Whether you have had counselling before or this is your first time searching for a counsellor can be a daunting task.Based in both Watford and St.Albans I offer day, evening and weekend sessions which last 50 minutes.
Depending on the level need of my clients and by mutual agreement in the initial assessment sessions can either be Open ended and as such have no set time limit or Time Limited which can range from between 6 to 12 sessions. My hope is that i can help in some way by offering a safe and confidential listening space in discreet town centre surroundings.
I have completed and qualified 2 year Post Graduate Diploma as an Integrative Counsellor. I believe that this gives me a range of different therapeutic approaches which i can apply to the needs of the individual.I have a number of years experience working with;anxiety, anger management, bereavement, substance misuse and addiction, depression,children and young adults and low self esteem.
My aim is to give clients the opportunity to work towards living in way in which they experience as more fulfilling and effective.Counselling addresses and seeks to solve specific problems and assist the client in making their own decisions, as a counsellor i strive to work with my clients to achieve personnal insight and self awareness in order that they can work through their feelings and improve their relationships with others.

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.
