About me

I am a person centred counsellor, who offers confidential and empathic counselling in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

I offer short and long term counselling to adults, teenagers and children, from 7yrs, in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

I offer both indoor and outdoor counselling sessions as well as telephone and online counselling.

I aim to help my clients achieve positive change in their lives by working together to facilitate change, even when words or feelings maybe difficult to express.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a diploma in Person Centred Counselling in 2009.

I have spent many years working with predominately primary aged children, I also have experience with teenagers and adults.

I have particular experience working with children and young people who have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using social stories and playing to help them communicate their thoughts and feelings, while helping them to navigate life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
