Counselling and Psychotherapy in St Albans
[I'm sorry I am unable to accept any new referrals until at least September 2022]
I am a psychodynamic counsellor with over 12 years experience. I welcome clients from St Albans and further afield, including Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, Watford and surrounding areas. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I believe that, with the right support, we can work through our own issues, whether you are suffering from anxiety, depression, coming to terms with the breakup of a relationship. Whatever the cause, having a listening, empathic counsellor alongside can make all the difference. Talking through emotional turmoil, life experiences or life changes with a counsellor can help you gain clarity and a better understanding of yourself.
Talking to our friends and family can seem too daunting, we can’t help wondering if we will be taken seriously and what they might think of us. We don’t want to worry them or think nobody will be interested.
What would it be like to talk to someone who will listen without judging or giving advice? As a psychodynamic counsellor I aim to do just that. Counselling and Psychotherapy can be an inspiring whole life experience or solution focused to help you through a particularly difficult time.
Psychodynamic counselling gives a great deal of significance to the role of early experiences in shaping our psychological development and our relationships as adults. As a Psychodynamic therapist I believe we are all influenced by both conscious and unconscious thoughts, desires, fears, anxieties and fantasies.
I work with adults and adolescents (11+) on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time. Your initial appointment will give you an opportunity to meet me and find out more about how I work, as well as telling me a little of what brings you to therapy. After that you can decide whether you will feel comfortable working with me.
I meet with my clients at the same time each week or twice a week for 50 minutes in St Albans.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
Bereavement and Loss
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery
Physical and Sexual Abuse
This list is not exhaustive, I will work with whatever you choose to bring to your therapy sessions.
My counselling room is in central St Albans within easy reach of Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead and Watford. I am close to the City Centre, St Albans City Train Station, M25 and M1. Parking is available.
