My name is Gemma and I am a counsellor that helps people to feel less anxious. I am based at the Market Hill Therapy Room in central Buckingham.

I am passionate about helping people through difficult times, and strongly believe that enabling an individual to speak about their worries and concerns in a calm and trusted environment, can be a true healer. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

If there is anything you are unsure of or if you would like to book an appointment, then please do not hesitate to contact me via the contact form. I have experience of working with people with a wide variety of issues, and I am happy to hear about what is troubling you.

I am a Buckingham based counsellor, which is in easy reach of Milton Keynes, Bicester, Brackley and Towcester, please see the link to the map on the contact page for directions.

A thought for December

Are things getting on top of you? Perhaps you struggle to remember things, or that you just don't have the patience which you used to? Then perhaps the cup analogy might help you understand what may be going on for you.

Imagine a cup of drink, and if you keep drinking from that cup, at some point it will become empty. Imagine that the day has got warm, and you do not fill up that cup; at some point you will feel thirsty. As you get more and more thirsty, you might become distracted and frustrated. Imagine then that people start engaging with you, asking for advice or help, but all you can think about is how thirsty you are. Now imagine you have got hold of an nice cold drink, and the difference in how you feel once you have had that drink, and how much easier it is to interact with others once your thirst has been quenched - bliss!

Now think of your wellbeing as the cup. If do you not make time for yourself, you will be running on empty making it difficult to concentrate or be rational, and you might start to feel resentful towards others. If you make time for yourself and do the things you enjoy, perhaps taking time out to relax and unwind guilt free - then you are filling up your cup. We seem to be able to take time out to help others, but we do not always apply the same to ourselves. How about giving it a go and doing something for you?

The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power - Anon
