Many people think going to counselling is about focusing on what is making them unhappy but it is also an opportunity to take time out to discover what really inspires you and brings you joy. As a fully qualified counsellor I am here to offer a sanctuary - some time for yourself in which to explore in depth what it is really like to be you.
I beleive taking time out of our lives to step back and take stock is really important. I have been trained to help you explore your experience and will support and guide you to find a new perspective and direction.
I am a Psychosynthesis Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. Psychosynthesis has been described as 'a psychology with a soul'. It recognises that each of us is on a journey through life that is both purposeful and meaningful, even though at times it can be difficult and painful.
I have practice rooms in St Albans and Hendon, if you feel I can be of assistance to you please do not hesitate to call for a relaxed discussion about what you are seeking.
