About me and my therapy practice

I have particular experience in helping individuals who suffer from anxiety (general anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD and health anxiety), relationship issues, bereavement and loss, depression and feeling sad, low self-esteem, stress and worry.     

If any of these issues sound familiar to you it is likely that you are experiencing some kind of crisis in your life and hopefully I can help you.  In counselling and psychotherapy you can talk about absolutely anything and I have learned to expect the unexpected! Sometimes you may feel your problem is small when compared to those of other people, but if it is important to you, that is all that matters. 

I offer a free initial session and there is ample car parking available.

I am an accredited member of BACP, hold degree-level qualifications in counselling and psychotherapy, and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.  I also receive regular supervision to ensure I work to the highest standard of practice and I am fully insured.

I work on an open-ended or fixed period basis and there is no fixed number of sessions.  That is entirely your decision and can be reviewed at any time.


Practice description

I work in a collaborative, integrative way combining Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a Humanistic approach.  Every client is unique and I aim to tailor the counselling to suit you.  My goal is to help you develop greater understanding, to be able to think more clearly, as well as to help you identify any unhelpful thinking patterns that may be contributing to your distress.  These could include anxiety (general anxiety disorder), panic, depression and feeling sad, relationship problems and low self-esteem.  Together we could develop more helpful coping strategies.

I have a dedicated counselling room in a tranquil setting in Wooburn Green which is convenient for High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Marlow and Maidenhead.  I work with adults and teenagers and offer flexible day and evening appointments.  I also work some weekends and bank holidays.

My first session

I fully believe that in counselling issues may be spoken about which are not easy and for this reason it is very important that you feel comfortable working with me.  I therefore offer a free initial session which lasts about 30-40 minutes prior to any counselling taking place. This allows you to briefly outline your reasons for accessing therapy such as wanting help in dealing with anxiety, panic, depression, relationship issues or low self-esteem.  It also allows me to say a little about how I work, to speak about confidentiality and to answer any questions that you may have. 

This initial meeting places you under no obligation and after this session you can either make an appointment for your first 'proper' counselling session, go away and think about it, or decide it is not for you.  There is no pressure.
