Does life feel difficult at the moment?
Is it hard to talk to others about what you are experiencing?
Are you looking for help?


Hello, my name is Elizabeth Butler, welcome to this website. As a qualified and accredited counsellor and therapist, I offer a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore what is going on in your life. You can talk about anything that is troubling you, and how it might be affecting your wellbeing and your relationships with others.

Sharing what’s going on in your life in a comfortable and safe environment where your experience is heard and valued, might help you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Our lives can become complicated, events may have unexpected effects on us, feelings can become overwhelming; being listened to by an impartial and professional counsellor can help to give you a fresh perspective.

If you feel tense, irritable, hopeless or upset much of the time,
are having trouble sleeping, or fear being overwhelmed by stress, depression, anger, sadness or grief, then counselling could help.

Deciding to see a counsellor could be a positive first step
towards addressing whatever is worrying or distressing you.

I offer counselling to the Maidenhead, Windsor and Slough area
of East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.

Maybe you are suffering from low mood, depression or anxiety?
Or struggling to adjust to a major change in your life, such as divorce, redundancy, illness, or the loss of a loved one?
You might be having problems in a relationship, or experiencing work-related stress.
Sometimes it can be difficult to accept something that happened in the past, or there are times when we can feel trapped in a cycle of damaging behaviour.
You could be feeling isolated, or adrift, lacking self-esteem or a sense of identity.
Do you just feel stuck?

Understanding yourself and your situation more clearly can help you identify and strengthen your own resources to handle what is going on, both now and for the future.

Frequently experienced difficulties I have helped people with are:
(For a more comprehensive list of issues I can help with please go to How I work.)
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement, grief and loss
  • Depression
  • Divorce
  • Identity
  • Illness
  • Redundancy
  • Relationship and/or family difficulties
  • Self Esteem
  • Stress

There are many different reasons why people seek counselling and psychotherapy; what unites them is the desire to explore how they can live a happier and more fulfilled life.

Comments from previous clients (used anonymously and with their permission):

"I found it very easy to talk to Elizabeth, she was a great listener, kind and understanding."
"I wasn't sure what to expect with counselling to be honest, but I am really glad that I did it. I understand a lot more about how I feel ... and accept and manage things better. I feel so happy today - that shows the contrast I felt compared to when I started."
"Thank you. Counselling has helped me lots."
"The sessions have helped me with a particularly stressful time and allowed me to reflect on my feelings and reactions to these events."
"I gained a better understanding of how to deal with [specific] situations, which
was my aim in coming to counselling."
"I found the reflective neutral space that you offer very helpful."
"I gained a sense of trust with someone professional who was willing to listen and offer support when I needed it most... and the questions I had in my mind were able to be asked judgement-free."
"Time to think in a more organised way about what was going round in my head [and] deciding on a couple of action plans."
"It was easy talking in the sessions, although I felt nervous at the beginning it felt very natural to talk to Elizabeth."
"I appreciate your patience and time in assisting me to become a more mentally strong person."
"Counselling was very helpful, I would recommend counselling to others."
