About me and my therapy practice

I am a registered BACP psychotherapist based in Hemel Hempstead. I offer short or long term therapy to help you explore and work through underlying feelings and issues that may appear in the form of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, loss and life crises.

How we relate to ourselves and to others impacts how we think, feel and function. I work to shed light on how our relationships past and present shape us and how we can get stuck repeating patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us. If we feel misunderstood or not accepted as we truly are, life can be hard to navigate and symptoms such as anxiety, self-criticism, intrusive thoughts and depression can take root, while personal desires, goals, aspirations and dreams get lost. Therapy provides a safe space where we can explore together what has happened in your life, where you are today and where you would like to be. I will be alongside you to help you make sense of your experience, enabling you to think and feel differently, to foster healthier relationships, manage internal conflicts, trust your own resources, find joy each day and bring about change on your own terms.

Our aim together is to work towards a place of personal empowerment, autonomy and true sense of inner self acceptance and agency within your life and relationships.

Practice description

I offer both face to face online and telephone sessions. I offer online sessions to clients aboard as well as UK via Zoom.  

I recommend weekly counselling sessions at a regular time each week as my experience has shown that this is most effective. 

Sessions last 50 minutes and we will work with whatever challenges you are facing in a supportive, non-judgemental and empathic way and at your pace.

Through counselling I aim to support you to gain more self awareness, self compassion and choice in how you respond to the inevitable challenges of life.
