About me

I am an integrative Counsellor working in Hertfordshire and London. If there is something that you would like to talk about, I can offer a quiet, comfortable and confidential space to listen to you.

As a member of The Relational School and The Society for Existential Analysis, I have a strong belief in the power of the client-counsellor relationship to be transformative and the awareness of choice to be a fundamental ingredient of change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have taken a long route to counselling with a four year training encompassing a Psychodynamic Foundation from HBCF, a University Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from Hertfordshire University, an accredited Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from CPPD, and finally an accredited Advanced Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from CPPD.

I can deliver Short Term focussed therapy and CBT.

I have an up to-date DBS certificate and am fully insured.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).
