I am a qualified Counsellor specialising in working with children and young adults 11-18 years, I am also experienced with Counselling adults.
I have been working in a secondary school in Hertfordshire offering one to one Counselling and previously in an agency working with vulnerable adults with multiple issues and concerns.
I now offer a confidential, peaceful, safe space at my private practice, a place to be heard, to speak privately, to begin to explore feelings, thoughts, doubts, fears and troubles for example:
- Panic attacks
- Suicidal thoughts
- Self harm
- Exam stress
- Family difficulties
- Separation and divorce
- Loss, Bereavement, grief
- Low self esteem
- Lack of confidence
- Relationship, friendship problems
- Self image doubts, fears
- Lack of communication, not being heard
- Anger and self control
- Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD)
Sometimes life can seem confusing, overwhelming and difficult with no answers and can feel like a very lonely place where no one understands. We can feel stuck and do not know which way to turn, our everyday lives and daily routines can be difficult to manage.
Counselling can start to unpick where things have started to go wrong, to unravel our day to day struggles, by beginning to talk in a safe space where you will not be judged, within a safe confidential setting.
With this support it can help to see things more clearly enabling us to come to terms with our experiences and to facilitate change and to work towards an understanding of oneself and others to arrive at a place where there can be acceptance, to achieve a more balanced, healthy, positive outlook in life which is personal and achievable, when the time is right for you.

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.
