Do you feel overwhelmed trying to keep up with the demands of everyday life?
Would you like to be able to regain some control over the direction your life is taking?
It can sometimes seem as though there is constant pressure to fulfill the demands placed on us by our work, families, and in our relationships.
It is not surprising that for many of us trying to keep up with these demands can have a detrimental effect on our wellbeing.
My name is Tim McLoughlin and I have been a practicing counsellor and therapist in Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Amersham and Beaconsfield for the past five years. I provide counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
Over the years, I have worked with both individuals and couples who have experienced difficulties with:
Being a therapist or counsellor is about understanding your particular needs, dilemmas and situation. It is specific to you.
It can sometimes seem as though we are experiencing the same problems over, and over again and instead of trying to understand why this is happening and to make changes that could stop this repeated behaviour, it can seem easier to try to make ourselves feel better, through drinking, dating, shopping or even by watching TV or playing computer games.
For many, using a counsellor or therapist would only be considered in times of real crisis but I think it is more useful to see therapy as a real chance to explore your situation, the problems you are facing and to make a positive lifelong change.
Instead of attempting to wish our problems away, therapists offer ways of developing insight into them. From this, we may be able to develop more creative and balanced ways of living with ourselves.
An area of particular interest to me is Animal Assisted Therapy, (AAT) whereby the presence of an animal in a therapeutic setting can provide comfort, aid relaxation and help some to talk more openly about their concerns. You can read more about this aspect of my counselling here. Just between Hazlemere and High Wycombe, I have a piece of land, which more and more of my clients are finding useful in working alongside animals as part of my developing Eco Therapy practice. 'Outdoor Therapy' or 'Nature based Therapy' provides clients with a welcome break from the business of our everyday lives. Outdoor therapy is entirely guided by clients and can be taken as part of longer term work or a stand-alone activity.
I am able to work on an open-ended basis or over an agreed time frame, I have two clinics based in High Wycombe and Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire within easy reach of Hazlemere, Amersham, Watford, Slough and London. In addition to this, Outdoor Therapy sessions run in Amersham.
Whether in High Wycombe, Amersham or Beaconsfield, feel free to book an initial session.
