Jeremy Brooks BSc (Hons), UKCP Reg, MBACP
17 West View Road
I am an experienced Psychotherapist / Counsellor and Supervisor with a Practice in St Albans, where I work with adults on a short or long term basis, according to need. Sessions last one hour and take place in my consulting room, a 'safe space' of trust, warmth, and confidentiality. My orientation is Transpersonal, which is a perspective that believes that we are more than the contents of our personalities; it is holistic, treating you as a whole person rather than as a collection of symptoms or problems. My role is to help activate your self-healing capacities mainly via talking, but possibly by creative visualisation, writing, free drawing, painting - whatever works best for you. Before becoming a counsellor I spent 20 years in commerce. I have a broad range of interests and experience and am particularly keen on outdoor pursuits such as mountain biking, scuba diving, motorcycling and walking my dog! In quieter moments I like to meditate, read, listen to music or visit the local pub.
