Psychological Therapy

I am trained as a Counselling Psychologist, accredited by the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I believe in creating a safe and supportive space for you to talk and share your experiences. I have 13 years experience working in the NHS, charities & counselling services. I have a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, an MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and a BSc in Psychology. I work with both adolescents and adults.

I support people who are facing issues such as relationship problems, family issues, stress, anxiety, low mood, low self esteem, eating disorders, anger problems, illness, life changes, fertility issues, behavioural issues, bereavement, addiction, abuse, existential issues such as a fear of loneliness/ death, feeling lost in life, among many more. I offer both short and long term therapy and am trained in a variety of approaches including Person-centered, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic approaches. I also integrate Mindfulness into my practice, helping you to build awareness of your mind and body.

I am a pluralistic practitioner, which means I adapt my practice to you and your goals. In my practice I aim to empower you to build your understanding of yourself, develop new coping strategies, build your sense of self compassion and overcome your difficulties.

I value and respect the courage it can take to begin therapy and believe in providing a kind and non-judgmental atmosphere where you will feel listened to and well supported. I work at your pace and I believe the therapeutic relationship is part of what makes therapy effective and healing. I can usually offer appointments within a fortnight. I work with several insurance providers such as WPA, Cigna, Healix and Aviva. I have two clinics, one in the town centre of St Albans, and the other in the countryside within the grounds of Hatfield House. I also offer virtual appointments.

Sessions last 50 mins and cost £130.
