I am a professionally qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide confidential support to adults with a wide range of psychological and emotional needs from my consulting room located between Rickmansworth and Chorleywood.
I am committed to work alongside you, to explore and give meaning to your experience as an individual, within the family and in other significant relationships in your life.
I will provide a secure therapeutic space that feels safe enough for you to make sense of difficult and painful feelings. I hope to help you grow, to build upon your strengths and abilities, to increase greater self-awareness in the discovery, or rediscovery, of a more authentic self.
Acknowledging that this can take time, especially when confidence has been lost, when people have been hurt and let down in life. I intend to create an environment where healing and repair can occur to help restore belief and trust in the world.
In co-creating a new emotional bond between client and therapist, lies the opportunity to reverse the impact of past difficult relationships and experiences, to help move you towards a more secure way of thinking and relating.
The quality and consistency of the therapeutic relationship lies at the heart of my work where I strongly believe healthy change can occur.
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. I can then offer an initial meeting to enable us to get to know each other before embarking on a longer arrangement. I offer both long and short term work.
