About me

At some point in our lives we all need a helping hand. I offer a safe and confidential environment to support you and identify areas in your life that may be causing you difficulties.A key part of my work is the nature and quality of the relationship .Everyone is unique and so I work in different ways to encourage you to develop greater insight, awareness, and understanding of why problems have arisen and how change can happen.

Struggling with emotional issues, can impact on the way we move forwards which can cause us to feel frustrated, frightened and apprehensive. Working together we can explore both past and present experiences that may be impacting on your life now. With understanding and empathy we can discover and develop more beneficial coping strategies which may also help reduce feelings of anxiety and depression .

I am a fully qualified  Psychodynamically trained therapist, I also incorporate elements of person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapies to work with both conscious and unconscious processes.

Please contact me to arrange an inital appointment where we can discuss what you want from counselling. This is an opportunity for you to decide if counselling is the way forward and to ask me any questions that you may have.

Therapy is held in either St. Albans or Redbourn
