About me

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor. I trained at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing as a Person Centred counsellor and have been counselling since 1996.

I have a practice, private and NHS clients, in Radlett, Hertfordshire within easy reach of Watford, Bushey, Edgware, Stanmore, Barnet, Elstree, Borehamwood, St Albans and North West London. I work with both individuals and couples. My work with clients varies from short to long term counselling covering issues ranging from anxiety, depression, relationships to matters of general and specific concern.

As counselling may be a new experience for you, if you do decide that you are interested in counselling after making contact I offer an initial session at a reduced cost without obligation. This session offers you the opportunity to explore in complete confidence any issue of concern to you. It also allows me the chance to find out a little about you and to see if you feel comfortable with me as a counsellor. If we decide to work together we agree a mutually convenient time and day for us to meet.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Person Centred Counselling - Metanoia Institure
Certificate in Couples Counselling - Metanoia Institute.
Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - Metanoia Institute
Counselling for Depression - IAPT Licence - Nottingham University
Level 5 Diploma in Sex Addiction Counselling

Additionally I have trained as a bereavement counsellor and worked as a volunteer bereavement counsellor for approximately five years.

I worked as a volunteer counsellor for the mental health organisation MIND for nearly eight and a half years. This counselling was all short term work and thus I have accumulated considerable experience in brief solution focused therapy.

As part of my ongoing professional development I attend many courses and workshops.

I have been counselling since 1996 and since that time I have gained tremendous experience in the range of issues I have encountered as well as counselling clients of varying ages from sixteen to ninety years old.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

MY personal approach to counselling is Humanistic and I use the Person Centred Approach as my theoretical base. In addition to this I use other modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis.  My approach is also very much based on the therapeutic relationship as I believe that it is the quality of the relationship between the client and the counsellor that determines a positive outcome for the client. 
A good relationship is built on trust, mutual respect, a good rapport and honesty and integrity and my goal is to bring all these into my work with clients.
I aim to work with my clients towards a mutually defined goal where both the counsellor and the client are equal and active participants in the therapeutic relationship.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
