About me

From time to time, everyone faces challenges and difficulties in their life but sometimes these can seem overwhelming. My work as an established psychotherapist and counsellor has seen me successfully help clients experiencing a wide range of such difficulties in their lives, either on a short or long-term basis.

My private practice is conveniently located in the town centre of Bishop's Stortford, close to ample public car parking and the bustling high street. It offers a safe, comfortable and confidential environment in which to explore how and why you feel the way you do and to help you to move forward in your life.

I have over thirty years experience of dealing with people undergoing crisis in their lives. My professional qualifications are in ‘Integrative Psychotherapy’, which allows me to draw from across the wide range of theories to find a way of working with you that best meets your specific needs. At the centre of my approach is an emphasis on you; working together to find a way that can realise all your life's potential.

In addition to my private practice I have also worked within a GP Practice and for a national mental health charity. I receive referrals from a national police support group for personnel who are experiencing work-related trauma or personal challenges.

I recognise that it takes a great deal of courage to look for professional help. Choosing the right therapist or counsellor can feel daunting. Please feel free to contact me if you would like any more information about my service, or to book a free introductory appointment to see whether my way of relating works for you.
