About me

I am a BACP accredited and registered Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist.  I see adults, children and young people from the age of 4, practising in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.

I practise integrative therapy which means I am experienced in working with several approaches. Working integratively enables me to offer the type of therapy, or combination of therapies that is most appropriate for the particular needs of each client.

I am passionate about helping children and their parents, teenagers and adults, to move out of pain and confusion and lead happier and more fulfilled lives.

Over the years I have developed a special interest in working with the following issues:

  • Children and young people
  • Anxiety
  • Mental health issues
  • Abuse (physical, mental, sexual)
  • Self harm
