About me

If you find yourself becoming increasingly anxious, depressed, worried, or experiencing mood swings by a current situation, counselling can help you.

You may sense that something is wrong, but cannot quite put a finger on it; feeling unable to share these feelings with family or friends, counselling can offer you a different place to talk about your problems.

As a fully qualified counsellor, specialising in working with people experiencing anxiety, depression and relationship issues; I will support you throughout your counselling, providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space, as we explore the difficulties that you are facing, so that you can start to understand and make more sense of them.

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

Poor Self-esteem
Bereavement and loss
Personal identity
Work related issues

By gaining a better understanding and awareness of yourself, you can start to recognise often repeated and unwanted thoughts and behaviours. This can then help you to identify new and different choices, enabling you to make the changes necessary to lead a healthier, more confident and fulfilling way of life

I passionately believe in the process and lasting benefits of counselling, and I do my best to demonstrate that enthusiasm and passion in my work with clients

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

If you would like the opportunity of discussing the issues that are affecting you before committing to regular counselling, please feel free to call or e-mail me to arrange an initial session. Regular sessions are arranged on a weekly basis for 60 minutes, at a time that is agreed between us.

I also offer counselling sessions via Skype.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor, with a BACP accredited Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling, both from the University of Hertfordshire.

I work individually with adults and adolescents (over 16) as well as couples. I am based in Markyate, (close to Harpenden, St Albans, Redbourn, Luton and Dunstable).

I also work for the highly respected Counselling team at the Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living and have previous experience of counselling within Her Majesty's Prison Service.

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):

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Have you considered the option of counselling via Skype?

It is simple to set up, free to use, offers flexibility, whilst maintaining confidentiality.

This could be a useful alternative should you be unable to attend a face to face session (eg due to work commitments), thus allowing us to maintain regular counselling sessions at a mutually convenient time.

My fee is £45 per 60 minute session; limited concessions may be available on an individual, discretionary basis (including counselling students).
