Toni Buffham, Counsellor
Toni gained her CPCAB Diploma in Counselling from Wiltshire College. She is a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and works to their code of ethics. She is currently working as a counsellor for Wiltshire Mind as well as in her own private practice.
I am proud to announce that I have successfully achieved the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Accreditation status. This is a significant milestone in my journey as a counsellor as it means that I am now recognised as an experienced, ethical, humane and competent practitioner.
Over the last 10 years I have built upon my learning and experience to provide a consistent way of working in the best interests of my clients. This has involved gaining in-depth knowledge of working with clients with issues including anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorder as well as issues such as relationships, work or sexuality. My aim is to help my clients to live a fulfilling life in line with their own values and beliefs and to develop a way of living that does not diminish either themselves or others therefore increasing self-worth and self-esteem.
"Emotional problems do not go away by trying to ignore them. In fact we are increasingly recognising the link between psychological and physical health. Suppressing strong emotions can lead to symptoms such as sleep disturbances, headaches, aches and pains in other parts of the body and lack of energy.
Counselling aims to bring about empowerment so that we can make the right choices for ourselves rather than being influenced by the outside world. It helps us to explore deep seated fears and anxieties, to gain understanding, increase self esteem and confidence so that we can live life more fully."
The food we eat can have a significant effect on every aspect of our lives. Making adjustments to your nutrition and lifestyle can make a big difference to the way you feel and your health.
If you suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, evidence is showing the relatively new FODMAP diet can significantly improve symptoms in 75% of people. Studies show that reducing weight by 5-10% can cut risks of heart disease, diabetes and stroke and reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.
So whether you want to improve your energy, take control of your weight, improve your performance in sport or have a specific health concern, a consultation with a registered dietitian could benefit you.
Each consultation is tailed to your specific needs, to suite your lifestyle and to help you make achievable changes.
Dietary analysis is also available where your diet is nutritionally analysed, this is useful to check for vitamin or mineral deficiency, carbohydrates and protein intake for sport or for assessing overall energy intake or weight gain or loss.
