Hannah Gattrell MBACP, Dip.Couns
I am a registered BACP counsellor and work with adults to explore a range of relationship and emotional issues including anxiety, depression and low self esteem. We all respond differently to life's difficulties and may realise we want to make changes to how we respond but find the task overwhelming. I aim to co-create a space with you in which it is safe to share, and gain understanding about, the thoughts, feelings and values which make up who you are or hold you back from being who you want to be.
My core way of working is person centred. This is a gentle and non-directive approach which allows you to remain in control of where the work goes. My training combined the person centred approach with Transactional analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I draw on elements of these approaches where I feel it may be beneficial to you.
I worked for many years in a corporate environment, so understand many of the strains and stresses which sit alongside work in a high pressured environment, with long hours and demanding targets.
I also have a particular interest in working with people who struggle to find their place in our society. I have counselled adults at a charity for homeless and insecurely housed adults. I have also worked with detainees, offering support through the asylum process.
Whether you need support for anxiety, depression, work stress, low self esteem, relationship issues or a loss you have faced, I offer friendly, professional and confidential support.
I work in the centre of Bicester with plenty of free parking nearby.
