Welcome to The Mind Garden - counselling & psychotherapy close to Aylesbury, Buckingham, Leighton Buzzard & Wendover
Dedicated therapeutic counselling and psychotherapy close to Aylesbury and Buckingham, based on the Person Centred counsellor approach, in the comfort of a local, friendly, countryside setting.
Every client is as unique as the experience and challenges that bring them to counselling in the first place. We all have our own paths, problems, opportunities and solutions. Counselling can help you find the way when you are feeling overwhelmed, lost, misunderstood, angry or otherwise.
I offer a safe, private space to discuss your experiences and feelings, free from judgement or distraction, with the aim of understanding exactly how things are for you and working together to acknowledge and address the things that concern you most.
The Mind Garden serves two practices located in Wingrave and Winslow, within easy reach of Aylesbury, Buckingham, Wendover and Leighton Buzzard.
What does Person Centred mean?
Person Centred counselling is based on the principle that each individual holds the ability to heal themselves with the help of the right counselling relationship and nurturing environment. I work at a pace that honours each client, exploring issues in your own time and only ever in a way that feels comfortable for you. My aim as a counsellor is to allow each client a supportive environment to delve in to whatever it is that causes pain or concern, working together to find a way to accept all facets of your personality and past, and to acknowledge in to existence the issues or patterns that may be holding you back, with a view to finding a deeper connection with your true inner voice and a more contented way of being.
What should I expect?
I am always delighted to meet new clients and welcome any questions that you have. It’s not easy taking the first step towards healing and it can feel daunting speaking to someone for the first time which is something that I do not underestimate. My aim is to reassure you and make this as easy as possible. I will treat everything you say with confidentiality and we can discuss this in more detail at our first meeting.
As well as offering counselling in person for anyone looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist in Aylesbury, Leighton Buzzard, Wendover or beyond, I am also experienced in Zoom and telephone counselling and can therefore offer counselling and psychotherapy if Wingrave or Winslow is out of reach, and will always aim to find appointment times that work for you.
Covid 19 Update
Extra measures have been in place at both practices to ensure the safety of all clients. I'm aware that the current climate is unsettling and that everyone is reacting differently to the implications.
I want to reassure all clients that I will continue to be available to honour your appointments and I'm happy to confirm that appointments are still taking place in person, as usual. I have extended my working hours and I undertake a Covid test once a week, which is why I am confident about continuing my face to face practice. I have also had the Coronavirus vaccine.
If you are feeling concerned I am always available on email and will always try to reply promptly. Please rest assured that I am here for you, just as I always have been.
