Welcome to my Website

My name is Angela Buxton. I am a psychotherapist and through my work, I help people to get more out of life. I am fully qualified and I have many years' experience, working first as a counsellor in the NHS and since 2006, as a psychotherapist in private practice. I know from my experience that I can help people to improve the quality of their lives. I work with clear boundaries to the highest level of professional ethics. I would be glad to speak to you to see if I can help you, so please take the first step and call me on 020 8746 3905.

How I Work

I am an existential psychotherapist working psychoanalytically. I see clients from all walks of life with a wide range of presenting problems including: relationship issues, depression, addictions, phobias, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorders, eating disorders, loss of meaning in life and many other issues. I see individuals, couples and combinations of family members. If desired, I can provide a fully trained and professionally assessed therapy dog to be present during psychotherapy sessions. I also provide supervision to other practioners.
 

Individual counselling and psychotherapy.

Counselling and psychotherapy are sometimes known as the 'talking cures.'  These very powerful therapies help to resolve issues by addressing the underlying causes through talking with a trained professional. Improving the quality of life through a special sort of conversation is nothing new. Over two thousand years ago, Socrates said: 'The unexamined life is not worth living'.

Couples and Family Therapy

Couples or other combinations of family members may become stuck in ways of relating that are painful. This is where counselling and psychotherapy can have a substantial impact by introducing a neutral point of view into the relationship.

Other psychotherapy services

I offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists, I can provide canine assisted  psychotherapy and I offer Skype or telephone sessions if appropriate.

What to Expect

I offer fifty minute sessions from Tuesday to Saturday between the hours of 7am and 9pm, charged at a rate commensurate with my level of qualifications and long experience.

The first step for you would be to call me so that we can have a short telephone conversation to confirm why you are looking for a therapist. Depending on that conversation, we can arrange an assessment session. The assessment works both ways: I will be checking to see if I can help you and you will be assessing me to see if you feel comfortable talking to me. If we decide to work together, we would agree how many times a week and at what times it would be convenient for you to attend and I would explain my Terms to you.  I work with a strict therapeutic contract with attendance and notice of termination specified in advance, however for every client there is a six week trial period that may be ended by either of us with twenty-four hours’ notice. After this trial period, the notice required is six weeks.

During the sessions, you may talk as much or as little as you like. I may ask questions about what you are communicating and may comment on what I think is going on. What you talk about is up to you and the aims or any goals of therapy are entirely in your own control.
