Deciding to access counselling can be a difficult first step for any of us, and I recognise the bravery it takes to simply get to this point.
As a professionally qualified and experienced person-centred counsellor, I believe that you know yourself better than anyone. Working together in a mutually respectful way, I hope I can offer you the time and space in which to explore the feelings and issues you would like to talk about in a confidential and safe environment.
I work from a secluded private location equidistant between High Wycombe, Great Missenden and Princes Risborough with free parking.
