns. We'll look for solutions, to ensure that you both move forward with honesty and freedom. I won't judge, blame or take sides - my aim is to help you both find the answers that you need for a fulfilling, healthy future.
Beat Those Midlife Blues
Middle age has long been acknowledged as a challenging time. It's a period of transition and many of us struggle to make changes or cope with the upset they cause. It's also the point when we most often find ourselves asking "What's the meaning of it all?" If that sounds like you, then come and spend some time with me. There really is no point in worrying about what you can't change, but I will help you find the way forward where you can make change. I'll help you understand your deepest feelings and behaviours so that this stage of your life can be savoured rather than endured.
What Do Clients Say?
Here is what Hollie had to say after recently finishing therapy:
"You taught me to stand up and say "no" and not feel guilty. You showed me that I am worth all the things I wanted - love and acceptance - because you showed them to me."
"You never pushed me beyond what I was capable of accepting at the time and I always felt that you knew what it was like for me to be me."
"I know you will say that I did all of the work, but without you at exactly the right time, I would still be in that painful place. You helped me to live my life for the first time and to learn to enjoy it."
You can read other comments on the Testimonials page. If you find them helpful I hope you will get in touch with me - either for a chat or to arrange an initial meeting.
