About me and my therapy practice

Welcome.  My name is Catherine Bray. I am a psychodynamic counsellor and group analyst working in Chesham and Hemel Hempstead offering confidential individual counselling and group psychotherapy to people who are experiencing emotional and mental health problems.

Owing to the coronavirus crisis, I cannot currently meet you face to face.  I am however, able to offer telephone, Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom sessions to all clients.

I work psychodynamically which means that I am interested in what happens under the surface – the meaning behind the words and the significance of apparently trivial events. In psychodynamic counselling, nothing is silly, or trivial, ‘only that…’ or ‘just this…’

Underpinning all my counselling and group psychotherapy work is the knowledge that it is ultimately the quality of the relationship between client and therapist - that's you and me - that heals.

My first session

Our first session will take place after we have spoken on the phone to arrange the time and date to meet.  This will be a chance for us to talk to together about how we could work together, and to see if you think my approach might be helpful – we can talk about anything that is or has been bothering you, in the past or the present.  If at the end of our initial consultation you remain uncertain, we can arrange another session to see if things become clearer.   I believe that your instinct will tell you if we can work together.
