Hello and welcome to my page. I am a fully qualified, BACP registered Counsellor working with adults and young people from my therapy rooms in Watford and St Albans in Hertfordshre and via online video call, worldwide.
I am passionate about providing an inclusive, confidential, safe space for all clients regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexuality.
There are many different reasons that lead people to seek Counselling and your journey will be unique to you. You may be going through a difficult point in your life or finding it hard to cope or deal with past or present issues? You may be feeling confused, stuck or like you’re going around in circles and unable to move forward. Whatever your reason, we can work through it together and help you find a way forward.
Counselling can help you explore your thoughts and feelings and make sense of what you are going through. It provides you with a safe space to talk freely about what is troubling you without the fear of being judged. The things you have been through in life can leave you with difficult thoughts and feelings. They may have left you feeling not good enough, with self doubt or unable to trust in yourself or others. You may worry about what others think of you and feel unable to be yourself or even forgotten who you really are. These feelings can affect all aspects of your life and may be holding you back.Through our work together, I will support you to build resilience, self-esteem and gain more control of your life. Be more able to find solutions to your problems, healtheir ways of coping and make long lasting changes.

*Abuse (emotional, sexual and physical)
*Bereavement & Loss * Chronic Pain and Illness

Person-centered counselling uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.
