As your counsellor, I will offer you a safe, confidential space for you to be heard with empathy and respect. Current problems may stir up buried feelings from your past which I will help you to explore and understand. Our time-limited or open-ended work will allow you to work through and make sense of your difficulties by becoming aware of your defences and reasons
I have experience working with a vast range of mental health issues, such as, anxiety, low moods, depression, bereavement, sexual abuse, domestic violence, addiction, eating disorders which may be impacting your relationships and wellbeing. I have also worked with people presenting with personality disorders from teenagers, young adults, older adults and couples.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy based in Hertford. Having worked in the Financial Services in London for many years I decided to retrain to become a psychotherapist. Having had therapy myself in earlier life made me realise just how beneficial it can be and I wanted to be able to help others in a similar way.
I offer a non-judgemental and supportive environment to help you work through any form of problem or issue you may be currently facing. I have been trained in an integrative way although my approach in the way I choose to work is primarily in an existential way. Aiming to help you explore your lived experience, the choices you make in life and the struggles you may be facing.
Anxiety and stress are everyday factors in life, especially within relationships and I believe that therapy can help to manage and reduce the associated emotional pain and mental suffering.
The therapeutic process can enable you to emerge from times of anxiety and mental stress as a stronger version of yourself. The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor is facilitating change and I offer a warm, inclusive and empathetic environment. My aim is to help clients achieve a higher level of understanding in themselves and work through any difficulties they may be facing.
It’s common to feel worried or unsure about what to expect from therapy if you haven’t been before. I provide a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for us to explore together what you feel is negatively impacting your life and help you to work towards feeling happier and more fulfilled.

I am a warm, friendly person and a good listener, I have a very empathic understanding and vast experiences from my own personal life. This has shaped me to be the person I am today. Things from or childhoods and certain traumas, can have us acting out behaviours that can be damaging to us. I have experience working with relationship breakdowns, alcohol addiction. depression, anxiety and self harm. I have worked with adolescents and adults of all disabilities. I’ve worked a great deal with confidence building and low self esteem. I can help you recognise these behaviours and what triggers them. When we are suffering, it can feel a dark lonely place with no one to talk to. Anxiety sets in and we become overwhelmed, leaving us feeling depressed and unable to cope. We can start to develop certain behaviours like drinking too much or similar things to fix ourselves. I also have experience of the 12 step recovery program.
