Hello and welcome my name is Garon Sheppard a Long Crendon based Counsellor near Aylesbury,Bicester,Thame.

Whether you are in the midst of experiencing indefinable feelings of dissatisfaction or seeing to focus on a specific issue, I provide a safe and confidential setting in which thoughts and feelings can be discussed – free from judgement and prejudice.
Experiences and problems that we face can create feelings of unhappiness such as stress, low mood and a loss of control or direction in our lives.
It can also be difficult to truly share our thoughts and feelings with our friends and family.

I can offer you a confidential place to explore issues and feelings without any pressure or judgement.
In doing so it can help reduce confusion and encourage proactive change and to help you move forward. Taking this first step can be empowering and may feel a bit scary at the same time, but the best results are achieved by talking it out, with the assurance of knowing that you will not be judged, but met with empathy and understanding.
I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

As an integrative Counsellor, I draw on elements of different perspectives and provide a unique therapy which can be adapted to suit a client's needs. I use the insights and techniques of Humanistic Counselling, Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, as well as holistic therapies, including Reiki and Mindfulness as and when required. To help gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and work towards a new and happier sense of self.
The first step of the process is taking the first courageous step to seek therapy.

In addition to face-to-face counselling, I can also offer a range of access opportunities for counselling Including over the telephone, online and walk talk therapy if required. Helping you reflect and develop ways to move forward, tailoring each session to meet your individual needs.
I will support you in finding solutions or finding a change in your life where required...
I will accept and respect you for who you are which will help you to feel more confident and improve your self-worth.
My approach is to treat each person as an individual. Everyone is treated with respect and discretion

I am passionate about creating a safe and non-judgemental and confidential space in which you feel comfortable to explore the issues and concerns you are facing at present.
Everyone is the expert of their own life and it’s my job to help you to make the changes that are important to you.
I can offer confidential supportive counselling for a range of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety,
addiction, relationship difficulties, trauma and abuse.
I offer short/fixed-term counselling as well as long term counselling. I can offer sessions on a weekly basis to clients.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. ”

Carl Jung

I am also a qualified Reiki Master Teacher trained by using the form of Usui Shiki Ryoho.
Reiki is simply a relaxing therapy, some people have Reiki because they are stressed, feeling anxious, or grieving, others need more balance or clarity in life.
Reiki is helpful for all – you don't need a reason to receive it.
I find that using both therapies work very well within the therapy process of releasing any stresses or worries.
