If you need to talk about your feelings and problems in an empathetic and confidential environment, then you should consider counselling. I work with adults and children of all ages, who require counselling in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and more specifically, in Beaconsfield. I work with people who are struggling in many different areas, including stress, depression, eating disorders, self-harm and anger management to name a few.
Counselling gives you the opportunity to discuss issues that are causing you distress. Aa a counsellor, I will listen with empathy and an open mind, and won’t judge or give advice. By using the skills I have acquired through my extensive training, I can help you to achieve an understanding and insight into the issues of concern. If you’re dealing with difficult feelings, maybe feelings of shame, guilt, anger or sadness and you’ve undertaken the brave step to seek counselling, you’ll likely feel nervous. It is important, therefore, that the process is very much taken at your own pace. It is my job to help you to reach the goals that you want to achieve in therapy, and this is a process that we do together. If you’re looking for counselling in Beaconsfield, I can provide a safe and supportive space for you to start to move forward and begin the journey towards a healthier and happier sense of well-being.
As a Counselling Psychologist, I work in an integrative way – I have been trained in all the key therapeutic modalities (eg Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred, and Psychodynamic). I will adjust the way that I work with a client, depending on both the individual and the issues that they are wanting to work on. We are all unique and as such, there is no one approach that fits everyone in all situations, so it is important to find the right way of working with each individual, to promote a sense of well-being. Counselling can help you break down your issues into more manageable parts, so they don’t seem so overwhelming. With counselling, the more commitment you make beyond your sessions, the quicker and more long-lasting the results.
When you hit a crisis point in your life and decide you need counselling, you may not feel comfortable with the thought of speaking face to face. You may be housebound, or you may simply prefer the comfort, security and flexibility of speaking from your own home. In this situation, I can provide counselling services via telephone or Skype.
