About me

I know that taking steps to see a therapist can be very daunting but I offer you a relaxed environment where you are able to talk through issues you are experiencing. I want you to feel safe in an accepting and non-judgemental environment.

As a therapeutic counsellor I am genuine and bring my own personality to the counselling room. What is explored in the counselling room is entirely up to you. I place great importance on allowing you the freedom to look at any or every facet of your life, from the earliest memories to the present day.

I am here to listen to you and support you through dark times. You are the expert of your life experiences and I want to know what that's like for you.

My philosophy... "Life Matters" - All my clients matter to me, you are important to me and I hope you experience this as well. No one should suffer on their own.

I am  based in Stevenage, where I have my own private practice. There is a driveway for parking and a bus route from the town centre. My private practice is a 3 minute walk from the peartree shops.

To book an appointment you can call me , text me or email me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I also welcome Student Counsellors who need support, understanding and help in dealing with the pressure of college and issues that will come up on a weekly basis.

        Further information

        My approach to therapy is Person-Centred which is based on the theory that is non-directive. I will not tell you what to do, I believe that every individual has the potential and ability to make the right choices for themselves, regardless of my own values, beliefs and ideas.

        I work to understand my clients experience from their point of view. I value my clients in all aspects of their humanity, while aiming to be open and real, helping a client to feel accepted and to better understand their own feelings. Over time a client will be able to reconnect with their inner values and a sense of self worth.
