Catherine Cour-Palais Registered MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced and accredited counsellor working at the Banbury Therapy Centre. Whatever brings you to counselling I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential place for you to explore what is going on for you. My aim would be for us to develop a trusting relationship in which you feel respected and heard, and in which we are both able to be open and honest. This way of working together helps you to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences; develop awareness and new perspectives; and find your way forward.
I am a warm and attentive listener. My main way of working is person-centred, and I use aspects of other therapeutic ways of working when helpful, including Transactional Analysis, CBT, Gestalt and psychodynamic approaches.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and an and Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), working in accordance with BACP ethics.
