Struggling to Cope?

As we rapidly approach Christmas, many people find this a hard time of year emotionally. With the stress of organising or the sadness of remembering, this can be a tough time for people of all ages & backgrounds. Even after the festivities have finished, emotions are heightened for many reasons & counselling may help you to put things in perspective.

Based in Bourne End, I have worked as a volunteer counsellor, set up a support group for people with a Chronic Illness/pain, created & run a local community website & have also written an Agony Aunt column for one of our local newspapers.

So What Does Counselling Involve?

Counselling gives you the opportunity to have some quality, personal time for yourself. It gives you time to talk about any issues or concerns with an experienced therapist who will hear & understand you in a non-judgemental way.
You will have the valuable time to explore your thoughts & feelings, & reflect on your life looking at the past, present & opportunities for the future. By working through your difficulties you can make changes that suit you & give you a more fulfilling life.
Each session is client led & non-directive, meaning you are in total control of the areas you wish to explore.

There are no limits on how many sessions you can have but we can discuss this during your initial appointment. I work within the ethical framework of the BACP which gives you the assurance that I have trained & practice to a high standard.

Therapy can help you with many issues including:
* Depression, Stress & Anxiety
* Relationships
* Eating Disorders
* Abuse
* Bereavement & Loss
* Health Issues
* Life Changes & Transitions
* Addictions
* Self-Harm
* Self-Esteem

All sessions are strictly confidential & last 50 mins which are normally on a weekly basis.

No referrals needed & I can usually offer an appointment within a couple days. Concessions are available.

Could you keep the Bucks Village Journal going?

I am once again on the hunt for someone who would love to take over the Bucks Village Journal…could that be you?

I love the website & the content it holds but I just don’t have the time to keep it going & due to health, I can’t do the networking needed or attend the events that would help to keep some interesting posts about what is going on in our beautiful area.

There is so much that could be reported on locally, so much more history to share & so many events that could be covered.

If this idea would interest you, please email me at kaye.townsend@btinternet.com

I look forward to hearing from you, Kaye.

Now & Then ~ Amazing Drawings Of The Rose & Crown Over The Years, Thanks To Willis Godley

I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Willis Godley who lives near what was, the Rose & Crown public house for many years. Mr Godley who is now 96 years old, had been a furniture designer in High Wycombe many years ago & used his amazing drawing skills to document the Rose & Crown during the years 1946 & 1965. Once he realised what we were doing with the Now & Then photos, he offered to show us his drawings & allow me to photograph them to share with you.
