About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and accredited counsellor. Zoom or Skype consultations are available during the current pandemic restrictions. My general approach is to help you understand your current difficulties so you can feel more at ease in your life. I am a mature professional and spent 25 years as a senior manager in private companies and public organisations and specialise in offering counselling to individuals suffering from work-related issues such as anxiety, stress, communication problems, redundancy and retirement. I have also worked as a university tutor for 15 years and can offer coaching on overcoming stress related study difficulties in completing essays and dissertations at undergraduate or postgraduate level. I have taught psychodynamic counselling theory and happy to meet with counselling students.
My experience in helping those clients with mental health difficulties includes working from 2011-14 as an Honorary Psychotherapist for an NHS Trust and from 2010-2012 as a Psychodynamic Counsellor with Mind. I have completed an intensive training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with The Guild of Psychotherapists in London which enables me to see clients 2-3 times per week if required.
My consulting room is in a quiet street on the first floor of a private house in Harpenden with parking outside. I am 10-15 minutes’ walk from the mainline Thameslink station in Harpenden and the High Street. Luton, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and Hatfield are all approximately 20 minutes’ drive away from my consulting room.
