I am a BACP registered counsellor working with individuals at my practice located in Hemel Hempstead. By helping you to understand yourself better, counselling can open up the choices you are able to take and pave the way towards a happier and more fulfilled life.
You may wonder whether 'just talking' can change anything. My experience is that it can. In the past, I've found this unique source of support can offer welcome relief during times of stress, as well as offering lasting benefits that go far beyond the actual length of the therapy itself.
Counselling offers you the opportunity get to know yourself better. By helping you make full use of your inner resources, it can help you tackle situations or decisions which might otherwise seem too difficult or painful to cope with. Release from anxiety can free your mind and energy to explore options and consider choices you may not have realised were open to you.
My training and experience as a counsellor has been with Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) models. My current practice draws on each of these with 'the relationship' as the integrating factor.
I understand that choosing the therapist who best suits your individual needs can be confusing and difficult. For this reason I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that we can discuss your concerns and answer any questions you have, before you make that decision. All enquiries are answered quickly, and treated with sensitivity and utmost confidentiality.
Before becoming a counsellor, I worked for many years in a corporate environment. I fully understand the stress and pressures this can bring. In particular the impact that issues such as work related stress, bullying or even redundancy can have on relationships and the ability to live and enjoy your life fully. I am also experienced in working with issues of substance misuse, as well as other forms of addiction.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and work strictly within their clear ethical framework, requiring the highest standards of confidentiality and respect.
I practice in The Old Town, Hemel Hempstead and in Bovingdon, both have easy access to the A41, M1, and M25 (Junction 20). I offer sessions during the week and some evenings.
