About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor based in Stotfold, Hitchin, Hertfordshire. I have my own office based at home, which is safe, private and comfortable. I currently offer daytime and evening appointments.

The Person-Centred approach is a non-directive approach that means you are at the very heart of the counselling session. I work at your pace and ensure we work on what you (the client) would like to work on. You will receive empathy and kindness in a safe, warm, non-judgemental space. Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings to help you gain self-awareness and greater clarity to help you move forward. Life can be so tough at times and it can be helpful to talk to someone outside of your family and to have time for just you. Sometimes just being heard can bring such relief.

People come to counselling for many different reasons; perhaps you are experiencing a loss or bereavement, struggling with your self-esteem, struggling to know who you are, or perhaps you just need time to work on yourself and reflect. Counselling can give you the time and space to talk these things through, as well as help to process events that may have happened in your life.

I offer a free, 30 minute first initial session in order to establish if we would like to work together.

Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2010, I have worked with adults with a whole range of issues and have worked in secondary schools with children aged 11 - 18.
