Clinical Psychotherapist and Chartered Psychologist

Online and In Person Counselling Service

Local practice at Park Street - St Albans

Individual and Couples/Relationship Therapy

If you are experiencing difficulty or distress in your life, psychotherapy and counselling can provide a time and place for when you most need support. It can also be an opportunity to work through the problems you are facing. Alternatively, it might be that there is some dissatisfaction in your life or that you have lost a sense of purpose or direction. You may be in a relationship that is going through a difficult time.  If you are in any such situation my aim is to help you reflect on the issues that are troubling you, help you to seek an understanding of what you are experiencing and to work with you to explore what options there might be to help you through this difficult time.

My approach

My theoretical orientation is integrative, which is a way of working that is informed by, and incorporates aspects of, different types of psychotherapy and counselling such as psychoanalytic, cognitive and humanistic approaches.  My training has been based on an integrative approach and I work in this way with adults and couples on an open-ended long-term basis.   I provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your concerns and hopes for the future. I will work hard to understand your expectations of therapy and to make sense of what is most important to you right now.

Experience and expertise

In my work as a psychotherapist I see people with a range of problems, difficulties and challenges  I have worked with both younger and older adults including, for example, many years experience counselling and mentoring University students.  I also provide relationship counselling

and work with couples where there is some difficulty or

crisis in the relationship. 

 

As a chartered psychologist I have 25 years experience as

a mental health researcher that includes working at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and the

Tavistock Clinic. My research focus has been to seek an understanding of what may put someone at risk for developing a serious mental health problem. I have

lectured for 20 years in the area of clinical

psychology and counselling, publishing over 60 articles in the field of psychiatry and psychology.
