COVID-19 Update: In addition to online video and phone sessions I am now offering garden based in-person therapy sessions. These in-person meetings are held in an outdoor space under the shelter of a gazebo. COVID-19 safety is taken as a priority. Please see 'Sessions' for further details.
Clinical Psychotherapist and Chartered Psychologist
Online 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 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.

Issues I work with
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 20 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 15 years in the area of clinical
psychology and counselling, publishing over 60 articles in the field of psychiatry and psychology.

Garden based meetings
I am very happy to offer in-person meetings if this is something you would prefer. While COVID-19 restrictions are beginning to ease, there remain risks of infection in terms of social contact and contamination. The environment in which these meetings take place is as COVID-19 safe as practical. These sessions are held outdoors within a gazebo situated in the practice garden adjacent to the therapy room I would normally use. There are potential disadvantages to this including disruption from adverse weather conditions. Furthermore I cannot guarantee sound proofing. This may affect your sense of privacy along with the possibility of noise distractions from neighbouring gardens. Steps to minimise this are in place, but I think it is important to be aware of this in advance.
The Park Street - St Albans practice is not suitable for wheelchairs. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about accessibility.
