Welcome! Thank you for being here.

I am an experienced Practitioner combining Counselling and Cognitive Hypnotherapy. A powerful combination of  approaches that can create significant and often life changing shifts.  I am a registered accredited member of The National Counselling Society  (NCS) and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH). I also Supervise other Counsellors with their Clinical Work.

My Practice is based in Rickmansworth, a warm, welcoming and confidential environment ensuring comfort and ease.

I draw upon extensive training including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Hypnotherapy. I also work with psycho sensory therapeutic approaches including Havening and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

Clients seek therapy when they realise it’s time to make changes in their lives, but often struggle with how to make this happen. So often people expect themselves to just get on with it, sometimes preferring not to ask for help, judging themselves as weak if they can’t cope. The opposite of course is true. Asking for support can be the hardest step to take but once taken can lead to a very different way of viewing and experiencing life. I help enable people to challenge unhelpful ways of thinking that inhibit and limit their own potential. Instead we work together to break free of existing beliefs that hold a person back from truly living a fully satisfying and empowered life.

I am passionate about my work and am wholly committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental setting. I am also in supervision for my work, in which client information that is discussed is strictly confidential too.


I qualified in Person Centred Counselling in 2007, then continued with training gaining an Advanced Diploma in C.B.T. in 2009 followed by Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP Practitioner Certificate in 2011.

Throughout my training and beyond I worked at The Women’s Centre and Signpost Youth Counselling Agency in Watford and Bereavement Visiting.

I work with clients  young people aged 14 upwards and adults who bring a variety of issues whether stemming from the past or in the present. I  help clients with a variety of issues including:


Anxiety due to Stress

Relationship Issues


Exam Stress

Life transitions

Fears and Phobias
