My Approach

As a result of my Integrative training and theoretical thinking, I view each client as an individual with their own unique experiences. Therefore, my therapeutic approach is not limited to simply one way of working. Depending on your needs and requirements, I will provide a range of techniques and ways of working which are drawn from the diverse theories and approaches recognised within the field of Counselling and Psychotherapy today. My approach relies on sensitive listening, open exploration, interactive engagement, respectful challenge and mutual participation in the process. If appropriate, I encourage material that may be useful for you to bring to the sessions, i.e: drawings, a record of dreams, journals, poems, music.

About Me

With over 20 years experience, I am a UKCP registered and accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor, based in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. My website aims to tell you a little about how having Psychotherapy or Counselling with me may be of help to you.
There are several types of 'Talking Therapies', and therefore it can feel overwhelming to know where to start. If you have made it this far, I imagine that you have come to a point where you feel that you might want to reflect on aspects of your life, that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. Perhaps you can't even describe what you are feeling or why you are feeling a certain way. But you do know that you now want things to change.
My personal and professional experience has convinced me that talking with someone trained and experienced to listen attentively - and respond to you - within a confidential, accepting and safe environment, can often be hugely beneficial. Psychotherapy and Counselling cannot erase painful past experiences. However, it can equip you to move on with greater ease, by feeling: more in charge of yourself; less engaged in internal conflict; and more able to make choices. Consequently, you will feel more able to lead a contented and productive life.
