We can all experience times when life seems a struggle for us, sometimes we are not even aware of the cause, we just have that feeling of being overwhelmed, stressed or anxious, either at home or at work.
Whatever your reason for considering counselling, my aim is to provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place to explore your feelings. Working together to find tools that will help you manage things differently.
If you are unsure whether counselling is right for you or whether it is the right time, please get in contact, I can offer a one off Initial Assessment at a lower cost, giving us both the opportunity to meet with each other, before committing to any ongoing sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor, working with adults and young people. My training and continuing professional development enables me to use creative work and Mindfulness in order to enhance our work together.
I am a partner in a practice providing both long term and short term therapy in Stotfold. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework.
I am also a tutor at North Herts College, delivering counselling training for students.
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.

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).
