About me and my therapy practice

I’m Tom and I currently provide tailored 1:1 therapy for individuals and couples. I often see that intense emotions can make it difficult to be effective in daily living, and so I specialise in emotion regulation. My main areas of interest include working with anxiety, depression, anger management, borderline personality disorder, addictive behaviours, and relationship and sexual problems. My recent work experience includes the Priory Hospital in North London.

My approach to therapy is integrative, which allows me to draw from a range of skills depending on your needs. Some situations require listening with room to gain understanding, and others require practical skills to overcome. My overall style is friendly, empathic, and down to earth.

I have additional training in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). The main goals of DBT are to find healthy ways to manage emotions and improve relationships with others. My DBT training was provided by the British Isles DBT training team. I’m also a COSRT registered relationship & psychosexual therapist. I have received extensive training working with couples, and am developing skills working towards a diploma through the NHS and the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology.

Practice description

I believe that what works in therapy is a trusting relationship and I offer a confidential space for this to develop. I have a purpose built therapy room located in Redbourn, which is just outside St Albans. It is a peaceful and comfortable space which is easily accessible with plentiful parking.

If you are experiencing difficulty with emotions, we work together to understand and develop techniques towards balance. This sometimes involves alternative ways of thinking, behaving, or learning skills to cope, such as mindfulness or acceptance.

If you think that you have addictive behaviours - either alcohol/drugs or any other pattern of problematic behaviour - I would offer you an individual service depending on your needs. I have extensive experience working in a treatment centre for addiction and am passionate about offering a non-judgemental and flexible approach. 

My first session

I appreciate that finding the right therapist can be challenging. I offer a free 15 minute phone or zoom consultation to discuss if we can work together, and if my skills are a suitable fit. During the first session, we would discuss how the process works, what your expectations are, and eventually establish your goals and how best to proceed. I offer both long and short term therapy, which is usually weekly. I can offer either face to face sessions following current guidelines, or online via zoom.

What I can help with

Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Identity issues, Loss, Men's issues, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues

Types of therapy

Behavioural, CBT, Humanistic, Integrative, Psychodynamic
