Healing is a matter of time,
but it is sometimes also
a matter of opportunity

Therese Baker

At times life can be challenging  we can allow things to get on top of us and at other times it can be incredibly overwhelming.  Sometimes we just need a safe and non-judgemental environment to talk through what is going on for us and in turn this allows us to make sense of how we are feeling.   

I believe my job as a counsellor is to step into your world to help you explore  and make sense of what is going on for you.  I aim to help clients move towards a happier and fulfilling  way of being allowing them to make more informed choices.

I am an integrative therapist,  who predominantly works in a person centred way.   This allows me to incorporate different counselling approaches to tailor session to your individual needs. I use a combination of Mindfulness, NLP, CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred techniques.  I truly believe that everyone is unique.   By this I believe you are the only person that understand how you feel and I am here to facilitate that process not to judge or give advice.

I am happy to meet for an initial session to discuss what has primarily brought you to counselling, if we decided we want to work together we can discuss whether you wish to have short or long term therapy.

I am a qualified therapist, who is a member of the BACP,  which means I work to their ethical framework so that the service I offer is professional, works in your best interest and keeps you and I both safe. I work at Signpost counselling in Watford and until recently worked at Windsor & Maidenhead Counselling. My private practice is based in Leavesden, Hertfordshire.

I work with clients with a range of issues ranging from anxiety, stress, panic attacks, anger issues, depression, insomnia,  low confidence, low self esteem, sexuality, self-image, anorexia, bulimia and bullying.

My therapy room in Leavesden is within easy reach of the M1 and M25 and the surrounding areas of Bushey, Garston, Kings Langley, Croxley, Rickmansworth and Watford. Parking is available locally.
