About me and my therapy practice

If you are suffering with anxiety, depression, grief, anger or feel tearful, it impacts your daily life.

Mental Health encompasses our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It has a huge impact on how you act, feel and react, as well as impacting the life choices you make.

Seeking advice to overcome your feelings is a big step and it can be helpful to have someone beside you on your journey. My goal as a Counsellor is to provide a safe, compassionate environment to help you navigate the challenges of life.

Working together I can help you develop a greater understanding of your thoughts and feelings and explore how you can move forward to begin to enjoy life again. Life can provide challenges, making us feel overwhelmed, struggling to cope. There are times in our lives when we need some support and help, someone who will listen, feel safe and is non-judgemental. We don't always understand why we feel like we do, some times there's a more obvious trigger. If you are upset, struggling or facing difficulties it can help to talk, which isn't always easy. Understanding our feelings can help us towards a sense of calm and help gain more control over our lives. I work with a genuineness and sensitivity which may enable you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, developing an increased sense of self-acceptance. 

I work with Adults and adolescence and can offer long term/open ended counselling. 

I am a BUPA authorised therapist.  

Practice description

I am an experienced psychodynamically trained accredited counsellor. 

Psychodynamic counselling helps gain an understanding of deep rooted feelings and struggles, bringing the unconscious mind into the conscious in order to resolve issues. When our mind struggles to process feelings, memories and experiences, defences are used to protect ourselves. By exploring and understanding these defences it can help us make changes and process unresolved problems.

As well as running my private practice I have experience within voluntary agencies, associate work at Stort psychotherapy practice,  voluntary secondary school counsellor as well as working as an assistant school project manager. 

I have 10 years experience working in the NHS, in Psychiatry, Rehabilitation and Neurology.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychodynamic counsellor, working with couples. 

Relationships form a key part of our lives, we desire happiness, support and connection but relationships can be challenging and difficult. When we feel a strong sense of connection we often feel at our happiest and most fulfilled. 

When we encounter relationship difficulties it isn't always easy to know where to turn. Loosing connection with our loved one can leave us feeling alone and disappointed.  

Counselling can help provide space for you as a couple (or an individual) to explore your concerns, expectations and needs within the relationship. 

Working alongside we can explore more about yourselves as  individuals, and develop understanding of your needs and each others needs within the relationship. Working together you may gain a new perspective about each other and your relationship. 

Many issues can affect relationships; family issues, infidelity, sexual issues, trauma, communication difficulties, cultural differences, imbalanced responsibilities. Relationship counselling can help you improve your relationship by breaking free of old unhealthy patterns of behaviour and help develop new healthy methods of expressing your thoughts and feelings. 




Practice description

Couples counselling will offer a safe space for you to explore issues within the relationship. Through talking, we will explore the issues and consider what changes or issues have impacted the relationship, figuring out what you might like to be different, or exploring uncomfortable issues to rebuild a bond. It may be that you need help working through a break up, finding a way to communicate with each other whilst navigating separate lives. 


My office is centrally based in Bishop's Stortford, with nearby parking.

During the first session we will explore further what has bought you to therapy and what you hope to achieve from your counselling.
