How can I help?
My service is confidential and open to all without prejudice. I have over seven years experience counselling individuals and groups, helping my clients work through a wide range of issues and difficulties such as:
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work according to their ethical framework. My practice is based in Potters Bar (directions).
I have been trained to work as a Person Centred Counsellor. The goal of a Person Centred Counsellor is to provide clients with an opportunity to develop a sense of self where they can realise how their attitudes, feelings and behaviour are being negatively affected.
I hold a strong belief in the positive nature of all human beings, we will always strive to do the best for ourselves, no matter the conditions we encounter in life or the problems we face.

As a Person Centred Counsellor I believe that the most important aspect in counselling is the therapeutic relationship that will develop between us, in which I hope that you will feel heard and understood without judgement, that you experience me as a real and genuine person in this relationship.
Following the basis of a set of core conditions laid down by Carl Rogers, the father of the Person-Centred counselling model, I believe that by being empathic, congruent, and showing genuine unconditional positive regard, together we can facilitate your growth and enable your natural resources and capabilities.
Most of us will experience Bereavement at some point in our lives. Whilst every story is unique, you may find it helpful to have the opportunity to talk with someone who will listen and support you as you begin to come to terms with your loss.

Everyone has a different experience after someone they were close to has died, each person has to find their own individual way through their feelings. You may have experienced many different losses in many different circumstances --a miscarriage or stillbirth, the loss of a child, a partner, lover, friend, relation or colleague. The deaths may be caused by illness, accident, suicide, murder or natural causes.
Grieving is a natural process and not everyone needs to seek counselling, however, in these modern times the old support network of family, friends and community are not always available or appropriate.
