Hello and thank you for visiting. Are you struggling with challenges in your life and feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Counselling provides a way to overcome our struggles by making sense of why we feel this way and learn how to better cope and move forward. When deciding on which therapist to work with, it is especially important to feel a connection with the therapist you choose.
I am an experienced, person-centered counsellor and offer long and short-term counselling. We would meet for an initial assessment appointment to talk about what has brought you to counselling and decide whether we are comfortable working together. The sessions are held weekly and last 50 mins. I run practices in Watford and in Bushey, Hertfordshire. I aim to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and safe service. I am a naturally empathic and caring person and hope to give you the tools to deal with whatever brings you to the counselling, so that you may live your life in a healthier, more positive way and realise your full potential. I also specialise in Infertility and Miscarriages.
Open-ended counselling which we may review from time-to-time.
Counselling for ladies and men over the age of 18 years.
My counselling sessions last for 1 hour.
Training, qualifications & experience
- I hold a Professional Diploma in Person-Centered, Gestalt Counselling from The Albany Centre in St Albans.
In addition to my private counselling practice, I have worked as a voluntary counsellor for a Bereavement Counselling Service in North West London.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
