Location: Hitchin

I am a mature independent therapist working from offices based in the town centre of Hitchin, also a private practice in SG5 area. I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and accredited member of the national counselling society.
At the centre of my work are difficulties around relationships, adult survivors/victims of narcissistic/toxic relationships who have experienced the exploitations of others, be they friends, family, co-workers or partners and C-PTSD (complex-past traumatic stress disorder).

I offer a safe space where you are invited to speak freely about psychological, emotional or existential issues without judgement or comparison, in a supportive and facilitating environment to someone who really listens. I do not discriminate on the basis of Gender, Sexuality, Disability, Age, Race or Class.
