Anne Yelverton Dawson BA, MBACP Accred, FPC And UKCPReg. Practitioner, DipIPM
The whole basis of my work is that change IS possible.
My clients and I work together to provide solutions and a positive way forward away from their perceived problems and difficulties. These may be entrenched due to past history or may be of a current nature.
My aim and track record with clients is to help them to come to understand the reasons for their distress and to be able to tackle life in a much more positive and effective way.

When you first come to see me we spend about an hour talking about your concerns. We then think about the best way forward for you which may be some sessions of counselling with me. If so, we then fix on a day and time when we can meet weekly, for usually 6 sessions initially, so that we can best assess what you need to get out of counselling. During the inital session we discuss confidentiality and fees.
However, if we both agree that you need a different sort of intervention than counselling, I can help you with an appropriate alternative referral, bearing in mind of course your thoughts on this.
My counselling practice is near Great Missenden within easy reach of Aylesbury,High Wycombe, Chesham and the surrounding areas of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Oxfordshire.
The counselling room is dedicated to this purpose only, there is a separate entrance and car parking space is available. The location is easy to access but is extremely peaceful and discreet so that absolute confidentiality and privacy is ensured.
