About me

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.


Member organisations

BACP
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.

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).
