About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP and NHS Accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist, also Accredited by the University of Nottingham in Emotion-Focused Therapy. I have a particular interest in the adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect, (NAPAC), and a develped understanding of abusive relationships.  I do not see people as a set of issues, but complex and unique individuals who have an equal part in the counselling/therapy relationship.  I can see in in my room near Hemel Hempstead, or by video.    

I always have in mind the unconscious part that earlier experience plays in the present and will talk about this with the client to help them better understand and change.  Some childhoods are safe and happy which give a resilience, but in adversity that can be lost and of course some are less fortunate.  Psychodynamic counselling works to unlock the unprocessed, hidden past to build and strengthen.  Whatever is causing you to look, please call or email, if I don't answer immediately, leave a message and I will call back.
