Chris Jefferies B.Sc ( Hons.), Reg.MBACP
I am very happy to conduct online appointments - telephone or Zoom or Skype or Facetime or Houseparty or similar. My face-to-face appointments will resume once it is safe & prudent to do so, as advised by HM Government.
I provide Relationship Counselling in High Wycombe, Downley (HP13 5TR ) , Marlow & Amersham for couples or individuals.
My aim is to create the best possible environment for those people who come with relationship issues they would like to positively change. An environment that is discreet, safe, secure, confidential and one that does not judge - the best possible space for high-quality relationship counselling &/or marriage counselling. Relationship issues can cause anxiety,so it is important that the counselling environment does not add to it in any way.
This safe environment is one where you will feel encouraged and confident to look at different aspects of your life, increasingly able to be aware of yourself and the best contribution you can make to a relationship – when you choose to. Having choices is all important to a potentially fulfilling and successful relationship.
The relationship counselling I offer helps you - as an individual or a couple - choose to take the necessary action to achieve the consequences you want.
My sessions are available weekdays, evenings and weekends to suit your availability.
Training, qualifications & experience
My career saw me develop into a Relationship Counsellor after a positive and successful track record with a number of private sector and charity organisations, coaching and developing many people to make positive changes and take actions that generated consequences that they were proud to be accountable for.
These individuals inspired me to learn and develop my counselling skills, especially in relationship counselling.
Over many years I have worked with Relate counselling to complete the necessary training and practical client experience. Whilst I continue to provide counselling for Relate clients in Central London, I am now pleased to also offer my relationship counselling service for the Bucks community at convenient venues in High Wycombe , Marlow & Amersham - weekdays, evenings & weekends.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£50 for 60 minutes
Your first consultation over the telephone ( or email if preferred) is free. This provides both of us the opportunity to establish that we can potentially work together successfully, and most importantly agree that counselling is the most appropriate next step you can take.
The BACP ( British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) believes that counselling changes lives and are committed to developing the highest standards of proficient and ethical practice. As a Registered BACP member I fully support this approach, committed to the safe and ethical delivery of counselling and psychotherapy services, and complying with the BACP Ethical Framework.
