Counselling and psychotherapy - St Albans, Watford and Hatfield
Welcome to my website.
Most of us experience emotional difficulties at some stage of our lives. Often these can be resolved without outside help. But sometimes difficulties persist and that is when therapy can help.
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor with over ten years post qualification experience accredited and registered with UKCP and a registered member of BACP.
I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and respectful space for you to talk in a way that is often not possible with family or friends. I work with individuals (including young people over the age of 16) and couples on an open ended basis or for an agreed time period depending on your wishes and needs.
Trained as an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, I bring together different perspectives that help me respond to you holistically and uniquely whether you come as an individual or couple. This may involve longer term work which includes exploring underlying issues from childhood which are impacting on your current relationships and general sense of wellbeing. Or you may wish to look at something specific with a counsellor on a shorter term basis. It is now generally accepted that what is most healing is the relationship between client and therapist particularly in longer term work where underlying patterns from the past may emerge.
I am experienced in working with clients whose issues include:
My current fees are £52.00 for individuals and £60.00 for couples.
In order to ensure our safety I am working remotely during this period. This can be on line platforms such as Zoom or Skype or by other means which we can discuss during any initial communication. I am keeping this under regular review in light of current Government guidance.
If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please call me on 07984 553656 or contact me by email. If I'm unavailable please leave a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours. All communications from the outset are confidential, except in relation to any exceptional circumstances (see FAQs) and there is no obligation to work with me following any initial conversation. If you are calling to make an appointment for couple psychotherapy or counselling I will also need to speak with your partner/spouse before arranging an initial appointment.
My psychotherapy and counselling practice in St Albans is in within easy reach of Harpenden, Hatfield, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City and other places in central Hertfordshire. Please see my Contact Me page for directions.
