About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor offering counselling to individuals and couples. My aim is to provide a calm, non-judgemental space for you to talk, in confidence, about whatever brings you to counselling. It may be that a crisis has made you seek counselling or it may be something that you have been living with for a long time and it seems like the right moment to come and talk it through with someone outside your circle of friends and family. I can provide that space and time for you to go at your own pace without rush or agenda on my part.

Practice description

Since I qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor in 2007, I have worked in several different rooms in Ware, Hertford and Hoddesdon. I now work from a purpose built room in my garden which I hope you will find peaceful and relaxing. The access to my room is flat and there are no steps to navigate making it suitable for disabled or wheelchair users. There is a toilet available but this would be accessed by one large and one small step.

My first session

On our first meeting, I will explain to you how I work and what you can expect from me with regard to confidentiality, an explanation of my membership with BACP and what that means for you with regard to my working ethically. I will explain my payment and cancellations policy and further appointments should you wish to continue sessions. I will explain that there is not obligation to book further sessions with me after that initial session if you feel that I am not the right counsellor for you. Similarly, if I feel that I am unable to offer the type of counselling that you are looking for, we would talk about that and I would endeavour to help you find a different type of therapy.
