Witney Therapy Centre

I am a qualified counsellor who is registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have experience of working with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, issues around fertility. bereavement, redundancy or workplace problems
It can be daunting to consider counselling or therapy and confusing to know which counsellor to choose for the best. There are many different kinds of approaches and all the recent research has confirmed that the most important element in getting a good outcome from counselling is the interaction or connection between you and your counsellor. It's all about who will work best for you.
Please have a look around my website and if you think I might be the right person for you to work with then make a booking for an initial session, where we can find out.

My fee is £42 for a 50 minute session, with a 50% reduction for the initial session. Sessions are weekly, and usually on the same day and at the same time each week, although if this does not work for you then we can discuss other patterns of meeting.
Whatever it is that is worrying you, exploring your feelings and thoughts in a confidential place, with someone who is there to support you can be very helpful. Do consider getting in touch so that we talk about how we might work together to help you make the changes in your life that are right for you.
As an Integrative Counsellor I have experience of a range of counselling styles and approaches and therefore we can work out a style of counselling that is right for you. I don’t do “One approach fits all”. It is very much about you, as an individual.
So, what is Integrative Counselling?
Integrative Counselling is less of a technique and more of a philosophy or approach. The English Oxford Dictionary defines Integrative as being: “Combining two or more things to form an effective unit or system.” Integrative Counsellors, therefore, have a holistic view of the person, seeing them as comprised of many parts that form their system. So my interest, as a counsellor, is in all the different aspects of your ‘self’: your feelings, thoughts, physical body and that indefinable part of ourselves we refer to as soul or spirit. I am also interested in how all those different aspects of your 'self' interact with the other people in your life, both past and present.
Integrative Counselling could, therefore, be described as an exploration, a journey, around your ‘self’.
