About me and my therapy practice

Since the coronavirus lockdown I see many more people via Zoom, which works very well.  NHS and private clients come 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 with clients who prefer this.  I offer short-term or open-ended psychodynamic counselling and Person-Centred 'Counselling for Depression'.

Practice description

Sometimes we just need some help and I have been doing this for some years, learning more about the factors that intrude on happiness and impede change. Troubling thoughts and feelings can be overwhelming, getting in the way of life and relationships and we may know what that 'issue' is, but sometimes we have no idea. In a trusting therapeutic relationship we work together to make sense of things in depth in the aim of strengthening the foundations to make life happier and difficulties easier to manage. So, whether you know what is behind depression or anxiety and it could be a loss like bereavement, disability or divorce or if you just know you need help and don't know why, just call and we will talk.  

My first session

In the first 90 minute session I want to know what brings you to counselling now and more about you: 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 and as this happens you will be getting a sense of whether we can work together. After that we agree a weekly 50 minute time-slot.
