About me

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor, working with adults of all ages and cultural backgrounds. My private practice is based in Markyate, close to St Albans, Redbourne and Dunstable, where I can offer you a private, comfortable and confidential space to work in.

My approach to counselling is flexible, sensitive, respectful, and adapted to your personal needs.

I will support you while we explore the difficult and painful feelings you are experiencing, so that you can begin to make sense of them.Gaining this awareness can begin to empower you to make changes in your life that can lead to a healthier and more fulfilling way of living your life.

I am passionate about my work as well as the long term benefits of 'talking therapies' and am totally committed to making a difference to my clients' lives.

I also offer counselling sessions via Skype-please see below for more details (under 'other areas of counselling').

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified psychodynamic counsellor with a BACP accredited, Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling, from the University of Hertfordshire.

I currently work in private practice, based in Markyate and for the highly respected Counselling team at the Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living. I have also previously worked as a counsellor for Her Majesty's Prison Service.

I have particular experience and interest in working with issues around:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • stress
  • self-esteem
  • relationships
  • bereavement and loss
  • identity

I work with adults and adolescents (male and female), on an individual basis.

Dependant on the nature of your current problem, we can agree to work on a short or longer term basis, or alternatively, we can adjust to your needs as we progress; there is no limit to the number of sessions a client can receive, therapy is allowed to come to a natural end to meet the needs of each individual client.

I’m a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists: and adhere to the BACP ethical framework - this can be viewed by clicking this link (and includes detail on principles around confidentiality):

I’m committed to continuing my professional development and as such I regularly attend training events and workshops.

I hold an enhanced DBS check as well as private indemnity insurance

Other areas of counselling I deal with

If you are unable to get to me for a face to face session then you might want to consider counselling via Skype?

Online counselling has a number of advantages and is becoming increasingly popular. It is easy to set up and remains confidential. There is no need for you to travel to sessions, you can join me from wherever is most convenient for you - and if your work pattern is unpredictable, or you travel, then you can still meet me online for regular counselling sessions.

Therapies offered


My fee is £45 per 50 minute session; limited concessions may be available on an individual, discretionary basis (including counselling students).

My fee for an initial assessment is £30 (60 minutes)
