Dee Albert MBACP, Psychotherapist (MSc) for Individuals, Couples & Young People
I am a qualified Psychotherpist offering both long term and short term therapy. I am passionate about supporting you to look at life from a renewed space, enabling you to move towards positive change. Having the time and space to share these thoughts and feeling can give you the lift you need to step forward in life.
My approach to our work together will encompass my many life experiences, which includes the challenges and joys of growing up in a culturally diverse community, as a parent of two, a wife and an entrepreneur. I have also worked extensively with young people. These experiences interweave and influence my unique approach to therapy.
I have experience in working with a range of concerns including:
- Bereavement & Loss
- Confidence & Self Esteem
- Identity & Sexuality
- Postnatal depressions & Bonding difficulties
- Personal & Cultural Diversity
- Relationship concerns
- Conflict resolution
My area of interests are personal and cultural identity challenges and concerns, post traumatic stress, life transition (new job, moving in or out of a relationship, new parent etc.)
I will respect your views and support you to understanding what is going on for you. A common fear is that the process is painful and uncomfortable; however as we continue to work together you should gradually start to feel better and will find that your session can be enjoyable!
I pride myself on being creative and providing a personal therapeutic experience for each client.
