About me and my therapy practice

Are you currently experiencing anxiety or stress in your life? Are you considering making changes, but are unsure? 

I believe Counselling can be highly effective in enabling all of us to deal with personal issues that many of us encounter at times in our lives. These issues can be related to anxiety and depression. 

The way I work is to enable you, the client, to lead the agenda and to explore any areas that you would like to. I can offer short term or longer term work, particularly using Person-centred and Psychodynamic methods, according to your requirements. I work with individuals and couples. 

I will offer a complimentary 30 minute introductory meeting, which can help you decide if you wish to proceed with counselling. 

I am based at our comfortable rooms in Harpenden town centre, Hertfordshire, which has great transport links. 

I have particular experience with the following Clients: 

Young people, aged 16-25

Carers and Older people
