You CAN be happy and confident again, or even for the first time in your life.

To achieve happiness and confidence is everyone's entitlement and you are no exception.

Has something been bothering you all your life? Has this made you feel somehow held back? Does it seem that something has denied you the opportunity to fulfill your potential?

Or are you in a crisis which has left you feeling not your usual resilient self and are you becoming frighteningly and increasingly unconfident?

I will work with you to find or restore your deserved level of happiness and confidence. Whatever it is that troubles you, have you ever considered therapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy in Great Missenden

I work with individuals or couples, face-to-face, for varying lengths of time, according to client's needs.

I work with clients collaboratively to find solutions to their problems and to resolve the impact of the difficulties of life. We can all feel stuck due to our history or current crises and my aim and track record with clients is to help them to come to understand the reasons for their distress and for them to be able to tackle life in a much more positive, effective way.

In the first session we concentrate on what are your problems and issues so that we can find out what you want to get out of therapy. If we agree that the best way forward for you is some therapy sessions with me, we then fix on a day and time when we can meet, usually weekly. During the initial session we also discuss confidentiality and fees.

However, if we both agree that you need a different sort of intervention than therapy, I can help you with an appropriate alternative referral.
