I am a psychotherapist and I offer both short and long-term therapy for adults, young adults and couples. I am also a mother with children in their twenties.
When life can sometimes feel challenging, stressful and even unbearable and when talking with friends or family isn't an option (or may even be making things worse for you), therapy may be the answer.
I provide a safe and confidential face to face psychoanalytical therapy service and I work with the issues and needs brought to me by my clients.
I endeavour to help you explore your problems and understand them more fully, both in the context of your present and your earlier life experiences. I also aim to help you find ways to manage your issues more effectively, and, where possible, to make changes that will enable you to improve your life and your relationships.
I have consultation rooms in Hertford and in SG2. Please make any further enquiries via the counselling directory website
Training, qualifications & experience
- I have a diploma in Psychodynamic and Humanistic psychotherapy

As well as working with clients at my practice in SG2, I also work at GP surgeries in Hertfordshire where I counsel patients in short-term therapy.

I am an accredited member of the BACP and UKRCP.
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.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
