Jennifer McCabe L.LB (Hons) Dip Psych (Oxon).
I am an experienced therapist who will take great interest in you, and will want to talk to you about all aspects of your life.
I underwent a rigorous training at Oxford University and I am fully qualified to undertake psychodynamic counselling. This type of therapy means we will look at the possible root causes of your difficulties as well as ways you may want to act differently. Most of all it means we will think together about why you feel the way you do about certain events, and people in your life. It is by gaining this greater understanding about yourself that you can begin to make changes that could make the difference between existing day-today, and living a fulfilling life.
Free Introductory Session
At our initial meeting I will want to get an understanding of what brought you to counselling. To do this I will ask you about your family, your childhood and teenage years, as well as more recent events, and in particular the issues which are troubling you mostly today.
This will give us an opportunity to get to know each other a bit before committing yourself to therapy with me. It is important that we both feel that we can work well together. If you do decide to take things forward, we can meet for a minimum of six sessions to focus on a particular problem, or you may wish to come for a longer term, for example, if trusting people is something you find takes a bit more time.
Sessions last 50 minutes, and you can pay by cash or card at each session or I can invoice you monthly.
Please call to leave a message if you would like a free initial appointment, or email me with your contact details.
