I am an empathic and experienced Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counsellor and Supervisor, with 20 years experience of working with individuals, couples and relationship issues within families, where there have been emotional distress, trauma and loss. This includes working in various settings such as Primary Care, Private Practice, Substance Mis-use and Addiction Treatment Services. My main fields of work and interest are in helping others to discover their true selves and move beyond their difficulties. I facilitate improved relationship with self and others, increased self-knowledge, self-esteem and coping strategies, along with better communication and reconnecting with purpose, meaning and value in life after difficult times, whenever that has been.
I like to include creative methods of self expression, such as art making and writing, in our work together. This can include connecting with the outside and animals, as well as talking, as a means to self discovery. I am experienced in helping those to recover from all addictions, including behavioural ones, such as, eating dis-orders and gambling, and obsessive compulsive disorders.
I work gently and kindly with those who are recovering from complex issues of grief and loss, trauma and childhood abuse and low self worth. I will adjust the pace of work to suit you, always being guided by you, and sensitive to your individual process and journey. Together it is my experience that you can move towards re-connecting with the person you were always meant to be and to reconnect with who you really are. Equine Facilitated Therapy, (where horses help people with their well-being and mental health - no riding is involved), locally to Hertford can be part of the therapy offered.

Individual Member BACP
BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
