I am a qualified Integrative counsellor based in St. Albans and have been practising since 2010. Although I have been trained in various theoretical approaches, my core training is in the Person-Centred approach.
I spent several years working with children in primary and secondary schools, a couple of years in a prison and a year working with young adults in an assisted housing project, so have counselled people of various ages, diverse backgrounds and with a variety of issues including: family life, relationships, bereavement, trauma, self-esteem, body image, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, avoidant personality disorders, miscarriage and sight loss to name a few.
Alongside my private practise I currently work with Herts Vision Loss, a charity that supports and empowers people who are blind or have a visual impairment.
I also speak Spanish and some Italian.
