There are several reasons people decide to come to therapy, you may feel stuck, have experienced recent loss or change, want to gain an understanding of certain behaviours or generally do not feel like you are living the life you want to.
I create a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to talk about anything you feel is causing you problems. Together we can explore the issue and work towards a greater level of self-awareness that will bring about change.
I use different approaches and techniques based on how things work for you. This means therapy led by you and tailored to your needs.
I offer both short and long term counselling.
It can feel very daunting making that initial contact but the fact you are here reading my profile is a positive sign. Counselling can unlock endless human possibilities and support you to become the person you hope to be. I am a qualified member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer therapy to adults and young people.
Choosing the right counsellor is very important so please feel free to call me for an informal chat to explore if we feel we can work together.
I see clients in my private practice in Hertford. This can be reached by Hertford East and Hertford North train stations.
I also offer online and telephone sessions.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

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).
