Counselling and therapy in Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes

If you feel you are at a turning point in your life,
if you need support to help you to make changes, or if you simply need to have some space to reflect,
then counselling could be for you.

I am a qualified and accredited counsellor with over thirteen years experience.
I work with both individuals and couples.

My specialist areas include:

  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • bereavement, grief and loss
  • health issues, such as cancer, health anxiety and sight loss
  • relationship difficulties (I am a trained and experienced couples counsellor)
  • stress
  • work-related issues, such as bullying, redundancy, or work-life balance

    I work from two locations: Leighton Buzzard, which is easily accessible from Aylesbury, Dunstable and Luton; and Stony Stratford, on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, and close to Bletchley, Buckingham and Northampton.

    Some comments from clients -

    "It always felt like a safe space to talk..I'm so pleased I took the step to try counselling"
    [S - female - age 32]

    "We found that each session offered us things to work on in between sessions…helped us to see how far we had come."
    [S&C - couple age 31 & 33]

    "You really made me think about things in a different way and I'm looking forward now, not back. Thank you."
    [C - female - age 50]

    "compassion and clarity'"
    [P - male, age 54]

    Relationship counselling
    If you are experiencing problems in your relationship you might like to try relationship counselling. Alternatively, you might prefer to talk through your concerns about your relationship in a one-to-one session. To help you decide which is right for you consider the following:

  • is the problem something personal to me or is it a problem within our relationship?

  • is my partner open to the idea of attending relationship counselling?

  • do I feel ready to embark on relationship counselling or would I benefit from some individual counselling first?

    I offer appointments in Leighton Buzzard on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Stony Stratford on Thursdays.

    I can usually arrange an appointment within five working days.

    If you live or work in Leighton Buzzard or Milton Keynes, or within convenient travelling distance, and you think that counselling might be helpful, - then please contact me to arrange an appointment or for further information.
