About me

Hi, welcome to my profile.  I am a BACP Accredited, Person Centred Therapist covering Hertfordshire and Essex borders. I have nearly 20 years experience working therapeutically across the local community and within local authorities.

I work with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures with very different levels of need; ranging from extremely vulnerable and traumatised adults to professionals and staff experiencing more general work or family stress.  I also provide supervision for other therapists and staff working within caring professions.  As well as my work with adults, I also work with young people experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties. This work can also extend to family relationships and parenting support.

I am also a qualified Couples Counsellor for both same sex and mixed sex relationships.

I offer a safe, secure environment for you to express yourself, explore your difficulties and/or work towards uncovering your full potential.  Counselling gives you the opportunity to process trauma, resolve conflict, heal your wounds and find healthy, fulfilling pathways to enrich your life.  If you are unsure whether counselling is right for you or you have any questions about any aspect of my services then please feel free to contact me to discuss things.

My therapy room is situated in central Hoddesdon, which has plenty of on site free parking and is by a main line bus stop.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

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.
