Hayley Maddox Psychotherapist and Supervisor MBACP (Accred), Ma, PgDip, Bsc
If you are looking on my profile then you have already taken a big step. Looking for a counsellor can be challenging and confusing. The most important thing is finding someone that you can relate to and feel comfortable with.
I have been working in this field for over ten years. And I am passionate and committed to the work that I do. I love being a therapist and believe that change is possible for all of us.
I see clients myself , and I also manage my agency - 'Your counselling service'. We are a well trained and experienced team. We offer a confidential and safe environment for clients to explore feelings, circumstances and relationships. We are based in the centre of St Albans, and offer a quiet and calm therapeutic space where people feel free to talk openly and without judgement.
We help people to make sense of what is happening to them, and to look at what they are really feeling. We aim for clients to understand more about who they are, as well as the experiences and relationships that they have had. We also challenge any destructive thought patterns or behaviours, so that people can work towards a more fulfilling and calmer future.
The relationship between counsellor and client is very important, and it is a two way process. We therefore always suggest that an initial assessment takes place, where you can make sure you are comfortable to go ahead with your counsellor.
