About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic counsellor based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I work with young adults through to older individuals on a one-to-one basis. I offer my clients a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space to explore their difficulties according to their individual needs and at their own pace. As a Psychodynamic counsellor I work alongside my clients to help them make sense of their issues and difficulties in the present by looking at links to their past relationships and experiences.
There are times in all our lives when we may experience emotional turbulence, distress, anxiety and feel overwhelmed and unsure how to proceed. Talking to a trusted, qualified counsellor, who knows you in no other capacity, can help you explore and reflect on your feelings in safety, gain insight and move forward.
I have over 5 years’ experience of delivering both short-term and long-term therapy to clients with a wide range of different issues and difficulties. I worked for several years at a bereavement charity, and as well as my private practice, I currently work with clients from Victims of Crime, the NHS, an Employment Assistance Programme and The Counselling Foundation.
As a BACP registered counsellor I work within the BACP’s Code of Ethics. My work is supervised in accordance with professional requirements and I have full indemnity insurance. I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in order to uphold data protection.
Qualifications: BA Hons Social History, Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling, Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
