About me and my therapy practice

Hello. There is a lot of anxiety around due to this pandemic and the lockdowns. This is causing anxiety, anger, frustration and depression and it is affecting both our physical and our mental well being. Moreover the increased stress can test our closest relationships and may even manifest in different ways like domestic abuse. I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I have worked extensively with mental health charities as well as in private practice in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and North London for ten years. I offer face to face, telephone and online support for Individuals, Couples and Families. I work in CBT, Psychodynamic, SFBT or Person-centred approaches and I can offer face to face, telephone or online support for Individuals, Couples and Families subject to screening. I am non-judgemental and easy to talk to and I offer a safe space in which we can examine how you got here and together we can explore a way forward to get you where you would like to be instead, working at a pace that suits you.  

Practice description

I am based in Watford and there is generally off street parking available nearby. The entrance also has wide steps with short in-steps and grab rails to assist those who have limited mobility impairment.      

My first session

The first session is at a reduced rate and involves an exploration of your concerns and what to expect during therapy. It involves setting a framework for the sessions ahead and how we will work together with an explanation of the contract and the parameters of confidentiality.  In the first session I generally gather as much information about your background and your circumstances to assess the focus of the work so that together we can agree on a realistic time period for therapy.
