Beth Roberts Integrative Counsellor Dip. Couns BACP
Do you feel like you don't have ownership of your story? If we don’t have ownership of our story this can cause pain and suffering, or we may cut ourselves off from our experience entirely. Losing ownership of our story may have been caused by depression, anxiety, a feeling of being lost or a feeling of panic.
This in turn may have been caused by trauma, stress, abuse, loss, bullying or other adverse circumstances, or the cause of your distress might not be apparent to you at all. If you have lost ownership of your story it is not your fault and it is understandable that you need someone to help you work through what has happened and help you move forward. It is a very brave thing to try and find your own story and I am happy to say it can be done.
I offer a compassionate and confidential space for you to get to the root of what has happened and own your own story.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means that I have many tools to help you. These are the main principles behind my counselling:
- I believe the answers are within you and I help you find the answers.
- My holistic approach means that we can work on joining awareness of body and mind which benefits wellbeing.
- I believe our childhood, early life and past relationships shape us. Exploring and coming to terms with our past can be transforming.
- Creativity can be incredibly restorative. I can work with art, stories and objects if suitable.
- As I am also a personal performance coach I can work in a very goal orientated way if useful.
Taking the next step
I am happy to have a no-obligation chat via phone or email to give you a chance to ask any questions you may have. The reduced cost of £25 for the first session gives you a chance to see if my counselling might be right for you. I work from pleasant, quiet therapy centres in Abingdon, Banbury and Oxford. There are parking and reception facilities at Abingdon and Banbury.
