About me

I am now offering some Face to Face sessions alongside Zoom.

Hello and thanks for looking at my profile.

I offer long and short term counselling from my private practice based on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley.

Counselling offers a unique relationship in a safe confidential environment without judgement to explore and make sense of your life experiences, relationships, or feelings about yourself.

You maybe seeking counselling for many different reasons which may include: anxiety, depression, emotional and physical trauma, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, anger and difficult relationships. Feelings of disconnection from self and others, or feeling disillusioned with life; lacking purpose and meaning.

It's not always easy as we try to navigate our way through life and I believe strongly that everyone could benefit from counselling.

First session
In our first session I will go through some questions to get some background on your life experiences and discuss your reasons for coming and what you might like to be different.  Also importantly to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you and if we will work together.

Sometimes people seek therapy not being clear about exactly what's wrong or what they want from counselling, just a sense that things are not quite right.  That is also OK, we can explore that together.

Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone if you have any questions or would like to arrange an initial appointment.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

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.
