About me

I’m an experienced Psychodynamic Counselling Therapist working in private practice in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. I draw on psychoanalytic, integrative and relational approaches to therapy, but believe that while theories are important, each person’s situation is also unique.

I aim to help clients to develop a greater understanding of the unseen patterns of behaviour that can underlie psychological distress, such as depression, anxiety, psychosis and addiction. In exploring these patterns it is then possible to address the life experiences they might relate to, such as trauma, difficult family dynamics, abandonment and loss.

Whether you’re having issues with relationships, suffering with complex mental health problems, or seeking personal development, I adapt my approach to respond to your individual situation and the experiences that have informed it.

I offer a low-cost first session to help assess your situation and needs. After that, I tend to work with people 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 and evening.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at The University of Hertfordshire between 2008 to 2012 including a Foundation Year and completing a two year course in Psychodynamic Theory.

I then took independent training until 2014 where I completed a further two years Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice at The Counselling Foundation in St. Albans.

I also trained with Middlesex University where I gained an accredited qualification for 'Together For Wellbeing' Support Training Programme. Working for 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.

Whilst now in private practice from home, I continue working for The Counselling Foundation in Luton and have done since 2014.

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