Hi, I’m Stephen. I'm based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

My Approach

I practice a type of talking therapy called psychodynamic therapy.

 

I listen to and reflect on your thoughts, feelings and experiences and I sometimes focus on the dynamics of our relationship and your past relationships to enable us to explore patterns and potential root causes of issues.

 

This approach can make longer-lasting change for you possible.

Your Past

What's Not Conscious

I WORK WITH YOU TO GENTLY BRING TO THE SURFACE FEELINGS, THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES THAT YOUR MIND HAS BLOCKED TO PROTECT YOU FROM PAIN…
