If you would like support to overcome anxiety, depression, challenging life events, relationship difficulties, loss and bereavement or any other personal issue perhaps you would like to discuss how counselling might help.
I work in a non judgemental way with honesty and acceptance allowing clients to explore what changes they may like to make. I have fifteen years experience of working with a full range of issues with a wide range of clients from young people, individuals, couples and older people.
I am an integrative counsellor using psycho dynamic and person centred therapies incorporating Counselling for Depression and mindfulness based cognitive therapy.
I have a private practice in Hitchin where there is ample parking and a local bus service. I also work for two other local organisation in Letchworth and Stevenage.
