About me

I am a person centred counsellor - helping my clients to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions within a safe confidential environment, offering warmth, empathy and unconditional positive regard, enabling you to find a way to move forward. I work Face to Face in Hertford, online or telephone. I am fully insured and a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I have experience with a diverse age range of clients 10 years through to 75 years. Clients who suffer from anxiety, low mood, panic attacks, couples therapy,  self-harm, bereavement, domestic abuse and sexual abuse, and everyday issues that they find overwhelming. 

Working with my clients to find a way that works for them, I believe that every individual experiences are unique to everyone.

Working with couples I help them through their issues within a setting that is non judgemental with impartial views, guiding them to help resolve and move forward.

If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
