Kingsclere Counselling Service

Madeleine Duncan-Booth

MBACP Counsellor

Appointments Available: Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays

Fees: £60 for 50-minute session

I offer a confidential, warm and welcoming space, where you can talk freely about your issues without judgement or criticism.

Through building a trusting and collaborative relationship we can work together with the issues you bring and find understanding of the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that you are experiencing.

Counselling will give you the opportunity to pause, breathe, reflect, and be heard. An opportunity which can bring about greater understanding and self-awareness, fresh perspective, and a stronger sense of self.

I find that words often fail us – we cannot find the words to really express the spectrum of emotions we are feeling. Therefore, occasionally, with your permission and with your comfort level being the most important thing to me, I may introduce a creative way of working.

Working creatively may mean using stones, shells, drawings or small objects to bring a different focus to our work which may enable us to gain alternative valuable insights that support your healing.

Training & Experience:

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. My core training integrated Person Centred and Psychodynamic theory. I then went on to take an advanced diploma in the therapeutic use of arts in therapy at IATE in London. I use my experience to tailor my approach, using these skills, to each client as I believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.

During my training, I worked with survivors of rape and sexual violence at the charity Trust House in Reading. I worked with them for over 3 years providing counselling sessions there and at the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) in Slough.

Clients who come to me often explore:

  1. Anxiety
  2. Depression
  3. Bereavement
  4. Trauma
  5. Life changing events and/or illness
  6. Past events and how it is impacting them now
  7. Family/work/relationship dynamics – past and present
  8. Personal growth and identity
  9. Hopes and fears for the future

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and fully insured.
