Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Harpenden
Hi, I’m Stephen. I'm based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire (Monday to Thursday) and near Chancery Lane between Holborn and City of London (Friday).
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
The website explains what I offer to help you understand and feel better about whatever difficult situation and issues you are experiencing.
Counsellor & Psychotherapist
I’m a professional who is approachable, caring and thoughtful.
My focus is on building a safe and supportive relationship with you.
I believe in demystifying mental health and helping others to explore the root causes of issues which can make longer-lasting, positive change possible.
My Qualification & Experience
I’m a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, registered with the BACP (i.e, British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Over several years, I have reached a significant depth of training and experience and helped people with a diverse range of life situations and issues.
I follow a strict code of ethics and high standard of practice.
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.
I OFFER AN EMOTIONALLY SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIP
… that helps you to tolerate and digest difficult feelings and thoughts
I EXPLORE WITH YOU CONNECTIONS BETWEEN YOUR CURRENT SITUATION AND YOUR PAST…
… so that you may understand the root causes of your issues
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…
… so that they may hold less power over you, and you can live life more freely
