Simon Waggett Counselling

ONLINE and face to face COUNSELLOR BASED IN Berkshire

Welcome to Simon Waggett Counselling

My name is Simon and I am an intergrative counsellor providing both short and long term therapy to adults online and in person (in Newbury).

About Me

I'm an integrative counsellor, blending a person centred approach with psychodynamic theory. I feel these compliment each other and suit how I work. I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework and hold an up to date enhanced DBS.

Throughout my time as a counsellor, I have worked in agencies providing support for those who had experienced homelessness and those who were bereaved. I have also worked with clients who have had low self-esteem, anxiety and anger.

Speak in Confidence

My aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore issues relating to self, work, relationships and any other life events that may leave you feeling confused or stuck. Together we can explore the roots of these problems, in a way that is tailored to your pace and needs.

A problem shared...

Counselling is an opportunity for you to begin to understand and process certain aspects of yourself and experiences you have had. My role is to empathically accompany you, share observations with you and to actively listen. Perhaps you feel as though you are drifting through life with no direction or that those around you are too busy to hear what you have to say.

Make better, healthier new choices

Our sessions together will be a chance for you to be heard and I appreciate this may be daunting if this is your first experience of counselling.

What issues can counselling help with?

People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:


Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Anger management

Issues relating to sexuality

Difficulties at work or in retirement

Feelings of stress or anxiety

Panic attacks
