I am a qualified and experienced Psychotherapist working privately in the centre of Hertford. My main approach is Psychodynamic where we will explore how past experiences may be affecting or influencing your life today. I offer a professional and authentic counselling relationship in which you will experience non-judgement, empathy and care. My private practice will give you a safe, comfortable and confidential space to address your struggles and discover the emotional balance and wellbeing you are searching for.
In addition to my private practice, I have recently spent time volunteering for a hospice, counselling adults/children affected by pre and post bereavement experiences of loved ones as well as supporting those facing terminal illness. I shall be returning to work as a counsellor in a secondary school in 2019 working with teenagers between 11 and up to 16 years.

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Areas of counselling I deal with
£45.00 per session. Some concessionary appointments are available for trainees or those on lower incomes.
We can meet for an assessment session to talk about how we can work together and if you feel that therapy may help you, then we can plan how many sessions you feel that you would like or need. Usually 6-8 weeks for short term therapy and anything over and above for longer term therapy.
Couples counselling £65.00 per session (1 hour).
