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.

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.
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.
