About me and my therapy practice

I have specialised in bereavement and loss for over 10 years. These two areas of life inevitably touch all of us, in different ways, and our response can vary widely.

Anxiety and depression may often result from loss, one word which covers many experiences, for example; the death of a loved one or a miscarriage; infertility; a life event such as divorce or redundancy; the loss of health, whether a long term condition or a diagnosis of a life limiting illness like cancer. Or perhaps life is just not working out how you thought it would.

Sometimes one loss may trigger feelings relating to a previous unresolved loss and you find yourself unable to understand your emotions.

I can help you explore and make sense of how you are feeling, to find a path through this time of transition and adjustment.

My practice is in the centre of St Albans. Please do call or email if you are struggling with loss, bereavement or unexplained feelings of anxiety.

Practice description

I also see clients at my home in Smallford, St Albans.

For the time being, due to Covid-19 precautions, I am only working with clients via telephone or Zoom video link.

My first session

The preliminary session offers a chance to meet each other and see if we both feel we would be able to develop a good working relationship. 

In it we would talk about what has brought you to counselling and what you are hoping to gain from it. 

It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and we would go over the practicalities of working together, to ensure you are in agreement with them. 

If we both feel that working together would be helpful to you, we will talk about the number and frequency of sessions and I will take your full contact details. 

My fees are £20 for the first session and £40 for subsequent sessions, which last for 50 minutes. Fees are payable on the day, by cash, card or cheque.
