Counselling and Therapy in Harpenden

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor offering weekly, one-to-one counselling in Harpenden. Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling, I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space for you to unburden and feel heard.

Sometimes people turn to counselling after a traumatic event, such as a bereavement, divorce or redundancy. Often, however, people find themselves struggling for less clear-cut reasons. They may suffer from persistent anxiety or depression, or feel stuck or lost without knowing why. They may wonder why they repeatedly end up in unhealthy relationships, or feel bullied at work, or have intimacy issues. Such problems can be made worse by feelings of shame, guilt or anger, which they might feel unable to share with their loved ones.

Talking to a professional counsellor or therapist can help.

My practice is in central Harpenden, in a discreet location off Harpenden High Street. It is within easy reach of Luton, St Albans and surrounding villages such as Redbourn, Wheathampstead and Markyate.
