Have you had times in the past when you've really struggled? Or maybe that time is now?

I know I have, and for most times like this, the support of friends and family can be invaluable. But there are times when we need just a bit more support to help us through a difficult and painful time. That’s when seeing a professional is so important, to have a non-judgmental and confidential space to talk through what you’re going through, your feelings and your struggles, to help you come through this and reach a far better place.
I’m Tom Buckland, an Independent, BACP Accredited  fully qualified Counsellor and Couple Counsellor, based in Hythe near Southampton, and also Harley Street London. I’ve been helping people through difficult times since 2003 and specialise in providing Couple Counselling (once know as marriage guidance counselling or relationship counselling) as well as working with Anxiety and Trauma. I often work in a solution focused way, helping someone overcome their issue and move to better place as soon as they can, but also work with longer-term psychotherapy to allow a person the time and space they need.

Couple Counselling
The Relationship Centre, Hythe Hampshire.
The centre was formed by Tom and his wife Tina (also an experienced counsellor) as a hub for couple counselling, research and development around forming a better relationship. The counselling is evidenced based and helps a couple improve their relationship, whether in crisis from an affair, or from years of indifference and poor communication. This has been developed from Tina and Tom’s experience in working with couples, and their belief that all relationships can improve with the right type of counselling.
Tom offers relationship counselling through the centre, and more details can be found at

Individual Counselling
can be used for many reasons. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety or OCD. You may have gone through a traumatic experience, or maybe you just want to explore changing your career, your life or maybe your relationships. Whatever it is, I can work with you, without making judgments or telling you what you 'should' be doing, so can gradually you get to the place you want, either emotionally or practically.

The Harley Street Clinic, London

The clinic in Harley Street sees Couples and Individuals. Tom holds specialist Solution Focused double sessions to achieve outcomes in shorter time-scale. See Tom's website for more information or contact by mail or phone for details. Opening times vary from Monday to Friday
