I am the Practice Counsellor in a surgery in Bicester where patients are referred by their GPs. Alongside this I offer a Private Counselling Clinic which is a confidential, discrete and separate service from my work in the surgery.
In my experience, talking therapy can be helpful in the management of Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement and Loss, Depression and Relationship or Work related issues. It can also help in improving Confidence and Self Esteem .
I believe that we all deserve to be happy and healthy and that when we ignore our emotional wellbeing, we often experience uncomfortable or painful physical symptoms. (The MIND - BODY link).
Similarly if we are physically unwell, we might experience anxiety, low mood, depression or even anger.
Through counselling, I can offer you strategies to cope/manage. I do not offer advice. The objective is to enable you to become more resilient and robust in order to withstand whatever life throws or has thrown at you.
