Counselling and Psychotherapy


The overall aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment that gives you the opportunity to explore and examine your difficult feelings and problematic issues that are causing you pain or making you feel uncomfortable.

It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears in confidentiality without feeling judged or worried that you are burdening someone with your problems. The new insight which you gain through counselling/psychotherapy can help you to let go off patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may have sustained you in the past, but now cause you difficulties.


For the change to happen, it is vital to have a sense of safety and to feel comfortable. It is essential that you find a counsellor with whom you get on. Usually you know in the first meeting whether you’ll be able to work with your counsellor or not.


  • Sessions are 50 minutes long, and take place once weekly.
  • I offer online appointments by video call or face to face appointments in my therapy room located on Harpenden High Street.
  • Depending on your needs, I offer short, or long term counselling/psychotherapy at daytimes and evenings.


  • Per session: £70-£85 (50 min)


If you are unable to attend a session please let me know at least 24 hours in advance. If it is possible to re-schedule the session for a time that is convenient for both of us, I will endeavour to do so. If not, the fee for the missed session is payable.
