About me

I am an experienced and qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor.

I am passionate about my work and see each person as unique with their own needs. We will work at a pace which feels comfortable to you and anything you decide to bring to our sessions can be thought about. Everything you have to say matters and is relevant.

I offer a warm and empathetic approach in a comfortable and confidential environment. I believe this helps to establish an honest and reliable relationship which is important for you to feel able to talk freely.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by the Code of Ethics. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, as well as an MSc in Applied Psychology and BSc in Psychology.

In addition to my private practice, I have worked with different organisations, including St Albans Counselling Foundation, St Albans Bereavement Network and MIND.

I hold full Professional Indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS check.

Member organisations


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.

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.
