About me

I am an experienced Child, Young People and Adults Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist practising in Harpenden, St Albans, Wheathampstead and surrounding Hertfordshire villages. I practise integrative therapy which means I am trained in working with several approaches. I draw on Psychodynamic, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, 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. I have been perfecting, applying and adapting my integrative approach over the past 20 years in order to keep delivering the best possible care.

My experience has been gained over many years in various settings such as NHS (CAMHS, 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 and adults. I have over 10 years of experience as a psychotherapist, working for Hertfordshire County Council in Children's Services, in various settings including educational establishments, community spaces such as children's centres. I have been working alongside social services, providing therapy for foster carers.

My experience also includes responding to mental health crisis for individuals or teams in public or private organisations.
