About me

Relationships are not always easy. Are you looking for someone to talk to in confidence? I am a Relate trained counsellor specialising in relationship counselling. Relationships come in many forms: partnerships, marriages, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, friendships ........I offer couple and individual counselling in central Harpenden. My aim when working with you is to build up a strong therapeutic relationship based on safety, respect and empathy. I hope this will help you to explore your current position and move forwards towards a stronger sense of personal wellbeing and more fulfilling relationships. I work within a well-established framework, drawing on psychodynamic, systemic and cognitive behavioural (CBT) therapies in order to tailor my approaches to meet your individual needs. As an accredited member of the BACP, I am bound by its ethical code for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy. I attend regular training events to ensure my skills and knowledge remain up to date. If you would like to discuss how counselling might help you then do please get in touch.

Getting started

If you decide to contact me (by email, text or phone) I will endeavour to answer you as soon as possible. We can then set up an initial session where we can discuss the issues you bring and consider what you hope to get out of counselling. If you feel happy to continue we can make arrangements for ongoing sessions. I will provide you with a clear contract for our future work together.
