Caro Hill MBACP (Accred)
Therapy offers you, the client, a chance to be listened to without judgement, shame or preconception. It should be a safe and boundaried relationship within which to search for the meaning, sense and truth of your life and the other relationships you are part of.
I have broad experience of working with relationship issues, co-dependency, trauma and abuse. For those facing their own (or that of a family member) substance or process addictions and eating disorders I also have experience in 12 step programmes. As an integrative therapist I draw on aspects of various therapeutic models (but my style is essentially relational, drawing from a primarily psychodynamic perspective) when working with a client and to suit their individual needs. This means that over time we could use the hour together to explore the relationship issues (past and present), historical experiences, boundary issues and belief systems that may impact upon your life, work and relationships today. Or you may want to focus on a single issue to develop new coping strategies around it.
At heart I believe, as humans, we have a deep need to feel understood by and connected to others. I further believe that this is only achievable through first developing our relationship with ourselves. Therapy is therefore about gaining self awareness, then accessing and strengthening inbuilt resources to enable us to develop stronger and more rewarding relationships both with our selves and those around us. It offers us the opportunity and ability to make more informed choices in our own lives.
I hold additinal trainings in working with Trauma, EMDR and EFT which I integrate as part of my general practice.
I see individuals for private counselling in Oxfordshire and London (South Kensington).
As a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Practice.
