Hello to you. I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor and qualified COSRT psychosexual and relationship therapist.
I work with individuals and couples from many backgrounds and with a wide range of challenges. I run my own practice, St Albans Therapy from my home in Bricket Wood.
Previously I have worked at Woodbridge Therapy, St Albans Sexual Health Clinic (on behalf of LCC) and at St Albans SPECTRUM addiction centre.
For me, therapy is a partnership. I see us working together to discover, understand and make the changes that are important to you.
Everyone is unique and I believe in providing the right therapeutic style for your needs. There are no rules and there are no rights or wrongs, just a safe space to explore without judgement or prejudice.
I combine several counselling approaches in my practice including humanistic therapies, CBT and existentialist philosophies.
We all have the ability within us to change or to grow and to free ourselves from obstacles in our lives... sometimes we just need help releasing it.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
