Counselling can seem like a scary prospect for many and you may be feeling unsure about whether I can help you. Maybe you just want to have an informal chat to discuss if counselling is for you or you may wish to get a sense of who I am before you decide your next step.
I offer a safe and informal place where you can relax and be yourself. I won’t criticise, judge or trivialise your issues and I hope to support you with warmth and respect.
I am fully qualified and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, which is the main governing body of the counselling profession. I work in accordance with their guidelines and code of ethics and receive regular supervision to help maintain ethical and professional standards.
I work from private and relaxed counselling rooms near to Stokenchurch. It is conveniently located close to the M40 motorway and is easily accessible to anyone living in the towns of Beaconsfield, Thame, Watlington, Chinnor and Princes Risborough, as well as the surrounding villages and High Wycombe.
