I am a experienced therapeutic counsellor/ Psychotherapist offering counselling to adults couples and families within Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties.
With over 28 years working in the Health profession, I've attained good listening skills and appreciate the importance to be able to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for clients to consider and explore what may have brought them to counselling.
My work can be short term or open ended with adults clients.
My experience over the years has been supporting clients who have come to counselling due to crises, anxiety, depression, loss, physical and emotional abuse as well as addictive and repetitive life patterns.
The British Psychological Society defines counselling as a process "designed to help people improve their sense of well-being, alleviate their distress, resolve their crises and increase their ability to solve problems and make decisions for themselves."
I work from two clinics located in Amersham and Aylesbury. I am able to offer counselling daytime, evenings and Saturdays.
If you would like to explore the possibility of counselling with me, please telephone or email and we can set a date and time that is convenient for the both of us to explore your current situation and to decide if counselling and Psychotherapy is right for you.
