About me

Many people think going to therapy is about focusing on what is making them unhappy but it is also an opportunity to take time out to discover what really inspires you and brings you joy. As a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist I am here to offer a sanctuary - some time for yourself in which to explore in depth what it is really like to be you.

I believe taking time out of our lives to step back and take stock is really important. I have been trained to help you explore your experience and will support and guide you to find a new perspective and direction.

I am a Psychosynthesis counsellor and psychotherapist. Psychosynthesis has been described as 'a psychology with a soul'. It recognises that each of us is on a journey through life that is both purposeful and meaningful, even though at times it can be difficult and painful.

I have practice rooms in both St Albans and Finchley, if you feel I can be of assistance to you please do not hesitate to call or email for a relaxed discussion about what you are seeking.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I have an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy from the London Institute of Psychosynthesis. I am regularly supervised and undertake continued professional development to ensure best practice and high standards.

As well as private practice I have been a trustee and support worker for Hertfordshire Post Natal Illness Support. I have eight years experience working with postnatal depression and the challenges of parenthood. I have counselled in a mental health setting for Spiritual Care in the NHS and I have worked with addictions as a counsellor for Hertfordshire Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service and at Carer Support in Barnet.

I am an accredited member of the the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide by their code of ethics and standards.

Accessibility

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.
