Christine Young MBACP (Reg.)
With more than 25 years experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I emphasise compassion to achieve positive results with individuals and couples. I am well-equipped to guide clients through a wide range of emotional and interpersonal issues and have chosen to specialise in:
- Grief and loss
- Life-changing illness
- International relocation
- Career and work issues
I believe that a period of disruption and change, however challenging, also creates an opportunity for reflection and re-evaluation. Working with me will give you the ability to consciously shape your future in a safe and supportive environment.
What to expect: successful therapy requires a high degree of trust, so your first session is particularly important. We will discuss what you want to address, as well as your expectations, and you will be encouraged to think about whether we would work well together. Your confidence is key.
Training, qualifications & experience
I offer the best of three worlds. Born in Scotland, I have lived and worked in the United States and Switzerland, as well as in the UK. I completed my undergraduate studies in Glasgow, later earning a post graduate degree (MSW) in the US and more recently an MSc in Psychology, here in Oxford. My experience with clients includes working within organisations such as the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, Helen and Douglas House, SeeSaw and Relate. I am co-author of the book, Parents and Bereavement (OUP, 2012). I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and hold Graduate Membership of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).
