Katia Houghton, registered MBACP
I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy. My aim is to create a safe and confidential space in which you can explore your concerns and increase your self-understanding at your own pace and according to your individual needs. I think that a secure therapeutic relationship, directed by what you want to bring to each session, is central to that process.
I practise in Abingdon and Wantage, both of which are easily accessible by car or public transport, and have free public parking.
For more information about my practice, please take a look at my website or contact me directly by email or phone.
Training, qualifications & experience
Registered member BACP (registration no. 087586)
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Psychodynamic)
BA Hons (Oxon.)
I am currently in further postgraduate training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
I have completed a four-year diploma training in psychodynamic counselling. Having gained my experience working in a local counselling service, I now work in private practice and as a secondary school counsellor.
I have experience of working with a wide range of relationship and other issues, including depression, anxiety, stress, sexual and physical abuse, aloneness, family problems, infertility, bereavement, grief, and lack of self-esteem, but I am very conscious that every client is an individual, not just a collection of issues or problems, and base my approach on their unique experience of what is going on with them.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I abide by the BACP's ethical framework.
