About me

I am an experienced Counsellor based in North Hertfordshire I am an Integrative approach Counsellor drawing on theory, concepts, techniques and interventions from various approaches such as Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Existential, Transactional Analysis, Internal Family Systems and Systemic therapy.

I also specialise in the treatment of addictions, anxiety and depression disorders as well other issues and presenting problems relevant to counselling and psychotherapy.

I would also describe myself as being compassionate, kind, patient, completely accepting of others and totally non-judgemental, regardless of circumstance. I am also a very good listener and also very empathic. I work in a collaborative relationship with my clients in an equal partnership, in order to promote autonomy and adopt a strong team ethic in the counselling setting to problem solve, identify unconscious thought processes, manage and modify difficult memories, thoughts and feelings and to work towards a satisfactory outcome for the clients that I serve.

I also have the utmost respect for the clients I am working with and I am highly protective of the information that is shared in the counselling room regarding confidentiality and anonymity.

I am also proficient in facilitating group therapy, individual therapy and couples therapy.

I normally work in a counselling room inside a Church building but would be prepared to use other suitable locations and settings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I spent 2 years at the University of Hertfordshire Studying the Psychodynamic approach to counselling, obtaining a Certificate in Higher Education for Counselling.

I then went on to graduate from the University of Roehampton with a BA (Hons) qualification in Integrative Counselling.
