Our difficulties can leave us feeling lost, unheard and confused. My approach is not to tell you what you should or shouldn't do but rather to think with you and support you as we explore your feelings and experiences of what ever may be difficult for you. My approach is psychodynamic, which aims to link early experiences and relationships with current behaviour, situations and relationships. Regardless of our age, we all have an inner voice that needs to be heard, nurtured and encouraged and I will offer you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in which to express that inner voice.
I am a BACP Accredited counselling psychotherapist working privately with adolescents and adults in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. I also work as a school counsellor and with adults in a charitable setting.
Our work together will be one to one and either open-ended or short term depending on your need. Our initial session will give you the chance to tell me your story and enable me to ensure that my approach will be the best one for you. Thereafter we will meet weekly at a mutually convenient time and these sessions will each last 50 minutes.
