I am a professionally qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide support to adults and young people (16+) with a wide range of psychological and emotional needs from my consulting room located between Rickmansworth and Chorleywood.
I have helped people identify and make sense of various difficult feelings and anxieties, helping them to understand and manage their lives and relationships more effectively. I offer a safe, quiet and confidential space in which to encourage reflection by facilitating healthy change and emotional wellbeing.
I have a special interest in eating disorders and the major psychological impact this can have on both the sufferer and on parents and family members who are living with and supporting someone who is mentally and physically unwell.
Please feel free to contact me by phone or email to discuss any questions about how counselling may be of help to you and what your hopes and goals are from the therapeutic process. We can then arrange an initial session, after which we can decide if we are happy to continue working together. I offer both long and short term work.
I look forward to meeting you.
