About me

You may be looking at this page because you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, loss, bereavement, work related difficulties, loss of direction, historical or recent abuse and trauma, health or life stage challenges. Whatever has brought you here it is worth considering the potential benefits of psychotherapy or counselling to help you recover and to enjoy life again. If you are not sure whether psychotherapy or counselling will be helpful for you you are welcome to get in touch to explore your own concerns and discuss ways of addressing them, even if you decide not to proceed.

I am an experienced and established psychotherapist and counsellor offering short and long term therapy to individual adults and young people (from age 11) and to couples for a wide range of issues including bereavement, relationship difficulties and overwhelming feelings such as depression, anger, low self esteem and specific and generalised anxiety.

My private practice is based on the first floor of a discreet office building in the centre of Bishop's Stortford with plenty of public parking nearby.

I also offer clinical supervision to other therapists and consultancy to organisations.

I am an approved provider of counselling and psychotherapy funded by private health insurance companies including Bupa, Aviva, Pru Health and Cigna.

A colleague and I are collaborating to offer a service to families experiencing separation, divorce, loss and change called Stort Counselling for Families. This is available to any combination of individuals, pairs or groups of family members including parents, children, grandparents and other family members who wish to attend as appropriate.

Please feel free to ask for more information about this.
