About me

You may be looking at this page because you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, loss, bereavement, work related difficulties, loss of direction, historical or recent abuse and trauma, health or life stage challenges. Whatever has brought you here it is worth considering the potential benefits of psychotherapy or counselling to help you recover and to enjoy life again. If you are not sure whether psychotherapy or counselling will be helpful for you you are welcome to get in touch to explore your own concerns and discuss ways of addressing them, even if you decide not to proceed.

I am an experienced and established psychotherapist and counsellor offering short and long term therapy to individual adults and young people (from age 11) and to couples for a wide range of issues including bereavement, relationship difficulties and overwhelming feelings such as depression, anger, low self esteem and specific and generalised anxiety.

My private practice is based on the first floor of a discreet office building in the centre of Bishop's Stortford with plenty of public parking nearby.

I also offer clinical supervision to other therapists and consultancy to organisations.

I am an approved provider of counselling and psychotherapy funded by private health insurance companies including Bupa, Aviva, Pru Health and Cigna.

Corvid-19 - I am currently offering online and telephone sessions to provide therapy through the present period of social distancing.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Accessibility

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.
