The Isbourne Holistic Centre
2 Wolseley Terrace
I hold a well-established private practice in Oxford, a growing second practice in Cheltenham (Gloucestershire) at The Isbourne Holistic Centre.
CHELTENHAM PRACTICE is within the spacious welcoming Isbourne Holistic Centre, near Cheltenham Town Hall... with a public car park directly opposite the centre, very close to main bus routes and Cheltenham city centre shops, cafes, and public parks.
I am contactable via email, text, and phone. I will respond promptly to any message.
I encourage an initial conversation by phone (or via email), prior to your initial therapy session, as this gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about therapy with me and voice anything you may wish me to know about you.
My essential personal & professional approach is a mindful one which regards each of us as a human be-ing, while recognising each person's unique self. This translates easily into the way I work. I begin by recognising your being, your experience & life situation with sensitivity - taking care to match your needs and pace - as you engage in the process of therapy.
You may be considering therapy for the first time... or having had some experience of therapy in the past. As you may or may be aware, therapy - with the right therapist for you - provides a way to make the best of your self and your life in a truly meaningful way, from right now... on into your future. As such, therapy offers you a genuinely rewarding investment in true quality of life.
