About me and my therapy practice

I’m an experienced Psychodynamic Counselling Therapist drawing on Psychoanalytic, Integrative and Relational approaches to therapy. I believe in the importance of analytical theories, whilst also using an intuitive approach. The uniqueness of each person’s life involves an equally unique way of moving forward.

Therapy in person is usually the most effective way to work. However, for some, online video counselling can be very good, particularly if you live outside UK, or are anxious about social distancing.

Either way, I'm here to hear you ....

Practice description

I’m a fully qualified counsellor. Having trained at The University of Hertfordshire between 2008 to 2012, I completed a diploma course in Psychodynamic Theory and operate a private Counselling practice in Hemel Hempstead.

I then followed independent training until 2014, and went on to successfully achieve a two-year Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice at The Counselling Foundation in St. Albans.

I continued training with Middlesex University, gaining an accredited qualification in 'Together For Wellbeing’ in their Support Training Programme. 

I worked for three years in the NHS, Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust, supporting patients with a multitude of mental health and personality conditions.

I worked part time with clients at The Counselling Foundation in Luton from 2014 to 2020.

I also have a B.A. (Hons) Degree in Design and Applied Arts (1998).

My first session

I generally offer in-person sessions, of course in accordance with the 2 meter social distancing guidelines. We can proceed on that basis (unless you do prefer online). Feel free to call or email then we can arrange an initial meeting to talk more about your needs for therapy.

I will respond and suggest one of several time / days so please let me know which suits. The initial session fee is £30 and the cost of our regular sessions can be decided during this meeting. I charge between £40 (concessions) to £60, and we can agree the amount based on your ability to pay, within these parameters.

There is free parking available in the street.

When arriving, you can go down the steps in the front garden, to the right of the house. You will see a wooden side door. I will come to let you in. Therapy time is 50 minutes. Please do not arrive earlier than the appointed time as I will be unable to answer the door.

The office where we will be in session is located in the back garden and there are some steps.

I look forward to hearing from you soon to set up this initial consultation.
