About Me

About Me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy services to adults over the age of eighteen who live and work in and around the areas of St Albans and Watford in Hertfordshire. I am trained to Master’s level from the University of Roehampton and began my training with an advanced diploma in integrative counselling and psychotherapy.

I have worked for a number of charitable organisations within mental health and the educational sector as a counsellor and psychotherapist with young people and adults. My experience includes helping people to find better ways of coping with issues such as self-harm, low self-esteem, depression, addiction, personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. My varied roles have allowed me to work with a variety of ages with vast cultural beliefs and backgrounds.

In addition to private practice, I am a counsellor for the UK’s largest charitable organisation for mental health, Mind. I am also a counsellor and psychotherapist at Hertfordshire Therapy Centre in Welwyn Garden City where I continue my work with individuals and couples for issues around depression, anxiety, trauma and more.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), which means I abide to their strict code of ethics and practice.

I am committed and passionate about empowering others’ to live authentically, which is reflected in my work and continuing professional development.

I live and work in the Hertfordshire area with my husband and two children.

If you think I might be able to help, please get in touch for a free 15-minute telephone consultation.
