About me and my therapy practice
I'm a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor and Therapist in St Albans offering you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to think, to feel and to explore… together.
Perhaps you’re finding it hard to cope, struggling with difficult feelings, confused about the way you feel and about certain patterns of behaviour, or perhaps you want to carve out a space for you. Whatever the reason I strive to provide a reliable and empathic environment in which you feel comfortable to open up, to share your thoughts, concerns and experiences at the pace you wish, and I will listen in a warm, thoughtful and respectful way. We will work together to make sense of your feelings and difficulties, help you gain an understanding, and explore how things might be able to change, or become more bearable.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP and I work to the BACP’s standards of Good Practice and abide by their Code of Ethics.
My approach is mainly psychodynamic which means that I work with you to help you make links between your present difficulties and past experiences. By exploring together difficult feelings or issues, I can help you to make sense of them, achieve insight and understanding, and in turn facilitate positive change, self awareness and a capacity to cope with present and future difficulties.
My first session
I offer a free, initial consultation in which we can think together about what might be most helpful for you at this point.
This is a chance for you to tell me a bit about you and why you're seeking therapy at this time, and also a chance for you to find out about how I work and ask me any questions you may have. This can take place either face-to-face, via Zoom or on the telephone.
