Judy D'Arcy PG Dip MBACP (Accred), BACP Registered Counsellor and Supervisor
You may be going through a difficult time, need somewhere to talk openly about your feelings or concerns, want to work on longstanding issues, or you may want to develop your self awareness and potential.
I believe in the power of being really heard and understood, giving you the space to find the way forward that is right for you, at your pace. I aim to offer a confidential and non judgemental space to assist you to find new ways of coping and to make positive changes.
I can offer you a warm, confidential and safe place to explore your feelings and where you can talk freely about the things are you are struggling with. Together we can identify and look at any problems (past or present) that you are experieincing in your life and where you might be stuck in patterns of behaviour that are no longer helpful.
Counselling can help you to understand how and why you feel as you do. You may experience an increase in self-acceptance and confidence, with an increased ability to make decisions.
My approach to counselling is Person Centred which means that you are the centre of our work I am here to be alongside you and will endeavour to help you help yourself.
As well as having much experience working with anxiety, depression, low self esteem my other experiences and areas of interest include:
- Relationship difficulties
- Feeling suicidal
- Self harm
- Health Issues
- Loss and grief
- Work related issues
As well as working in my private practice, I supervise counsellors working in a Drug and Alcohol agency and a Hospice.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I abide by their Code of Ethics and do not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation or physical disability.
I understand it is important to find the right person to work with and so offer an initial free 15 minute free phone call for you to make initial contact and for you to get a sense of me. You are also welcome to book straight in for an initial appointment which is also an opportunity to see if we are well suited to work together and look at how counselling can support you.
I offer weekly appointments which are usually on the same day and time each week. I offer daytime and evening appointments, I'm based in Farnham Common, which is close to Slough, Burnham, Stoke Poges, and Uxbridge areas.
There is plenty of parking available.
