About me

Are you finding life difficult at the moment, stressed or anxious at work or home? Or are things just getting on top of you? Talking can help you move to a more positive position and improve or resolve issues you are facing.

                              Deciding which counsellor is right for you can be daunting. 
                                  For this reason, I offer a free 20 minute consultation.
                                              This can be face to face or by phone.

Over several years of counselling with people of all ages, I have come to appreciate how the experiences in our formative years as children and young adolescents are so significant in how we respond to events in our day-to-day lives. I have experience working with many of the different issues that come up in every day life such as anxiety, depression, trauma and bereavement.

I work intuitively with you to help clarify your thoughts and feelings and enable you to see things from a different perspective. My main objective is to work with you to understand yourself better, and to allow you to move forwards with your life.

Located in the centre of Hertford, my office offers a neutral setting for discussions in a discreet and friendly environment, with free parking. For further information please visit my website or contact me.

      "Dear Vincent, just wanted to say Thank You so much for your support with George at his sessions. He found you very easy to get along with and related to you and your advice really well. He is now in a place that he can work with the strategies you have put in place together. He enjoyed his time with you and said it was easy to relax in your company and the surroundings." George (15-years-old), May 2016

                                "It has been liberating to be able to share my feelings with someone
                          without (too much) fear and you have helped me to look at things differently,
                                                which I value more than you probably appreciate!"
                                                                      Ms N, Herts, Oct 2015

                              "Thank you Vincent for the work we have done on my acute anxiety
                            of travelling in confined spaces.
I'm now able to control my emotions and
                                          behaviour to the extent that I can relax when flying."
                                                            Ken Rowswell, Potters Bar

                                    "Thank you Vincent, I found the experience of counselling
                                          with you incredibly grounding and life-changing."
                                                        Robert Branson, St Albans
