About me

I am a BACP Senior Registered Counsellor and a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. My model of working is integrative.
For short term work I utilize my training in Transactional Analysis combined with a cognitive / behavioural approach.(CBT)
For longet term work my philosophic model is a combination of Attachment theory and Existentialism.
I originally trained as a Marriage Guidance Counsellor ( now Relate) in 1980.

I have continued to specialise in couple work, including, sexual, sexuality and abuse issues.

I have trained with Barnado's and work with all aspects and issues realted to adoption.

I worked as a counselor and principle lecturer in Counseling at West Herts College for 18 years and have counselled all ages from 16 - 88. I have also worked as a trainer for relate on the post graduate diploma.

I currently work for many EAP companies and I am also a registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist within the NHS and private healthcare.

I work in Berkhamsted in a GP practice and in Hemel Hempstead in my home.

I do not follow the traditional model of silent listening, with little interaction. Instead, I will listen and talk with you and help you to recognise choices that, before, may not have been apparent, and then, how those choices might be implemented.

I was motivated to become a counsellor, having myself been in need of counselling and finding the process extremely beneficial and life-enhancing.

I feel very privileged to have had a long career that has enabled me to travel alongside so many different people and situations. To know that I can make a difference in their level of confidence in becoming Themselves. My education, therefore continues.
