About me

You’re probably wondering how you got here, searching through profiles to find the right person who can help you. Maybe you’re feeling low, maybe life just feels all too difficult now. I can help you see a way through, we can work together, discovering what brought you here, at a pace that feels right for you. By exploring your concerns together, in a safe, confidential and supportive space, we can gain insights into issues that may have arisen from the past or present. Armed with these insights I can help you move forwards with your life; able to make the positive changes you need to live your life to the fullest.

Our sessions will be 50 minutes at an agreed time and day each week, with an initial assessment to discuss your needs and whether working together is right for you.

I work from several locations, which include Watford, Leavesden Green,Abbots Langley and Bushey so I can offer you some choice and flexibility to suit your needs.

Further information

As well as my private practice, I work with a local charity, offering counselling to young people aged from 11-25 years on a one-to-one basis and in groups, where I co-facilitate a regular art media workshop. I have also worked with Age UK offering counselling to people in their own homes over the age of 50 years, with a range of issues. I have also worked with MIND as a support worker, providing support to individuals in the community to maintain wellbeing, independence and social inclusion.

I have gained extensive experience working with both adults and young people presenting with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, obsessive compulsive disorder, low self-esteem, relationship issues, abuse and trauma, bereavement, living with a disability or disorder and carers supporting partners or relatives suffering from a range of mental and physical health issues including dementia and Alzheimer’s.

My work with autistic spectrum disorders has given me a special interest in this area.
