About me

I have been a teacher at Berkhamsted School for over 20 years. During this time I have been a Housemaster for 10 years. As a Housemaster of a Day House (5 years) I oversaw the wellbeing of 50 pupils (Yrs 7 – 11) every day. This allowed me to gain a excellent understanding of teens/younger years and the causes of the potential build-up of problems including anxiety, depression, exam/academic pressures, friendship issues and pupils with low self esteem. In the last two years I have set up self-esteem clubs for Yr 7 and 8 as well as the Sixth Form in School.


I also ran the Boys Boarding House (Yrs 9 – 13) for five years and this allowed me to work with a diverse section of the school community including a number of nationalities including Chinese and Russian. I really enjoyed getting to know  different nationalities and the knowledge gained supporting these individuals to thrive in school was something I enjoyed immensely. With so many pupils in school, every relationship worked upon is the catalyst for potential change and I thrive on building these relationships. My desire to support such pupils therefore led to me returning to College for  three years and I am now a qualified Counsellor.


During this time I have also taken a keen interest in the wellbeing of the pupils with Special Educational Needs in School. I have helped pupils with ADHD, Dyslexia and ADD.


As well as being a teacher I have also volunteered for Bucks Mind and Time to Talk counselling children and adults in the local community. I feel it is important to give something back to the community and support those with mental health issues.


The basis of what I do is around the person centered approach (listening, being non judgmental and emphatic). I also use CBT, Transactional Analysis, coaching and solution focused methods to help meet the needs of the different individuals. I have used mindfulness techniques one on one and within groups of people.

I believe in building relationships with all the people that I meet, listening intently to their individual stories and letting their journey begin. I am a registered member of the BACP and working from my garden therapy room, online or by run/walk therapy I offer a safe space to start your counselling.

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.

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.
