I am an experienced, qualified counsellor who provides short-term counselling or longer term psychotherapy at my therapy room in Watford (see pictures below) or via skype.
It can feel super daunting or overwhelming to begin therapy - it does for many, until that first session has taken place and you can breathe a sigh of relief that you made it through it. I create a safe, empathic and confidential space to explore what's going on for you. Some like a space to talk, others may like a more analytic, proactive approach with practical techniques and strategies. We would work together and assess your needs, to enable me to provide the right support, so that you get the best out of therapy.
There are many reasons that you may be looking for therapy. Maybe you want to look at your self-esteem or you're feeling stuck or frustrated. There may be family or relationship difficulties. There may be confusion over gender or sexuality or you may be suffering with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, flashbacks or PTSD. There may have been a bereavement or loss or you there may be an inner child that needs to heal from abuse or trauma.
Whatever your reason for coming to therapy, we can work towards you feeling comfortable in your own shoes and understanding yourself, your relationships and your world.
Sessions are £50 per hour. You're welcome to come and meet me for an initial session at a lower rate of £25 and you can decide if you'd like to move forward. If you have any questions, please don't be afraid to ask.
