About me

I am a BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor/psychotherapist working from my private practice in Buntingford and I see children, adults and couples on a one to one basis for counselling and psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy and counselling is helpful for many emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as providing the opportunity for personal growth.

The therapy involves regular, weekly and confidential sessions, during which we can explore how your present and past experiences can influence current thought processes and patterns of behaviour.

Once we have met for the initial assessment, I can discuss with you a recommendation of approach. This may be brief therapy of a fixed number of sessions or longer term work for deep seated and long standing difficulties. I am also able to offer CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), which is very beneficial for OCD and anxiety related disorders.

Previously, I have been an assessor and counsellor at the Enfield Counselling Service, a therapist for the Grief Encounter Organisation where my work focused on bereavement; and a therapist working in schools, children's centres, hospitals and secure units.

Elsewhere I set up and ran a counselling service at The Enfield Carers Organisation where I initiated short term work for individuals who required support for each of their personal situations.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
