My name is Jennifer Bufton.
I am a qualified gestalt counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I am also fully insured.
If you are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, in distress, or struggling with relational problems or other life challenges, counselling can give you the confidential safe place to explore these issues.
You are the expert on you and counselling isn’t about being told what you should or shouldn’t do, it is a non-judgemental welcoming environment for you to work through decisions, strategies and find ways to live your life in a way that you are happy with. I can help you find your inner resources for change and your own personal growth.
I work with adults, adolescents and children; I currently hold a valid enhanced DBS certificate. I have extensive experience of working with young people and this reflects in my up to date diverse way of working.
I acknowledge that seeking counselling can be challenging alone and therefore I am more than happy to come to you in the comfort of your own home, alternatively I can offer a safe secure counselling room.
Short or long term counselling is offered; this can all be discussed in detail in an initial assessment session; our counselling relationship is priority.
I can offer telephone phone counselling too. This can help if you are not local and/or require more unsociable hours; such as later evening sessions. Flexibility can also be considered to accommodate shift patterns (where possible)
I am local to the Eastleigh area and can cover Southampton, Winchester and surrounding areas.
