About me

Hello my name is Wendy and I am a person-centred therapist and BACP member.
You will be the person I am centred around to give my full attention to, without judgment, giving you my authentic self and empathic listening skills. I have a passion to listen, help and believe we all need to express ourselves and to be heard in a safe, comfortable and friendly environment. Let me step into your world and support your life’s journey whatever the problem or concern is, past or present. Together I can help you discover, grow and learn more about yourself to continue on your path leading to a fuller, deeper sense of being.

I am seeing clients face to face at LCC (Letchworth Counselling Centre) Monday and Wednesday evenings 5pm-9pm and working with clients on-line Tuesday and Thursday 10am-2pm.

Member organisations


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.
