About me

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.

Should wish to ask any further questions or arrange an initial initial session please telephone 07990591713,please be assured that this number is confidential and any answer phone messages can only be accessed by myself. If I am unable to answer then I will respond to your call as soon as possible.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
