About me and my therapy practice
It all begins with relationships, our very existence depends on it. Which is why my focus as a psychotherapist is to build on the relationship that you have with yourself and those that you deem important to you.
The way that you feel about yourself matters, it impacts your life choices, how you cope with difficulty and how you face adversity.
When you're feeling overwhelmed and stressed, counselling helps you to clarify your thoughts and find practical solutions to move forward in the best way that's right for you.
As an integrative practitioner I'm experienced in helping my clients to explore what that might look like. This might mean looking at how past experiences are impacting you in the here and now, or using a solution focused approach, or using behavioural techniques, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
You do not have to let past experiences define you, but you can use this self awareness to develop, grow and be the best version of you that you can be.
If you are ready to make the commitment to learning more about yourself and implementing change, contact me today to arrange your free telephone consultation.
I'm a mental health advocate and passionate about teaching my clients the importance of wellbeing and self care.
My private consulting room is based in St Albans, which offers free and easy parking, where I work with individuals and couples.

My first session
The first session is for us to get to know each other and make a collaborative plan of what you are hoping to achieve from therapy.
We may cover some of this briefly in our initial telephone consultation, but the first session is more detailed.
The first session can feel quite daunting if you've never experienced therapy before, but I assure you that the first session is similar to a relaxed conversation.
I do not expect you to know all of the answers and there are no awkward silences!
If you get stuck with what to say, I'll ask some relevant questions that will help you along, but mostly people find that the time passes much quicker than anticipated.
It's also a great opportunity for you to ask me any questions that you have.
