At times when life feels unpredictable, overwhelming, confusing or you feel alone and unsure, you may need someone to, not only listen to you, but to really hear you. I am a qualified psychotherapist and psychodynamic counsellor. I am a member of the BACP. I have a wealth of experience in working with anxiety and depression, bereavement, trauma, LGBTQ + and more. I invite you into a space which enables you to think about, explore, and talk about your feelings in a congruent and authentic manner, without fear of judgement.

Issues I work with include, but are not limited to: Anxiety, Assertiveness, Bereavement, Depression, Existential Issues, Identity Issues, Phobia, LGBTQ + Issues and Low Self-esteem.
Sometimes life’s challenges can feel like too much to handle alone. At those times it can help to have someone professional to talk to in confidence - I offer an understanding, supportive space in which we can work through lifes challenges together. My approach to psychotherapy is both affirming and challenging; supporting you to feel valued and heard whilst enabling you to move past avoidance and fear. I can help you explore elements of your life that are unsatisfactory and work towards making changes and choices that are more true to who you are now.

My special areas of interest are LGBTQ issues, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and Chronic pain/illness.
Right now you may feel desperate, lost, empty, stressed, anxious or fed up. Whatever difficulty has prompted you to seek Counselling does not define who are you are and the journey you want to take in life. Together we will explore your feelings of being stuck, alone or in darkness as you strengthen your own resources to create greater wellbeing, resilience and satisfaction. No person is the same or brings identical experiences but frequent issues I work with include depression, anxiety, loss & bereavement, trauma, suicidal thoughts, work or school stress and relationship tensions. I work with clients aged 13+ and with Couples.

I’m a counsellor and therapist based a short walk from Watford Town Centre. I work with individual adults and teenagers (aged 16+) experiencing many different challenges. These might include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, questions around identity, issues with confidence and self-esteem, feelings of hopelessness or struggles finding meaning, and everything in-between. As an integrative therapist, my therapeutic practice and thinking are informed by a number of widely recognised approaches. Above all, I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is what makes it such an effective catalyst for change.

Are you struggling to cope? Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, confused, depressed or simply stuck? Have you experienced trauma that has left you feeling numb, detached or unable to process your feelings? Do you feel angry, ashamed, scared or unfulfilled? There are often a range of emotions that people feel when trying to cope with troubling situations and it is not always easy to reach out for help, as people, including family and friends do not necessarily understand how to help. I may be able to help. I offer a safe, welcoming, confidential and non-judgemental space, where I can support you unpack what's on your mind.

I can offer you one-to-one personal therapy or couples work. You may have personal issues relating to your self esteem, relationship, problems with anxiety, stress and depression, or you may just feel that your current situation is limiting you. I am an experienced therapist and you won't know if therapy can help you unless you try. It can be difficult though to reach out. You can work with me and I will offer you a safe, supportive space. We can talk things through together. Sometimes we all need to turn to someone who isn't a family member or a friend and who may be able to offer something different.

Current crisis, Deeper issue, Self Care. Surprisingly quite often the thing that brings a person to seek support may be a way in to understanding deeper causes of unhappiness, anxiety or depression. Sometimes people live with a feeling of "something just not being quite right". Counselling can help develop Self-Awareness which in turn can be life changing! That’s the good news - but like most things in life it doesn’t happen without effort, and can be painful, but the results are definitely worth it! So be brave and you may look forward to personal growth and hopefully increased happiness. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist working with individual adults. I work from an analytic perspective - our experience of the past, both conscious and unconscious influences our present. Feelings of depression, anxiety or a lack of direction or meaning in life need to be understood in this broader context. By looking at our whole life we can uncover who we really are and where we wish to go. I offer a safe space where troublesome, dark and difficult feelings can be examined and explored - by bringing them into the light we open up the possibility of facing and understanding them.
