A warm welcome to you. People seek counselling for many reasons, throughout different stages of their life. You may be feeling depressed, anxious, stuck, or overwhelmed, but there is help available.
I offer a non-judgemental, kind, and safe environment, where you can talk about what’s troubling you, and together we can work to gain clarity and insight into your problems.
My specialism is self-esteem issues for women. We live in a high-pressure world and many things can rock our self-esteem – a difficult childhood, a hurtful comment or a disappointing relationship. But self-esteem can be renewed and repaired and many of my clients report feeling significantly better after completing our counselling sessions together.https://cappuccinocounselling.com/about
Although I work integratively, I tailor my approach to each client. No two clients are the same, no two issues are exactly the same and I strongly believe that you are the expert on you. My role is to support you in exploring your issues, spotting patterns that could be holding you back and ultimately working with you in creating a more fulfilling and authentic life.
Currently, I offer face to face session in beautifully appointed rooms in the centre of St Albans, close to the shops and cafes. If you’d like to find out a little more about me, then please pop over to my website Cappuccino Counselling or contact me for an initial chat on 077857 19490 or email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a professional diploma in integrative counselling, and a BSc Hons in Psychology and Women’s Studies. Currently I work for the NHS in Hertfordshire, offering short term, solution focused sessions to patients. A role I've enjoyed for two and a half years.
My previous experience includes working as a counsellor for Mind in Mid Herts and an emotional support volunteer at Marie Curie.
I am a registered member of the BACP, which means I adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards. I only work with adults over the age of 18.
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.

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).
