Who We Are

All counsellors at South Bucks Counselling are either fully qualified or  undertaking accredited counselling training. All of our counsellors are closely supervised in order to ensure that the psychological help we offer you is of the highest possible standard. As an agency we adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.

Counsellors at South Bucks Counselling have trained in the psychodynamic model, and as such, consider that as adults we are all strongly influenced by our earliest experiences and relationships.  Counselling involves thinking about a client’s life history. Clients usually need help with current distress, so our counsellors think through immediate concerns as well as formative experiences.
