About me

I am an experienced Child and Young People's Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist with Adults practising in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. I practise integrative therapy which means I am experienced in working with several approaches. I draw on Psychodynamic, Psychotherapy, Cognitive behavioural therapy and Brief Solution focused therapy. When appropriate I also include Art therapy and Play therapy. Working integratively enables me to offer the type of therapy, or combination of therapies that is most appropriate for the particular needs of each client.

My experience has been gained over many years in various settings such as NHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, Adult Primary Mental Health Service), Local Authority, EAP providers, charities, counselling agencies and my private practice.

I work with children from the age of 5, young people, adults and couples. I currently work as a School counsellor/psychotherapist for Children's Specialist Services for Hertfordshire County Council and as an affiliated counsellor for various EAP providers.
