Aylesbury - Tring - Wendover - Leighton Buzzard

PortraitI am qualified in person-centred counselling and also in arts psychotherapy, working with individuals, couples and young people.

Whether you’re looking for short-term support or want to explore deeper issues on a more open-ended basis, I offer a confidential, empathic and supportive space to help navigate difficult and painful times. I also supervise both qualified and trainee therapists.

Based in the village of Wingrave (click here for a map) on the border between Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, my counselling and psychotherapy practice is within easy reach of Aylesbury, Wendover, Tring, Berkhamsted and Leighton Buzzard. I work in a purpose-built log cabin which is separate from the house. Parking is available.

You are not alone

If you sometimes feel as though everything’s gone wrong, and that you’d like to be happier, braver, or freer, then you’re not alone. You’re not alone if you feel that you’re not living the life you hoped for and that something is missing. We all sometimes feel stuck, when we don’t know what the next step could be, or how to make changes. It can be very hard to leave behind old patterns of behavior and move on. Trying to make sense of yourself, others and the world isn’t easy, and there are numerous reasons why people look for therapy. I have experience, additional training and a particular interest in counselling for the following areas:

  • Stress
  • Relationships with Others
  • Relationship with Self
  • Divorce or Separation
  • Anxiety
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • Work-related issues including unemployment and redundancy
  • Depression
  • Personality Disorders
  • Low self-esteem and lack of confidence
  • Assertiveness
  • Achieving your full potential
  • Life-coaching
  • Life transitions and change
  • Spirituality and the Soul
  • Reconnecting with Creative Aspects of Self
  • Body issues
  • Just feeling stuck

    "Expressive art therapy integrates all of the arts in a safe, non-judgmental setting to facilitate personal growth and healing. To use the arts expressively means going into our inner realms to discover feelings and to express them through visual art, movement, sound, writing or drama. This process fosters release, self-understanding, insight and awakens creativity."
    (Natalie Rogers)

    I have worked providing counselling and art psychotherapy in schools, GP surgeries, voluntary agencies and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. I also provide therapist supervision. At the moment I work only in private practice, in a village located 6 miles from Aylesbury, Tring and Leighton Buzzard, on the border of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
