I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working with individuals, couples and young adults. I also provide clinical supervision for qualified and trainee counsellors.
I have been working in private practice for the last 10 years and have an office based consulting room in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I qualified 16 years ago.
My experience is varied, having worked both in the private and public sector. My couple training and practice was gained whilst working with Relate. I worked in an Employee Assistance Programme for many years so I have experience of working with employees, many facing work related stress and trauma alongside personal difficulties. I provide one to one counselling or longer term psychotherapy to people who are struggling with a range of issues. Here are some themes I regularly work with anxiety, depression, abuse, bereavement, loneliness, relationship difficulties, divorce and separation, sexual identity, loss of confidence, looking for meaning in life, ill health, redundancy and retirement.
I am an affiliate counsellor for several Employee Assistance Programmes and insurance companies so I'm used to working with clients who have a limited number of sessions available.
I am a warm, compassionate professional who is passionate about individuals and couples being the best they can be. I have a particular interest in working with relationship problems, loss and work related difficulties. I find it particularly rewarding to work with clients from diverse ethnic backgrounds and sexuality, as well as across age ranges.
