Welcome to Counselling Buckinghamshire

It can be very difficult to make sense of counselling and psychotherapy, especially at stressful and emotional times. 
I have developed my website to try to make your experience as helpful and useful as possible.
I hope you find it informative.  There are blog posts, videos and lots of other information and links which are there to help you work out what you want to do next.
If after visiting the site you would like to discuss things further, then please contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation.
I welcome your comments, feedback and ideas, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for visiting
Kind regards
Toby Ingham

 About me

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor working in Hazlemere, near High Wycombe, in Buckinghamshire. I worked as a staff psychotherapist at the Nightingale Hospital and trained in the NHS at:

  • St Barts’ Hospital, and the
  • Homerton Hospital in London

Before that I trained at:

  • Promis Addiction Centre
  • Age Concern

I have 18 years experience of working with people dealing with depression, low mood, anxiety states, trauma, bereavement and addictions. This means that I have a lot of experience to offer you.

Short and long term work available

I work on both a short and long term basis with people who are trying to work through a variety of situations and problems. Sometimes relating to a specific event such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy, sometimes relating to a more general problem or behaviour.

I am flexible, adaptable and experienced.

My psychotherapy and counselling practice is based at 212 Amersham Road, Hazlemere (near High Wycombe), Buckinghamshire, HP15 7QT

Toby's Office

My practice is in a quiet, confidential, comfortable and peaceful setting and I have ample space for parking.

Professional memberships

I am a member of the Guild of Psychotherapists and the Association of Independent Psychotherapists, and a member of the British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision (BAPPS). I have an MA in Psychotherapy & Counselling. I work to both the UKCP and the BACP Code of Ethics.

Supervision

I trained in supervision with The Society of Analytical Psychology, and I am registered with the British Association of Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervisors.  I offer supervision services for qualified, and training, psychotherapists and counsellors.  I am group supervisor at the Riverside Practice in Henley and South Bucks Counselling in High Wycombe.

CPD events

I design and deliver workshops on psychotherapy and counselling issues. I am committed to understand more about how we develop our understanding of psychotherapy and counselling subjects, and in how we continue to grow, enrich and develop our psychotherapeutic identities and our work. Please contact me if you would like to discuss how I might contribute to your CPD events.

Please contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation to talk through some of your feelings, thoughts, concerns or hopes.
