About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with issues related to addiction, anxiety or depression ? Finding it hard to cope with major life changes? There comes a time when help is needed from a certified professional to deal with life’s challenges. I’m a qualified counsellor working in the Bishop Stortford area, and I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

​Alongside general counselling and therapy, I specialise in treatment for and recovery from addiction, I am also a front-line drug and alcohol counsellor spending part of my time working within a residential rehabilitation clinic.

You can expect a warm and friendly approach, I will seek to understand what it is that you hope to achieve from counselling and we will work together to have the best chance of achieving that. Therapy is a healing process that requires work by both the client and counsellor, but I know through experience that when these relationships work well, healing takes place and positive change is born, clients are empowered and lives are changed for the better.​

Contact me using the email form, calling or messaging. If leaving a voicemail/email/text you do not need to leave a detailed message – just your name, contact details and an idea of your interest in counselling. If you would like me to call you, let me know what times work. I can normally offer an assessment session within a few days. 

Practice description

Through my own recovery journey and personal life challenges I became involved in healing and recovery communities and set out on a path that would ultimately change my life in ways that I could not have believed possible. Through finding the right healing relationships, the right support and accepting the help on offer, I changed, and changed for the better, and so today, I am working to help others find recovery for themselves.​

I believe each person has their own inherent resources and potential for change and growth. A good counselling relationship helps to activate that potential by the counsellor and client working together. I take a relational approach to my work, which means we might talk about what is happening in the relationship between us (client and counsellor) as this can often provide very useful information.

My first session

First Session

What to expect.....

What's a First Session Like?

Every first session is different, but here are some ideas of what to expect when we first meet.

My priority is to welcome you and invite you to talk a bit about what is going on in your life and what brings you to counselling.

We're likely to discuss what you hope to get from counselling.

I will say a bit about how I work and answer questions you may have.

As part of my commitment to practising ethically I will need to assess my suitability to work with you. You will not have to decide whether or not you want to go ahead with counselling right away. I will ask you to get in touch with me once you have had time to reflect on the first session. 

What I can help with

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Eating disorders, Loss, Men's issues, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Service veterans, Sex-related issues, Sexuality, Spirituality, Stress, Substance Dependency, Trauma, Work related issues

Types of therapy

CBT, Existential, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Relational, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, EAP, Groups, Older adults, Trainee, Young people

How I deliver therapy
