A safe, confidential and judgement free space
At St Albans Counselling Services, our approach is mainly Psychodynamic, which is a client led approach that supports in understanding the links between one’s past experiences and their impact on the present.
The word psychodynamic can sound daunting. However, it derives from the Greek word “psyche” – the totality of the human mind, conscious and unconscious and the word “dynamic” which relates to change, activity or progress.
Working together we will be able to start to untangle the combination of challenges, thoughts and emotions that can be overwhelming, to bring insight, empathy and understanding. This facilitates a capacity to cope with external and internal uncertainties, building resilience and creating a path for positive change.
At St Albans Counselling Services you will find a safe, confidential and judgement free space. We offer either telephone or face to face sessions, which are held at our therapy room based close to St Albans city centre and train station,
