About me


Hello and thanks for looking at my profile.

I am an experienced qualified counsellor and work from my private practice based on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley.

Since qualifying over 10 years ago I have worked with many hundreds of clients offering long and short term counselling. Supporting clients to make sense of their lives in the exploration of what it means to be human.

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.

I have learnt so much from my clients and my own experience about what it means to be human. It's not always easy as we try to navigate our way through life and I believe strongly that everyone could benefit from counselling. 

In our first session we can discuss your reasons for coming and how we might work together. Sometimes people seek therapy not being clear what's wrong or what they want from counselling, that's OK too! We can be with the not knowing as we explore together.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

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.
