About me and my therapy practice

"Heartfelt thanks for your help and support. I feel our sessions have helped me enormously during this difficult time." (Client testimonial.) 

I believe Counselling can be highly effective in enabling all of us to deal with issues of acceptance and change that we all encounter at times in our lives. 

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 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.
