About me

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or struggling with relationship issues?  If so counselling is a way of talking through your difficulties in a safe, non-judgemental space, where confidentiality is honoured.

I see counselling as a bridge supporting the healing process between client and therapist to help you to find new ways of coping with issues affecting your everyday life. These could be specific personal and/or relationship issues. Emotional distress can be as painful and debilitating as physical illness, yet often people stay silent and ignore their emotional pain.  Everyone deserves a safe space and empathic ear to voice any fear, pain or anxiety that may be affecting their happiness and well-being.

I understand what it's like to face difficult personal challenges and if you have reached that point of asking for help then you have taken the first step across the bridge to look at changes to improve your present and future happiness and well-being.

I offer a warm, friendly approach; my service is confidential and I guarantee sensitivity towards whatever issues you may be facing.

Psychotherapy or counselling sessions can be helpful in many aspects of life. The process is not about me giving advice or supplying you with an answer, but a supportive process for you to explore and find your own answer. The process of talking to someone who has no personal agenda in your decisions or areas of change can help with the issues that bring you to counselling.

My practice is in Kings Langley with easy parking and I also have availability to see clients in central St. Albans at the Albany Centre.

For more information about me and my practice, please feel free to call me on 07739 160151or send me an email to gail@kingscounselling.co.uk. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. There is also more information on my website at www.kingscounselling.co.uk
