I have significant experience in helping people to make helpful and positive choices and changes in their lives. I offer a warm, accepting and confidential space, to explore together whatever you choose to bring.
Sometimes life can seem overwhelming or difficult to cope with. It may be a specific event which has triggered something or it may be an ongoing sense of unease, panic and anxiety, difficulty with relationships, sadness, depression, anger or a whole host of other things. You may want to change unhelpful patterns which interfere with your happiness.
If you would like to meet for an initial consultation, with no obligations to commit, but an opportunity to see if I can help you, please don’t hesitate to ring.
My private practice is situated in Rickmansworth, 7 minute walk from station.
With over 12 years experience in a psychodynamic approach we will sometimes look at patterns, (which can originate in childhood), then we can explore them to find ways to make changes or develop alternative ways of coping.
