About me

I offer a safe confidential space for you to feel heard and accepted. If you need support working through current or past issues, or if you are feeling unhappy, but the reasons are less clear, you are welcome to get in touch. Initial session FREE

There are times when we all need some help or support.  I can offer you safe and caring  support through counselling.  Pressures of life, responsibilities, changes, loss, or unresolved past experiences can all have an impact.  When our personal resources have been used up, even a small amount of extra stress may feel overwhelming.

Help with issues including:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • stress
  • self-esteem
  • confidence
  • relationships
  • change
  • grief
  • loss
  • identity
  • trauma

What I offer:

  • a confidential space where you can be heard
  • a safe place to focus on your concerns and needs
  • support and compassion in understanding your own issues and finding a way forward

My approach:

As an Integrative Counsellor, I combine Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approaches.  In this way I offer a safe and compassionate therapeutic relationship, together with support in understanding and focussing on your individual needs and concerns, so that we can work together to help you move forward.

I offer short term counselling and longer term counselling as needed.

Free initial 30 minute session:

I believe that trust in the counselling relationship lies at the heart of effective therapy. So it is important for you to feel comfortable with your choice of counsellor.  With this in mind I offer a free initial 30 minute session.

Ongoing counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and cost £45 per session.

I am based in Tring and Mentmore, near Leighton Buzzard:

The quiet, comfortable therapy rooms are within easy access from Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury, Aston Clinton, Dunstable, Berkhamsted, Wendover and surrounding villages.

There is free parking on site in Mentmore (LU7) and the Tring room is close to the town centre.
