About me and my therapy practice

Counselling or Therapy can help if you find yourself distressed or affected by experiences from the past, or with a current situation that you are finding difficult to deal with or understand. You may sense that something is wrong but cannot quite put a finger on it and feel unable to share these feelings with family or friends.

As a qualified counsellor with experience of working with people in distress, I will support you throughout your journey while we explore, perhaps difficult feelings that you are experiencing, so that you can begin to understand and make sense of them.

Gaining greater awareness of yourself, often by identifying and expressing feelings, recognising how you may normally react to them, can lead to alternative choices, enabling you to make changes necessary for a healthier, more confident and fulfilling life.

My approach to counselling is flexible, sensitive, respectful, and adapted to your personal needs.

I am an ardent believer in the lasting benefits that counselling (a 'Talking Therapy') can bring about and I do my best to demonstrate that enthusiasm and passion in my work with clients

I also offer counselling sessions via Skype.

I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor, with a BACP accredited Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling, both from the University of Hertfordshire.

I currently work in private practice, with adults of all ages and cultural backgrounds. I am based in Markyate, (close to St Albans, Redbourne, Luton and Dunstable).

I also work for the highly respected Counselling team at the Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living and have previous experience of counselling with Her Majesty's Prison Service.
