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).
