I am a fully trained and qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist. I work with individuals, couples and groups. My work draws on 19 years working in the field of intuitive bodywork, healing and counselling, which has helped to shape and inform my approach to the work.


I offer a safe and confidential environment in which to explore your situation and gain a deeper understanding of the current challenges you are facing. Whether its for short term counselling which focuses on a specific issue, or long term counselling/psychotherapy,


My training is integrative, which means I use a variety of therapeutic approaches depending on what is needed as we explore your issues. The approach I use will be tailored to suit your individual needs.


As an integrative therapist I pay attention and really listen to the many different aspects of you and your experiences in life. This can enable you to uncover buried patterns and beliefs, which have prevented you from living life more fully.


This may be the first time you have considered counselling/psychotherapy in order to reflect on, and perhaps understand a long term issue or maybe to embark on a period of personal growth. Whatever the reason I am happy to talk through any concerns you may have.



Here are a few examples of the areas I work with


•Anxiety in general






•Fertility issues

•Overwhelming feelings of exhaustion, depression, sadness, aloneness.

•An inability to cope

•Anger management issues

•Panic attacks or Phobias


•Suicidal Feelings

•Spiritual Crisis


I practice from a tranquil dedicated therapy room in my home in Berkhamsted Herts HP4 3TT.

I also practice from therapy rooms in the Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy in Little Venice W2 6NE.


I offer counselling/psychotherapy and supervision to individuals, couples for an agreed term or on an open-ended basis. I occasionally offer telephone and Skype sessions.
