About me and my therapy practice
I offer one-to-one long-term and short-term counselling in a comfortable and confidential location in the centre of Hertford.
At times we may struggle to cope with life’s challenges. We may not feel in control as life deviates from the hopes, plans and expectations we once had. Talking to those around us can sometimes prove difficult. Reaching out to a professional counsellor can provide the necessary help and support needed to begin to make desired life changes.
Through development of a trusted and supportive therapeutic relationship, we will explore current difficulties, emotions and experiences. Together we will work towards a greater understanding of how past experiences can impact present-day living; affecting the choices we make, the way we relate to others and our repeated patterns of behaviour.
Taking the first step towards asking for support can be difficult but once that first step has been taken, you will hopefully embark on an insightful journey of self-discovery and begin to build self-awareness, take ownership of thoughts, emotions and actions and take the necessary steps to move towards a more positive change for the future.
I am a fully qualified, registered and professional Psychodynamic Counsellor. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma with Commendation in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from The University of Hertfordshire. I am a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully comply with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
As a member of Hertford Counselling Service, I offer a comfortable and confidential space located in the centre of Hertford. As well as my Private Practice, I have experience working with young people in secondary school and worked with adults at a North London Counselling Organisation for many years. I have experience of the corporate environment, having previously worked for large Financial and Retail companies and also hold a BA (Hons) degree.
My first session
An initial appointment will be offered soon after our first contact. In this session we will explore your reasons for counselling and the issues you wish to address. It will provide you with an opportunity to consider whether counselling with me may be of benefit to you. If you feel that we could work together, subsequent sessions will take place at the same regular time each week and last 50 minutes.
