About me

Hello and welcome my name is Garon Sheppard a Bicester based Counsellor near Banbury,Oxford,Aylesbury.

Taking this first step can be empowering and may feel a bit scary at the same time, but the best results are achieved by talking it out, with the assurance of knowing that you will not be judged, but met with empathy and understanding.
I work with individuals 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 approach is to treat each person as an individual. Everyone is treated with respect and discretion
Exploring the way you think and feel can develop your emotional intelligence and give you the knowledge to bring about the resolution you seek. I am an individual and a therapist that believes change is possible.

We often find that we hold the answers inside ourselves, but sometimes a little help is needed to gain clarity. Sometimes, just one appointment can put you back on track, so I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, depending on your needs.
As a therapist, I offer understanding, clarity and empathy.
I can offer you a confidential place to explore issues and feelings without any pressure or judgement.
In doing so it can help reduce confusion and encourage proactive change and to help you move forward.

I work from home within private practice and mainly work with teenagers and adults.
My counselling approach is mainly from a Person-Centred perspective, however, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic Therapies are integrated as well as holistic therapies, including Reiki and Mindfulness as and when required.
In addition to face-to-face counselling, I can also offer a range of access opportunities for counselling Including over the telephone, online and outreach  if required.

I can offer confidential supportive counselling for a range of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship difficulties, trauma and abuse.
I offer short/fixed-term counselling as well as long term counselling. I can offer sessions on a weekly basis to clients.

“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.”

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. ”

Carl Jung

I am also a qualified Reiki Master Teacher trained by using the form of Usui Shiki Ryoho.
Reiki is simply as a relaxing therapy, some people have Reiki because they are stressed, feeling anxious, or grieving, others need more balance or clarity in life.
Reiki is helpful for all – you don't need a reason to receive it.
I find that using both therapies work very well within the therapy process of releasing any stresses or worries.
