 Welcome to our website.

You are probably thinking about starting therapy yourself or maybe you are concerned about a loved one. Either way, it can be scary to make the first move, and also confusing as there are a lot of therapies and therapists to choose from. I hope the information here helps you make a decision, however, you also have the option of meeting me for free. I am trained up to Masters level in the field of Mental Health with the University of Oxford, am fully accredited, and have over 13 years' experience as a counsellor (see more about me here). 

 

FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION

You can meet me, Antonia, face-to-face

for a full hour's consultation, at no charge.

There is no pressure to commit to further

appointments.

In this consultation, you can ask any questions you have and also get a formal assessment. This might help you decide whether the service I offer is what you need or not. There is more detailed information on this in the 'Free Consultation' section. Our practice is in a quiet, private and rural location, check the map on the right, or by click on the 'Times, Prices & Location' tab.  We hope you find our website useful. 


 INDIVIDUAL

COUNSELLING

One-to-one therapy can be really helpful in managing depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and many other emotional or psychological issues. It can be used as a support to manage diagnosed mental illness, or to help with  general distress that might have been caused by life's circumstances (bereavement, job difficulties, relationships, trauma, etc.).

RELATIONSHIP & MARRIAGE

COUNSELLING

If you and your partner are struggling, couples counselling can help you communicate in a healthier way to resolve conflict. Perhaps there has been infidelity or hurt and you can't get past it, or you are not sure if it is better to stay together or part ways. Counselling can help you both decide what is best for you individually and as a unit. Please click here for more info.


MINDFULNESS & COMPASSION 

There has been a huge increase in the use of mindfulness-based approaches in the mental health field, and the scientific research so far is proving it to be very effective. There can be a misconception that mindfulness is something 'fluffy' or only for people who are spiritual, or that it involves sitting in uncomfortable positions! This could not be further from the truth, please click here to read more.
