Hello, I'm Toby. I am a qualified integrative humanistic counsellor. I offer individual face to face and walk and talk counselling for those times when life can seem confusing or problems seem too much to handle on our own. Beginning counselling can be a big step and I hope that my calm and relaxed approach can help make it seem less daunting. I believe that counselling is a collaborative process, with the counsellor helping the client to explore their issues in a safe environment so that they can find the best way forward for them.
To enable me to be flexible to my client's needs, I take an integrative approach using aspects of Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Transactional Analytical and Psychodynamic modalities.
My service is situated in a quiet and calming room in my house in Pitstone (near Tring). I can see clients here every week day, except Wednesday. I also offer walk and talk therapy from this location.
