About me

Are you experiencing anxiety, intrusive thoughts, low mood or low self esteem?

Maybe you have been struggling with negative thoughts or feelings about yourself or something you have been though in the past, and are finding it hard to change this or move forward.

In the past you may have been able to work through things yourself and were able to help yourself through, but now you are struggling to move on and may feel struck and trapped by your feelings. Counselling can help you process your thoughts and feelings to find the root cause of what is going on for you. By gaining a better understanding in yourself and what you are experiencing, you can start to feel better and less confused and alone.

Through Counselling, you can start to make sense of what is going on for you, work through the issues you are experiencing, make long lasting changes, build stronger relationships, find new ways of coping and start moving forward with your life.

I have over 5 years experience in helping people overcome the difficulties and issues they are facing, to become stronger in themselves and improve their mental health. I have worked in  counselling agencies where I have supported people with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addictions, eating disorders, PTSD and trauma. 

I now run my own counselling service located in Hemel Hempstead. Myself and my team are all professionally trained and have a wealth of experience working with adults, adolescents and couples and work with many areas including: anxiety, low mood, depression, trauma, realtionship problems, abusive relationships, past childhood trauma and bereavement.

Please see our website for more information www.thecounsellingpractice.co.uk 

I understand how daunting finding a counsellor can be. If you would like to discuss your counselling needs before booking an appointment, please call or email to arrange a telephone consultation, and we can agree a time to talk. 

We currently have daytime, evening and weekend, face to face and online counselling appointments available.

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.
