Positive Gains was founded by me in 2009. My practice is based in St. Albans at both: Parkbury House Surgery and B. Healthy. Virtual sessions became the norm during the first stage of the Covdi-19 pandemic. This has proven very successful therefore I will continue to offer virtual session to clients who prefer to work this way. As an integrative psychotherapist/ counsellor I am able to use a wide variety of therapeutic tools and techniques in a flexible and adaptable manner to help each client in the best possible way.
