Welcome to The Mind Garden - counselling & psychotherapy locations close to Aylesbury, Buckingham, Tring & 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 Wilstone and Winslow, within easy reach of Aylesbury, Buckingham, Wendover and Tring.
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, psychotherapist or clinical supervisor in Aylesbury, Tring, Wendover or beyond, I am also experienced in Zoom and telephone counselling and can therefore offer counselling and psychotherapy remotely if Wilstone or Winslow is out of reach, and will always aim to find appointment times that work for you. In addition, I am a qualified clinical supervisor able to oversee other counsellor's clinical caseloads.
"I just want to say thank you for squeezing me in the other day, yesterday was the first day I didn't cry. I'm so grateful to have you in my life, I can't tell you what a difference you have made, just reminding you that you are amazing."
"Just a final note to say I hope you know that you have changed my life. You were the catalyst to me finally accepting my problems and how my recovery is my responsibility. I have had many therapists but you really carried me over the big hurdles. I would not be where I am now without your help."
"I was very hesitant starting therapy, I had therapy previously but it wasn’t a good match. When I speak to Anna, it is a safe space, she really engages with what you’re saying. Speaking to Anna feels like a warm hug on a rainy day, I would definitely recommend Anna as a therapist."
"Anna from day one has been nothing but professional and incredibly supportive. She has helped me immensely. Her knowledge and support is more than I could have hoped for starting therapy."
