John Landaw MA;UKCP Registered
I am a psychotherapist registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP).My practice is in Central Banbury, though I lived and worked in London prior to this. I worked for a number of years in London, both in private practice and in the NHS at St Thomas Hospital and within the Prison Service.
I came to practise psychotherapy after a career of many years at the Bar in London, and believe that this experience has helped me bring a fresh approach to my psychotherapy practice and, I hope, a common sense take on the problems my clients bring me. Clients seem to feel very much at ease with the friendly environment they discover on arrival. Perhaps parlty because I don't just sit and nod!
Although I am trained to work psychodynamically (ie what is happening in the unconscious that is causing unhappIness for the individual), I also work in the treatment of phobia, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),anxiety, OCD, anger, depression, and general relationship difficulties, including couple relationships. I work with adults and young adult I also work for large commercial companies for whom I provide critical incident support onsite (where there has been a serious incident at the place of work) and give general emotional support and guidance for their employees.
It is important to me to treat every client as an individual and I use a variety of techniques, including mindfulness and visualization, which I am continually expanding and adapting, while exploring with the client those approaches which feel most effective for them.
I am also registered with PruHealth, Bupa, CIGNA, Aviva and the Rehabilitation Network for insurance covered therapies.
