About me

Anxiety? Depression? Whatever has brought you here I can help you get to the roots of your distress, understand them and find the inner resources that really changes things from the bottom up...."We are looking at the essential as the foundations of a house, and as invisible when all is well" - (H Krystal).......

As a psychodynamic counsellor I work with the unconscious - not as scary as it sounds! I talk about what arises in the relationship so that we both get a better understanding of what lies beneath today's difficulties, process them together, so that you leave counselling with a stronger capacity to manage distress in the future.

I am a psychodynamic counsellor in private practice and also and work with NHS patients.  I provide counselling Hemel Hempstead, (Redbourn end), in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment and work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. I also see clients in Luton or by Skype.

  • Bereavement/Grief and losses of all kinds.
  • Relationship difficulties, separation/Divorce
