About me

Hello and welcome to my listing with Counselling Directory.  Please get in touch if you would like to see if I might be the right therapist for you.

I offer one-to-one counselling in a confidential, non-judgemental, therapeutic space to help you to find a positive way forward. I am experienced in working with adults of all ages, teenagers and young people age 11+.

Counselling can help with many of the challenging and painful situations we may encounter in life, from traumatic events and experiences, bereavement, grief, loss and change to the stress of student life, panic attacks, depression and overwhelming anxiety.

If you would like to, please email or text me to make an appointment for a free 20 minute telephone initial consultation: we can discuss the support you are looking for and see whether I might be the right counsellor for you.

Person-centred Approach

I am trained in the Person-centred Approach and this means that you, the client are the expert of you. I do not judge or label. I provide the confidential, therapeutic space and ethical, professional counselling that is empathic and respectful, so that you can move forward to a more positive way of being.

My experience

I am experienced in working alongside clients in bereavement, facing loss and change and I offer support to clients dealing with traumatic events, life transitions and overwhelming emotions and anxiety. Student life can be challenging and I am experienced in supporting young people with the stress and anxiety of exams, relationships and expectations, working in partnership to help explore strategies to help find a way more positive forward.

I am a founding member of The Berkhamsted Counselling Practice and I have volunteered as a Counsellor at The Hospice of St Francis, supporting clients in bereavement and pre-bereavement.

How I work

Our therapeutic work together will be either open-ended or short-term depending on your need. Our initial session will allow us to discuss your goals and ensure that my approach will be the best one for you.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such I abide by their professional code of conduct and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Further information

Walking talking therapy

We are blessed in Berkhamsted to be a stone's throw from the beautiful beeches and grassy meadows of the Ashridge Estate. It makes complete sense to me to combine harnessing the healing properties of nature with the therapeutic benefits of talking and so I’m delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to have walking, talking therapy sessions.

As with sessions in conducted in the therapy room, each session will last for 50 minutes.

We will meet at an agreed, safe location, that will offer us the levels of confidentiality we require for effective therapy while giving us the chance to work together in an outdoor setting, to explore and breathe, away from the hustle of everyday life.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
