About BSJ Counselling

“You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.”
– C.S. Lewis.

BSJ Counselling offers confidential non-judgemental life counselling in Berkshire to individuals aged 11 and above who are experiencing some level of distress. Counselling takes place on a one to one basis either in person or online. I will help to bring clarity to a situation which will empower you to make changes to your lives or in some cases simply cope with it better. I offer you the opportunity to understand yourself better, identify strengths and challenges, and bring healing and growth.

I am relatable caring non-judgemental and understanding. I believe that as long as there is life, there is always hope for something better.

I am a qualified person centred counsellor and prescribe to Carl Rogers' theory that each person has the capacity and desire for personal growth and change. This can be achieved within the right therapeutic environment which I offer in my counselling room in Farnham Common.

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, qualifying me to give insightful and professional life counselling for all kinds of problems you may be experiencing. I am also a full member of the BACP, and adhere to their Ethical Framework regarding good practice, ethics, and commitment to clients.






Core values of BSJ Counselling



To be professional, genuine, transparent and honest about all things in the therapy room at all times.


To give my undivided attention to my client in the room and treat what they share with respect and dignity. 


Everyone has a right to be seen and heard regardless of race, religion or gender.


I provide quality life counselling in Bershire, helping people from across South Bucks, Berkshire and Hertfordshire, as well as helping many other clients online.

Brenda made it easy and comfortable for me to talk about my feelings......

I went into counselling not knowing what to expect. Brenda made it easy and comfortable for me to talk about my feelings and the issues I had encountered in my life. She was able to tap into my experiences and make me really think about how they made me feel. She offered advice and support in ways I didn't think were possible. In 8 weeks I was able to come out confident and understanding what made me feel the way I was feeling and how to address the situation at hand, knowing what I can control and what I cannot.   |     |
