About me

 I am a psychotherapist with many years experience having worked with a variety of people, from all over the world, in a range of settings including  a University Counselling service.  I  have worked  as a supervisor for a leading charity that provides counselling training for students.

I work long term and also offer short term counselling depending on your needs. I run my private practice from consulting rooms  in Northaw, Potters Bar.  The sessions takes place in quiet comfortable therapy rooms.  There is free parking on surrounding streets and easy access via public transport. 


About counselling


Counselling can help you explore and clarify whatever is worrying you. Everyone experiences difficulties and challenges at some point in their lives.  You may be feeling anxious, depressed,  experiencing panic attacks feeling sad or just not able to pin point exactly what you are experiencing at the moment.  You do not have to face these feelings alone. 

Talking through your issues with me can help you find new ways of thinking which can lead to great self understanding and change.  I offer a non judgemental compassionate space which is confidential and separate from work, social and family life. Key to my way of working is the importance of the relationship I will build with you so that you feel understood and heard.

I will help you gain a better understanding of aspects of your life and your relationships which you may not have been able to consider before, or which you may not have been aware of. This can be a way of gaining clarity and enabling change as well as relieving distress. Problems and difficulties that are not addressed are unlikely to disappear by themselves. 

If you would like to have an informal chat with me to discuss any questions you may have please don't hesitate to ring me on 07734 928110 or email me

In the past, I worked in a primary school to provide emotional support in the school environment.  This involved working creatively with children using materials to enable them to express their feelings through play.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information


My approach to therapy is based upon psychodynamic principles which means that therapy takes into account unconscious processes and repeated patterns as they are manifested in an individual’s present behaviour. Psychodynamic therapy helps to facilitate self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behaviour.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
