It can be very difficult sometimes to talk to people we know about problems and difficulties that arise in relationships, coping with daily life, or the emotional distress that you may be experiencing. Counselling can help explore problems, symptoms and coping strategies with anxiety, bereavement, bullying, anger, relationships, low self-esteem and self harm. Life can sometimes feel overwhelming, frustrating or sometimes hopeless, and in these times counselling can be a very effective way of helping us cope and develop self-awareness.
I offer secure online and telephone counselling for individuals above the age of 18 years old, and offer a free 35 minute introductory meeting via Zoom or telephone, where we can discuss therapy and the support you require. As an integrative therapeutic counsellor, I am able to adapt therapy for you, the individual client. You will be encouraged to open up and explore your world and feelings in your own time, in a non judgmental, secure, and supportive space.
Before setting up Swan Therapy Counselling Services I have experienced offering counselling in various organisations within Hertfordshire which include Watford Women's Centre and Hertfordshire Mind Network.
Please feel free to call, text or email me. Alternatively you can use the contact form on my website.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
