Welcome to my practice for psychotherapy and counselling
Psychotherapy and counselling in Berkhamsted, near Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley, Tring
My practice is now closed for the summer and will reopen on Monday, 22 August 2022.
Welcome to my practice for psychotherapy and counselling. You may be looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor because you feel low, unmotivated, stuck, confused or anxious. You may be grappling with a difficult situation in your life currently, or with something that has happened to you in the past. Perhaps you struggle with the dynamics in a close relationship or at work.
As a psychotherapist I am skilled at working with you to move towards better emotional wellbeing and change. You may want someone to listen to you carefully and allow you to process feelings and thoughts, or you may want to develop new strengths and traits.
Whatever your reasons for coming to psychotherapy my aim is to facilitate a dialogue and a conversation between us, with the aim to help you to make decisions for yourself.
Psychotherapist and Counsellor
UKCP and BACP registered
Psychotherapy for individuals and couples
By coming to psychotherapy you are taking the first step towards change. I have worked with many clients presenting with a wide range of issues such as: processing past events and trauma /Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
loss and grief
dealing with illnesses
adjusting to major life changes
work related issues
Sometimes circumstances and feelings can be overwhelming and people feel stuck, confused and torn. In therapy we can gain more clarity about where we are at, who we are, and different ways forward.
Psychotherapy or Counselling?
In psychotherapy the aim is transformation, long-lasting change of how people are in the world and with others, as new strengths and traits become integrated as part of the personality. Counselling supports people to cope with a difficult time by drawing on their existing resources and is usually a short-term process.
It can feel challenging to make the first step of contacting a psychotherapist or counsellor. I will respond to your enquiry, whether by email or phone call, in a sensitive and empathetic manner. If I am unable to offer you an appointment at a time that suits you, or if I feel that I'm not the right person for you, I will recommend other psychotherapists and counsellors in the area for you to contact. Normally, an initial consultation takes place to give you an opportunity to get to know me and to experience how I work. After this consultation you are welcome to take some time to think about whether psychotherapy and counselling is right for you before you commit to further sessions.
Need help immediately?
If you need to speak to someone immediately you can ring the Samaritans, where someone will be at the other end of the phone to listen: The Samaritans offer 24/7 telephone support. Their number is 116 123.
