Are you feeling alone? Worried? Overwhelmed? Stressed? If you feel like there is nobody you can talk to, make contact with me now. I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist trained in Adlerian counselling. My current location is in Princes Risborough and Brill in Buckinghamshire where I have a quiet and comfortable consulting room at a GP surgery.
Counselling offers you the experience of talking with a skilled helper, who provides a comfortable space for you to freely explore a difficulty which may be of concern to you. As a counsellor, I provide you with a strong level of support to help you work towards a solution, best suited to your situation. Whatever the difficulty, you are always assured understanding and non-judgement. For most clients, it is easier to speak to a stranger then any friend or family member.
Fundamental to my approach is the belief that with the right support, we all have the potential to continue to change and grow throughout our lives. By understanding ourselves and taking responsibility for our feelings we can find greater happiness. To decide to come to counselling takes courage but it can be the first step on a journey of self-awareness, healing and fulfilment.
You want to get started but are worried/concerned what it will be like to have a session with me? Do not let your fear of a new situation or talking to a stranger hold you back. You can contact me by calling, emailing or texting me. We will have a brief conversation to get an idea of what you would like help with to ensure we could be a 'good fit'.
In our first session, we will discuss what you would like to get from counselling, how I can assist and if we both feel we can work together we can discuss how we will be going forward. Usually, we meet once a week and re-assess regularly how we are progressing towards the outcome we have agreed. Only when you are happy we can work together, will we book our next appointments.
What is different from other types of counselling? I often work with early memories in my sessions as I find many of them hold clues/blueprints you may have picked up early on in life about yourself, others and the world. When we unpack them, we can look at them and decide if these early beliefs are still useful in your life now and if not, we work on how to change these. If you have no early memories, there are a variety of other creative methods we can use which will help us to understand how you feel about yourself, others and the world.
I can support you with: Anxiety, Anger, Bereavement, Depression, Stress, Self-esteem, Confidence, OCD, Panic attacks, Phobias, Relationship issues, lack of motivation, Post-natal depression, Addictions, Fears and Parenting issues.
