It takes a lot of courage to get to the place where you can talk to someone you don't know about the situation that is causing you so much pain. To help you on this road, here is a little bit about me.
I trained as a person-centred counsellor, and see clients in my private practice; I work in doctors surgeries and with companies employed by businesses (EAPs). I have experience of working with local authorities, schools, and the NHS. I also work with clients of all ages with Asperger's Syndrome and their families.
During this time I have developed an integrated approach to counselling which is guided very much by the needs of you as the client. I believe the counselling relationship is a chance for us to work together on issues that affect your life. I also believe I can offer you the opportunity to do this by offering my respect for you in an open, honest and empathetic way.
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which is my professional association. As an Accredited Member of BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to its' Professional Conduct procedure. I am also a General Member of the British Psychological Society
As a practising counsellor and psychotherapist I have regular supervision and hold professional insurance. I am also actively involved in continuing professional development training.

I also offer 4 sessions for the cost of 3.
There are also concessions, so please ask.
Counselling is a chance to explore issues you cannot talk to anyone else about, no matter how close they may be.
We can work quietly at a pace that suits you. I will always respect your values and coping skills that have helped you in the past.
My practice is in Maidenhead which is near to Reading, Slough, Marlow, Bourne End, High Wycombe and Windsor. The first session is a chance for us to decide if counselling is what you want and whether we can work together. We can discuss what is troubling you, as well as the boundaries of confidentiality in counselling. If at the end you don't want to continue that's not a problem.
