About me

Let's talk, Confidential one to one counselling for men & women 17 years and over.


I am an experienced accredited psychodynamic counsellor/therapist and have worked privately and within agencies and charities for many years. I work privately at two locations. Primarily, The Eden room, which is located in a discreet and tranquil environment within the grounds of The Dutch Nursery in Brookmans Park. I also work at The Albany centre, located in the heart of St Albans.

Our initial session will give you the opportunity to talk about what has prompted you to seek counselling, and to decide if counselling is for you. Each regular session lasts for 50 minutes and will usually be at the same time and day on a weekly basis. I can arrange sessions with you on both a short term (6 sessions) or long term basis.

Sometimes you can feel low and confused and you don't know why and need help and support independent of that available from family and friends. Counselling can provide a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore your difficulties and be heard by a trained listener.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
