About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced UKCP Registered Psychosynthesis Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a Private Practice on Old Stevenage.

I aim to offer a safe, confidential and trusting space for you to explore and identify what is distressing you, your thoughts and feelings in relation to this without judgement or criticism, with a view to reaching a positive outcome for you. I work with warmth, humour and imagination.

Counselling may be of value to you if you are:

  • Having difficulties in personal/professional relationships
  • Dealing with life crisis or a time of change
  • Having a difficult relationship with food/your body;
  • Depressed - feeling life is hopeless
  • Bereaved - coping with loss
  • Self-damaging, addictive or compulsive patterns of behaviour

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 20+ years experience working with both individuals and couples.

My early training and experience was with National Marriage Guidance Council (now Relate) where I gained N.M.G.C. Accreditation.

I then trained with the Institute of Psychosynthesis. I gained a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and graduated with a P.G. Dip in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapeutic Counselling - Middx University.

I also hold a Diploma in the Supervision of Counsellors - C.S.C.T.

Further information

I believe that we all have the potential to overcome the pressures and challenges that life presents. At these times we may feel a sense of isolation and despair which does not have to be faced alone. Counselling is a collaborative relationship where we take a journey of discovery to explore where you are in life and what blocks you from getting where you would like to be.

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.
