Hello and thanks for looking at my profile. I am a qualified counsellor and have worked from my private practice based on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley since I qualified in 2009. During this time I have worked with many hundreds of clients offering long and short term counselling. I have gained wide experience working with many presenting issues including but not limited to : anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss or bereavement, anger or difficult relationships. Feelings of disconnection from self and others, or feeling disillusioned with life; lacking purpose and meaning.

Clients come to me for a myriad of issues, some of the most common themes are life crisis, feeling stuck, loneliness, addictions, feeling lost, anxiety, feeling directionless in life, divorce, and fear of the unknown to name but a few. Clients needs are generally to learn how to 'feel enough' again, gain self confidence, support/reassurance, create some structure and boundaries in their life. Helping clients to create and manifest their desires hopes and dreams moves them closer towards their goals in life. As individuals we need and want to experience feeling held and supported with empathy, to feel lighter, creating freedom.

As a therapist for both adults & adolescents I understand the impact of today's ever changing world can have on us at any age. I will offer you the opportunity to talk through your worries and feel more emotionally tolerant for the future ahead; whichever path you choose to take. I can help you build your self-esteem and promote confidence in your own ability; using the tools you already have and new ones you'll develop. Anxiety, anger, depression & shame are words we're hearing more frequently but have we become intolerant to experiencing them? I offer you an opportunity to talk through your issues in an emotionally healthy way.

Life can get complicated, confusing and a little frustrating at different times throughout our lives. Despite our best efforts to carry on coping with life on a day-to-day basis, there are times when seeking trained and experienced assistance to make sense of what has made us who we are can be extremely beneficial.

Are you experiencing current or past issues/problems that you have found too difficult to share with family and friends? There are times in our life when we need a space to talk without the fear of judgement. To be able to confide your personal struggles to someone, without the fear to hold back due to what is acceptable in society’s eyes… Counselling can offer you the breathing space to work towards getting to know yourself, and your own journey towards self-growth, acceptance and love for you. I can offer you a confidential and safe space to talk about what is weighing heavily on your mind.

When did you last feel really listened to? Do you feel ready to explore why you might feel confused, unfulfilled or overwhelmed by life's difficulties? Early relationships and life events may have shaken your ability to fully value yourself or others. You might be experiencing anxiety or depression. Being able to talk openly to an objective and compassionate counsellor can offer you the support you need to connect with frightening or buried feelings and start to let go of strategies that no longer work for you. You can start to find your own truth and a sense of who you really are.

Hello. I am a friendly, experienced clinical psychologist / family therapist. I have been working with people with a range of psychological difficulties for over twenty years. I see adults, children and couples. My therapeutic approach is based on a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Systemic Therapy, If you are experiencing intense distress our work may either take the form of a more intensive, time-limited therapy to help you regain a sense of emotional balance. Equally we may work in a more explorative manner better suited to understanding more deep seated emotional difficulties.

I am very good at treating people with Anxiety, Depression, Personality Disorders, as well as those with traumatic experiences. I apply a very modern and effective type of dynamic psychotherapy called Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). I work on repressed feelings and emotions and help you to get rid of the pain and suffer to become a mature personality. For most people, psychological stress and unresolved traumas are so overwhelming that often leads to many other problems, such as low performance, low confidence, unpleasant encounters and a gradual destruction of well-being. If left untreated, these psychological issues can be transferred from one generation to the next, due to its lasting effects on children. Modern treatments in psychotherapy can help you overcome many types of psychological problems. People suffering from these problems can be helped to regain their sense of pride, efficiency, and effectiveness. My clients need to be well motivated, and cooperative.

Asking for help is not an easy step to take. The prospect of sharing your thoughts and feelings with someone else is quite a leap of faith and if you have not experienced counselling before you may be wondering what to expect. I would like to offer you a comfortable space where we can talk and get to know each other; and when you are ready, we can start to explore and make sense of your thoughts and personal difficulties, working entirely at your own pace. By exploring our past experiences and relationships we can often gain a new and fresh perspective on our issues which can lead to a deeper understanding of ourselves.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, offering individuals a safe and confidential place for support and exploration. I believe that a respectful and non-judgmental environment is crucial to therapy, this is an essential element of the way I work. I always welcome whole authentic feelings from my clients, without putting a negative label on them. In order to explore overwhelming feelings such as: guilt, depression, anxiety, anger, loss, self-harm etc. without feeling judged, trust needs to be present. The decision to come to counselling is a courageous step - facing our difficulties is never easy but can be liberating.

Therapy is one time when it is all about you. Your experiences, your feelings. When things feel difficult – whether or not you know the reasons why, therapy can really help. How? At the heart of therapy is your relationship with your therapist. When your therapist offers you space to think and to feel, uninterrupted and without judgement, you can start to make more sense of things, together. So it’s important to find a good connection. There are many types of therapist – it’s not necessarily sensible shoes and long silences.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Hertfordshire are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Hertfordshire then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Hertfordshire, or Child Psychologists in Hertfordshire.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Hertfordshire psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Hertfordshire specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
