Jennifer Oh, Psychotherapist, MSc, MBACP
I like to think counselling offers a way to create a space for yourself. A space for you to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences with a professional. The aim is that this exploration will support you in making clearer decisions, encouraging confidence and feeling more satisfied in your relationships. My training was in the field of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy which has at its base an intention to try and understand relationships, including the professional relationship with a counsellor. This means it will be vital for me to understand you as an individual in order to in turn understand you within relationships.
I work in a warm, friendly and non-directive way. Non-directive means I will not set the topic for us to discuss session to session. Rather, I will listen carefully and try to build with you an open, honest and on-going dialogue. If appropriate we can speak about your past experiences and how they may have influenced the present. And importantly, how to move forward. I have a particular interest in life transitions - how to navigate through change in a way that feels good and right to you.
I have an established private practice in central Harrow as well as having worked in different professional settings. I have years of experience working across private and charity sectors and within the NHS. My experience has included working with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, academic struggles, loss, low self-esteem. But perhaps you just feel you would like something to be different but may be unsure what might need to change in order for that different thing to happen. You may be trying to build a picture of what the future could look like. I would be happy to have a chat on the telephone to find out more and if I could be of help to you.
