Dr Muriel Walshe
I am psychoanalytical psychotherapist with extensive experience of working with people with a range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety and emotional difficulties brought on by relationship problems, bereavement, abuse or trauma. I also specialise in helping people find a way through big life changes such as parenthood, marriage, divorce and career changes.
My clinical experience
Alongside my private practice in St Albans, I have many years’ experience of working within the NHS as an honorary psychotherapist at the Psychotherapy Department, Maudsley Hospital London and Camden and Islington Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Service.
What happens at the first meeting?
The purpose of this first session is to give us a chance to meet each other and get a sense of how we might work together. We will talk about what brings you to therapy and what you are hoping to resolve or achieve. You have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the different therapy options. At the end of this session you will hopefully have the information you need to help you decide what the next step is for you. It might be that you go on to schedule sessions for an open ended or brief therapy but sometimes a consultation can be enough in itself.
Private Medical Insurance Registers for Psychotherapy
