About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced, friendly and empathic psychodynamic counsellor based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I work with young adults through to older individuals on a one-to-one basis.
There are times in all our lives when we may experience emotional turbulence, distress, anxiety and feel overwhelmed, unsure how to proceed and who to confide in. I offer my clients a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space to explore their emotional difficulties according to their individual needs and at their own pace. 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.
Our relationship is at the heart of this process, and as a psychodynamic counsellor, I will work alongside you to help you make sense of your emotional difficulties in the present, by looking at links to your past relationships and experiences.
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. I have a special interest in working with parent carers.
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, Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling, Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
