West Oxfordshire Counselling (Gareth Miller MA MBACP)

West Oxfordshire Counselling (Gareth Miller MA MBACP)

About me

My name is Gareth Miller and I run a private practice here in North and West Oxfordshire. My counselling room is in Kirtlington. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. My particular expertise is in couples' counselling and I have an MA in Relationship Therapy.

I am experienced in helping clients who are having difficulties with: relationships, divorce/separation, stress, anxiety, bereavement, redundancy, depression.

My practice is within easy reach of  Woodstock, Bicester, Chipping Norton and surrounding villages. Telephone consultations can be arranged in certain circumstances, if it is difficult for you to get to Kirtlington, but it is always better to meet face to face.

Training, qualifications & experience

Professional Qualifications

In addition to a Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling from the University of Oxford I have an MA in Relationship Therapy. I undertook this training with the Relate Institute.

Areas of Specialism

My main focus is on working with couples at any stage in their relationship. Couples might be married or living together or just good friends. I am happy to work with gay and lesbian couples, and also with single people who might have difficulty forming relationships, or with any kind of personal problem.

* I also have specific training and experience of working with clergy of any denomination and their spouses or partners.

Personal Approach

Everyone is different and it is important for the counsellor not to adopt a ‘one approach fits all’ style. I try to use an integrative approach, which uses insights and techniques from a variety of schools of thought – systemic, psychodynamic, transactional analysis and so on.

My fundamental principle is to get to know you as an individual or couple and to work with you in a way that is comfortable and appropriate for you at this stage in your life.
