About me and my therapy practice

Since the coronavirus lockdown I see many more people via Zoom, which works very well and I see NHS and private clients from all over Hertfordshire and beyond, so location need no longer be an issue.  However, I have a room in Hemel Hempstead, (Woodhall Farm) and am beginning to return, within safe guidelines, to face-to-face working from June 1st for clients who prefer this.  I offer short-term or open-ended psychodynamic counselling and Person-Centred 'Counselling for Depression' and 'Trauma-Informed' therapy.

Practice description

Sometimes we just need some help.  Troubling thoughts and feelings can be overwhelming and can get in the way of life and relationships.  It could be that you know what the 'issue' is, or you have no idea, just know that things are not right and could be better.   In a trusting therapeutic relationship we work together to make sense of things with the aim of strengthening foundations.  Self awareness gives the ability to understand the roots of unhappiness and anxiety, giving more control over life and making thoughts and feelings easier to manage. So, whether you know what is behind your depression and anxiety, like relationship problems, bereavement, childhood trauma, or if you just know you need help and don't know why, please call and we can start to talk.  

My first session

In the first 90 minute session I want to know what brings you to counselling, a bit about your childhood and life since then.  It is not all one way; you meet me too.  I will set out a framework for counselling and talk to you about what you want.  After that we agree a weekly 50 minute time-slot.
