Christine Boyd Counselling & Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy in Sonning Common, Nr Reading and London, Paddington W2

You are probably reading this because you feel things have becoming difficult and overwhelming to manage. Do you feel you may need help with your mental health? You may feel stuck and do not know how to move on. You maybe feeling anxious, depressed, unhappy, lonely, have low mood, anger, sadness or loss. Do you have difficulties with relationships, whether romantic, friendships, family or at work? Perhaps you are struggling with a life event, redundancy or loss of work. These difficulties tend to originate from our past experiences and can be worked on in therapy.

Identifying and working through the beliefs that you have about yourself, beliefs often established in early life and adolescence, can have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself, your life and your relationships today. As a psychotherapist, I use a range of therapeutic approaches to improve emotional or psychological issues. I aim to provide the supportive conditions to help you to grow, learn, heal and become empowered.

Could you benefit from a calm place, with professional experience to help you to explore your thoughts and feelings?

My name is Christine Boyd and I have been an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist in the Thames Valley, (Sonning Common) near Reading, RG4 for over twenty years.

My aim is to enable you to enhance your mental health, your life and relationships and to live it more fully as you increasingly realise your potential.
