About me

I’m Mary, a very warm welcome to you. I’m a psychotherapist and very fortunate to work out of my private practice in beautiful Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

I take an integrative approach which enables me to work with each individual in a way that is unique to them and their needs from therapy. My approach also serves to integrate thoughts, feelings and bodily experience. I’m an honest, professional, reflective, open and curious practitioner and I provide a safe confidential exploratory space. I have worked with a diverse range of clients and issues. Issues including relational problems, stress, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, work related issues, domestic abuse, childhood trauma, birth trauma and bereavement. I undertake ongoing professional development.

I have worked within national charities supporting people with long term medical conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease cancer and Aids. I have also been an associate counsellor with MIND and a domestic abuse charity.

I offer an initial free 50 minute consultation session during which we can explore what brings you to therapy. It will also provide an opportunity for us to get a sense of whether we will feel comfortable working together.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Further information

I am a qualified and experienced integrative psychotherapist. I work with adults from diverse backgrounds on a wide range of issues in a relational and professional way. I offer long term psychotherapy and short term counselling.

Long Term

Long term psychotherapy allows for more space to explore how patterns of self beliefs acquired in the past may be underpinning current difficulties and help to bring about positive change. This is most suited to people who, for example have or are experiencing ongoing problems in establishing relationships, have had abusive childhood or adult experiences or have experienced loss.

Short Term

Short term psychotherapy is aimed at addressing a particular issue arising in the present and getting in the way of your daily life. For example this can be very effective in helping to make important decisions by exploring your issue in a safe confidential space, to bring some clarity to your thoughts and help to plan a way forward.
