I am an experienced psychotherapist working with adults. I offer short and long term counselling in a safe and non-judgemental space to think about you and what is going on for you right now. This is a space to help you understand the difficulties you are experiencing and the aim is to find a way to move forward. My private practice is situated in Rickmansworth, 7 minute walk from station.
My model is a psychodynamic way of working and this involves, sometimes, looking closely at patterns, (sometimes originating in childhood), and explore them to find ways to make changes or develop alternative ways of coping.
