About me

I am a friendly and compassionate counsellor that offers support from a safe and welcoming setting in Royston. I have been working with adults over the age of 21 in Royston for more than 7 years. I am a fully insured and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

We all struggle and feel low at times. Sometimes we know exactly what the problem is, other times it's not clear. I will work with you to get to the bottom of what is bothering you and help you to find a way to move forward. As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I have studied and practised a range of therapeutic approaches and would draw on the techniques that best fit with you. Every person is unique and has had different experiences. My way of working can respond to that.

I also offer small therapeutic support groups in Royston town centre. These groups have limited numbers and are set up to be safe, inclusive spaces where people can share experiences and support each other. Group counselling has many benefits and the effects can be experienced quickly.

Counselling can sometimes be challenging and hard work - and enlightening and life changing - but it's always a responsible choice and a step towards putting yourself first. I am honest and non-judgemental and am committed to working towards the best possible outcome for you.

Please get in touch to book a session or for an informal chat about how we could work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling from CPPD Counselling School in London.

I have undertaken various additional courses on trauma, including a 12 day training in Somatic Trauma Therapy with Babette Rothschild, internationally recognised body-psychotherapist and specialist in the treatment of trauma.

I hold a Certificate in facilitating group therapy from Re-vision.

I have an established private practice in Royston, Herts that has been running for 7 years and prior to that was a counsellor at West Essex Drug and Alcohol Service and at a women's health clinic in Camden, London.

Member organisations

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
