About me

Each one of us, at certain points in our lives will experience a struggle which cannot be overcome alone.
Sometimes we find ourselves less able to deal with the demands of life and need a confidential, safe and secure place to express our thoughts and feelings away from friends and family.

Therapy will help you to gain self awareness and insight into your relationships for life. It is an opportunity to make a permanent change.

I am a fully qualified Person centered psychotherapist, offering short and long-term counselling. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches allowing me to work with your unique and individual experiences.

For over 18 years I have helped people with issues such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, menapause, confidence, stress, work, redundancy and relationships. I am Senior Accredited with the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.

I am also an EMDR Therapist :

EMDR is an acronym for ‘Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing’.it is one of the leading treatments for PTSD and traumatic memories, recommended by NICE clinical guidelines. It uses Eye Movements to help process traumatic memories in a healthier way. I have used EMDR in many types of trauma and it can be effective with almost any past traumatic experience you feel are still affecting you today. It can also be used for anxiety and phobias.

I am based in Borehamwood,Hertfordshire , and offer face to face or telephone/zoom therapy. My location is easily accessible by public transport, and I am on a main road with plenty of parking.
