About me

I am an experienced BACP Senior Accredited counsellor and psychotherapist working with people of all ages but with a special interest in teenagers and young adults.

I work in an integrative way and am based in Harpenden and St Albans offering daytime, evening and weekend sessions.

As an experienced qualified counsellor I can help you talk through difficult situations in a safe, supportive, confidential environment. Just by talking through your issues you can often sense a feeling of relief.

I have a background working with teenagers in a secondary school environment for ten years and also recently have returned to adult based work with a range of issues.

Adults

Adults come with a range of issues including anxiety, bereavement, low mood, work related stress, relationship difficulties, self dislike, trauma and many more. Sometimes you do not really know what the problem is but you just do not feel right. Talking through your issues may give direction and insight. by working alongside a counsellor you can actively change your thoughts. Powerful feelings of sadness, worthlessness, emptiness, disconnection and inadequacy can affect the way we present ourselves and the way we interact with others. These feelings can have a huge impact on how we work, our relationships and sense of self. By working together in a holistic manner a therapeutic relationship can start to rebuild these areas of your life.

Teenagers and Young Adults

I have ten years experience of working with teenagers in a secondary school setting. This sort of setting can be a source of great pressure and stress for young people and having someone to talk to can be an outlet for this.

Teenage years are often years where thoughts and feelings are complex. I can help provide structure and clarity to such difficult thoughts and feelings.

Social pressures are becoming more of an issue to young people today with social media exaggerating any pressures we may feel or be exposed to. Again I offer a safe confidential space to talk about your concerns. Confidentiality is respected - you parents needn't know the content of the sessions.

Initial Contact

At the first session I will find out about you and your background and you can ask any questions about the way I work. At the end of the session you can decide if you wish to continue with the therapy and if you do we will arrange future sessions.

I work in rooms in Harpenden and St Albans - both within walking distance of the station and parking is nearby. If you still have questions feel free to contact me by phone or email. Tel 07767 883414
