Counselling and therapy in Leighton Buzzard

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

    My counselling practice is based in Leighton Buzzard, which is easily accessible from Bletchley, Dunstable and Luton.
    I work at The Old Surgery Counselling Centre, 34 High St LU7 1EA where there are several counselling rooms, all on the first floor.

    If you need more accessible premises then I also offer appoinments at The Old Surgery's other address just off the High St on Church Square where there are two ground floor rooms and nearby Blue Badge parking.

    Some comments from clients -

    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 with a counsellor 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?
