About me

Therapy in person is usually the most effective way to work. However, for some, online video counselling can be very good, particularly if you live outside UK, or are anxious about social distancing. Either way, I'm here to hear you ....

I’m a Registered Member of the MBACP, and an experienced Psychodynamic Counselling Therapist working in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. I draw on Psychoanalytic, Integrative and Relational approaches to counselling therapy.

I help clients make connections by developing a greater understanding of the unseen patterns of behaviour that can underlie psychological distress. Often those patterns may have caused a multitude of issues such as depression, anxiety and panic, family issues, phobias, psychosis, and addiction.

Through exploring these patterns it is possible to address the life experiences they might impact on. There may be related issues concerned with trauma, difficult family dynamics, abandonment and loss, as well as a plethora of other uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives.
A dedicated practice of weekly therapy can help you make sense of any problems, developing insights and ways of resolving them. I attune my approach to respond to your unique situation and the experiences that have informed it. This can help you recover motivation, perspective, and reviving an essential joy in your life.

I recommend that we have an initial session to develop an understanding of your needs, and how I may best help. I mostly work with clients over the long-term, which helps to address the deeper, more complex roots of distress. However, I also offer short-term work, which can be effective.

I am available for weekday sessions during the day from 8am as well as evening up until 9pm.Weekend appointments are occasionally available on request.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a fully qualified counsellor. Having trained at The University of Hertfordshire between 2008 to 2012, I completed a diploma course in Psychodynamic Theory.

I then followed independent training until 2014, when I went on and successfully achieved a two year Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice at The Counselling Foundation in St. Albans.

I continued training with Middlesex University, gaining an accredited qualification in 'Together For Wellbeing’ in their Support Training Programme. Employed by The N.H.S. Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust, I spent three years working and supporting patients with a multitude of mental health and personality conditions.

Having seen clients at The Counselling Foundation in Luton since 2014, I continue working as a private practitioner in Hemel Hempstead.

I also have a B.A. (Hons) Degree in Design and Applied Arts (1998).

Member organisations

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.
