It’s a scary step to acknowledge that you need counselling and an even scarier step to pick up the phone ... but a small investment of your time can make a big difference to the quality of your life. My role is to enable you to discover that for yourself.
I have been in practice 19 years seeing individuals and couples. I am a MBACP Senior Accredited practitioner following a code of ethics and professional practice. I specialise in both short and long term work for a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, relationship issues, couples counselling, stress, work-place issues, depression, bereavement, trauma, addiction (drug and alcohol), abuse and eating disorders. I also supervise counsellors and develop and deliver be-spoke management training courses.
Located just 5 mins from Junction 9/10 of the M1 so easy to get to from Luton, Hemel, Harpenden, St.Albans etc.
My counselling career originally began with voluntary work after pursuing a commercial career and running my own business. Finding this voluntary work very rewarding, I made a personal decision to pursue counselling as a full-time occupation.
Since then, my work has spanned working for various charities, firstly providing long-term therapy for adults under two local authority funded agencies. Since 2001, I broadened into providing therapy for a broad range of issues on a private basis.

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.

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).
