Ceri Phillips - Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor, MBACP
I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor with over 12 years counselling experience. I offer a warm, safe and confidential environment for you to talk about whatever is troubling you - whether it is from the past, or more recent.
Taking the first step to access counselling may feel a little overwhelming, but can lead to increased self esteem and knowledge, better relationships with loved ones and a greater quality of life.
Working together we can explore your inner world in order to gain self awareness which can empower you to choose alternative options. I strongly believe that the quality of our working relationship plays an important part in equipping you to make positive life changes and gain greater self acceptance.
I work with adults and young people ages 12 and up. I see individuals of any race, culture, religion or sexual orientation offering short or longer term work as required.
My private practice is located close to central Aylesbury with easy access from the town centre, local secondary schools and also has free, easy parking.
I have regular clinical supervision to ensure safe and ethical practice is maintained.
