Welcome and thank you for visiting my page.
At times life can feel very stressful and we find ourselves struggling to cope. Taking the first steps in contacting a counsellor can feel daunting but those first steps can lead towards change, understanding and emotional well-being. It is also important to find the right therapist for you; it is my belief that it is the quality of the relationship created between therapist and client that is the key to a successful outcome.
How can counselling help you?
Seeking help from a counsellor is a positive step towards understanding yourself and your situation; relationship issues, grief, anxiety, depression, anger, stress, abuse, trauma and loss of identity, are just a few situations where I as a counsellor can provide a listening ear to help you develop a clearer understanding of your difficulties as you see them.
How can I help you?
I offer a safe, confidential and calm space for you to talk and be listened to in a non-judgemental way enabling you to talk freely about any issues and concerns from the past, present and future that may be troubling you, helping you work out things in your own way to allow change to develop.
How I work.
I work in an integrative way that combines different therapeutic approaches to fit individual needs, helping you develop a stronger, healthier sense of self, as well as to understand your feelings and emotions to gain a sense of meaning in life.
I have experience of counselling young adults within a college environment, I also volunteer as counsellor for a local organisation working with adult victims of abuse. I have a special interest in trauma and somatic therapy, a holistic therapeutic approach, being the connection between body and mind.
I am based in Deddington, near Banbury and Bicester Oxfordshire.
