About me and my therapy practice

I offer short, medium and long term counselling via Zoom from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

I work with clients in an atmosphere of support and trust.

I believe a warm, comfortable, confidential and non-judgmental environment helps you to explore and understand the complexity of your thoughts and feelings.

My approach is broad based as is my experience and together we can find both clarity and a way forward.

Practice description

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and qualified Clinical Supervisor, with over 40 years experience in health care. 

I originally trained and qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in my native New Zealand. I later settled in UK in 1971 and gained my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from University of Herfordshire in 2001. I worked in NHS as counsellor in GP surgeries for many years before setting up Private Practice in Hertfordshire.

My first session

I know anyone can find themselves in a situation where day-to-day life is becoming increasingly stressful and uncomfortable. 

Issues that affect us can include bereavement , relationship problems, family stresses, eating disorders, financial pressures or workplace issues. Any of these can lead to emotions such as anger, anxiety, loss of confidence, low spirits and feelings of helplessness and indecision.

You may find it helpful to talk to me to see how I might be able to help you make sense of your situation and together we can work towards an understanding of what makes you act and feel the way you do.
